TU-Automotive: European Commission Confirmed to Discuss Automated Tech at TU-Automotive Europe

Share Article

TU-Automotive announced today that Alain Van Gaever, Policy Officer at the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) at the European Commission will address the TU-Automotive Europe Conference (Stuttgart, 2nd-3rd November 2015) on efforts to fit automated vehicles into Europe’s Co-operative Intelligent Transport Systems.

Mr Van Gaever’s involvement comes at a time when the European Commission is setting aside millions of Euros worth of funding for research and pilot deployments within vehicle automation along the C-ITS corridor (running from Rotterdam to Vienna via Frankfurt). The aim of such initiatives is to integrate automated vehicles into the overall goal of making mobility safer, smarter and cleaner. Mr Gaever will highlight how a sea change in the Commission’s thinking surrounding transport policy will allow vehicles with more automated features to fit into smart cities that contain digitalised infrastructure (such as smart traffic lights). Mr Gaever’s presentation will complement the address of another intergovernmental organisation on this topic – that of Francois Guichard, Economic Affairs Officer and Engineer, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.

Speaking of the inclusion of the EC and the UNECE, Project Manager for TU-Automotive Europe, Jack Palmer, said, “Like TU-Automotive, these two international organisations see the convergence of connectivity, mobility and automated technology as crucial to the future of auto mobility. Our delegates are going to get a thorough analysis of the political challenges and opportunities in this space”.
