Development of automated and connected road mobility – State of play, challenges and actions for the national strategy

28 June 2023

As early as 2018, France adopted a strategy for the development of autonomous vehicles, updated in 2020, with two objectives: develop the production of automated technologies and modernize mobility services.

This 2022 update explicitly takes into account connectivity issues, and enlarges the scope to mobility services made possible by automation and connectivity. It aims to accelerate France’s commitment to regulatory, technological and economic models that will make the country a leader in the deployment of the most relevant and achievable use cases.

This 2022-2025 strategy is based on four key actions:

  • Prioritize and coordinate connectivity systems and data exchange deployments;
  • Finance investment projects in industrial supply of automated road mobility, ambitious service pilots, or first commercial deployments, in particular via France 2030 and by mobilizing European credits;
  • Support volunteer local authorities and operators in the deployment of passenger services;
  • Finalize the legal framework for automated freight and logistics.
