The report draws on the findings and recommendations of numerous platforms and research projects, including CityMobil2. It highlights the importance of ensuring a harmonised approach towards implementation of higher levels of automated driving functionalities. In addition to passenger cars and commercial vehicles, the document also considers CityMobil2 type vehicles, ie, smaller collective transport vehicles (such as cybercars) and buses.
The document provides an overview of current EU and international automation activities, proposes common definitions, sets out deployment Paths, identifies the key challenges and makes recommendations for research in relation to the H2020 2016/17 work programme. One of the recommendations is for further demonstration of automation in the urban environment as an integral part of the public transport system.
