In line with the strategy process of the EU-funded coordination and support action “Safe and COnnected aUtomation in road Transport” (SCOUT), results from this workshop shall deliver input for the evaluation of goals, expectations and use cases of safe and connected automation and thus contribute to the R&I roadmap developing process involving the automobile and IT sectors. This workshop aims at fulfilling one of the main project objectives: capturing expectations and understanding concerns regarding C&AD from users, technology, infrastructure and service providers and public authorities. The results will be used to start the roadmap development process by the SCOUT project.


The key questions for this interactive workshop are the following:

1. Who are potential individual and institutional users along the value chain of connected and automated driving?
2.  What are the objectives and expectations from connected and automated driving?
3.  How can hurdles be overcome and how is the automobile and IT sector involved in the process?
