The European Commission and FIA Region I backed project ARCADE are organising the 2nd European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving (EUCAD) Conference in Brussels on 2 and 3 April 2019.
With this conference, the European Commission intends to assess the implementation of the different actions concerning CAD, one year after the publication of its Communication on Automated Mobility.
Under the theme ‘Connected Automated Driving: Europe takes the lead’, the event will bring together political leaders from the European institutions and Member States with high-level representatives of industry and road authorities to discuss the major challenges related to automated mobility.
The two days event will feature: four plenary sessions where high-level speakers covering themes such as research & innovation, connectivity & data flow and public acceptance of CAD; break out sessions with discussions about how CAD will transform society and how it can be used as a mobility service; demonstrations and showcases to illustrate the progress of CAD.
FIA Region I places a high priority on the development of Connected and Automated Driving (CAD). Indeed, CAD is considered a key factor for achieving several FIA Region I policy goals such as decreasing the number of road fatalities and reducing congestion and harmful emissions.
ARCADE seeks to support the cooperation between major CAD stakeholders from the automotive, infrastructure, ICT and service providers sectors. It promotes the exchange of knowledge from past and ongoing activities at national, European and international level and builds consensus on CAD deployment scenarios and research needs. It is taking on the activities of the CARTRE project that ended in October 2018. FIA Region I is part of the project consortium.
A detailed programme will be published in the coming days and registrations will open soon here.
