CIVITAS Webinar: Connected and Automated Driving in Cities: How can cities prepare for it?
Automated? Autonomous? Self-driving? Connected? Cooperative? So many different terms, so many different questions, yet not that many answers. To clarify these and provide a better context to how the topic connected and automated driving (CAD) is shaping around the world, the CIVITAS SATELLITE project in cooperation with the H2020 CoEXist project organised a webinar on automation in cities on Monday, 26 February 2018, at 12:00 – 13:30 CET.
The aim of this webinar was to give an introduction to automation and initiate a dialogue to increase the awareness of local authorities and other urban mobility stakeholders and practitioners. Starting a discussion now will help cities prepare for and understand the issues that arise due to the constant technological development. The webinar particularly focused on the role of automation for public transport and gave a concrete example on how a mid-sized city is preparing for automation.
