The European Commission, with the support of the EC-funded project ARCADE, is pleased to announce its Second European Conference on connected and automated driving: ‘Connected Automated Driving: Europe takes the lead’.

EUCAD 2019 is the only conference in Europe that brings together political leaders from the European Commission and Member States with high-level representatives of industry and road authorities to discuss all the major challenges related to automated mobility.

Taking place just one month before European elections, EUCAD 2019 will also convey a strong message to citizens: their acceptance is key to the success of CAD. Engaging different segments of society in the discussion helps to establish a sense of inclusiveness and shared ownership and will encourage this acceptance

AUTOPILOT will be part of the event with a demonstration at the AUTOWORLD Museum.

The project wants to show the added value of IoT for automated driving. In this AUTOPILOT outdoor demo, some of the partners (Eindhoven University of Technology, HUAWEI, NEC, VICOMTECH, Technolution and TNO) will showcase one of the use cases: relocation of driverless vehicles in urban environment. The demo shows how VRU detection could be utilized for safely maneuvering an automated vehicle through crowded areas, including its warning system and perception technology developed within the project.
