SCOUT workshop on roadmap for level 4/5 connected and automated driving

SCOUT workshop on roadmap for level 4/5 connected and automated driving

07 Mar 2018 - 07 Mar 2018

Brussels, Belgium

On 7 March 2018, the SCOUT project will organise an expert workshop “Building a comprehensive European roadmap for level 4/5 connected and automated driving” at the Fondation Universitaire in Brussels.

The roadmap development process within SCOUT started with the analysis of user expectations and requirements to co-create a vision of CAD in Europe in 2030. According to the results of this analysis, level 4/5 automation would be the most preferred scenario from a users’ perspective. The approach was complemented by a state of the art assessment as well as a business model evaluation of CAD, showing that serious hurdles in various domains needed to be overcome for turning the vision into reality. Hence, it will be essential for the roadmap to highlight what needed to be done at different layers, namely in technical, societal, legal, economic and human factors. Therefore, the event aims to fill the pre-structured roadmap with action items on the timeline.

We highly encourage external experts related to any of the different layers to participate in the event and actively contribute to the discussion.

The registration for the event is free of charge and can be done informally via e-mail until 2 March 2018. Please contact Annette Schostak at or +49 30 310078 155 for more information.
