Europe’s leading trade associations for the telecommunications and the automotive sectors announced last week that they intend to launch a large-scale, pre-deployment project to test connected and automated driving at the EU level.
The foundations of the project were outlined at a meeting in Brussels hosted by Commissioner Oettinger. The main objective is to strengthen Europe’s leadership in connected and automated driving by accelerating the EU-wide deployment of related key technologies.
