France hosted a European Conference on Automated and Connected driving on 16-17 February 2022. EPF was invited to take part in the workshop on acceptance and impacts. For EPF, the first question related to CCAM to ask is: What’s in it for the passengers – and what’s in it for society? Technology is an enabler, not a goal in itself.
The acceptance workshop’s outcomes can be summarised as follows:
- Match passengers needs
- Safety first
- More investigation needed on accessibility and inclusivity
- Testing required.
The presentations shown during the meeting are available on the website of the French Ministry.
