EUPAVE position on Connected, Autonomous and Electric Vehicles

 

EUPAVE released a position paper on Connected, Autonomous and Electric Vehicles on the occasion of its Christmas Dinner Debate held under the theme, the role of transport infrastructure for road safety and automated, connected and electric vehicles.

Smart transportation will soon create a world in which vehicles are autonomous, electric and connected to other vehicles and the infrastructure, making decisions with minimal human input. Infrastructure will be an important component for these “vehicles of the future” to correctly operate, and so public administrations and road authorities must start preparing now for this inevitable development.

EUPAVE and its members are eager to facilitate the transition to autonomous and electric vehicles, not least because of the specific advantages that concrete pavements and infrastructure offer in this transition, but also because of their massive potential to enhance the sustainability of road transport.
