ERTICO Session

ERTICO Session on Connected and Automated Driving



Date                         Tuesday, 27 February 2018


Venue                      KORSTON Hotel (Ershov str -1a), Kazan, Russia


Panellists                ASFINAG, SWARCO, VOLVO Group, ERTICO, KAMAZ, NAMI



Connected and Automated Driving is the hot topic in European discussions at both the policy and technology levels. The automotive Industry, the telecom industry and the European decision-makers are preparing for what looks as inevitable: self-driving vehicles are soon to be seen on our road networks. Technology and highly automated driving systems are running at a faster pace than most of us expected. Some private sector companies have placed self-driving vehicles out on the road network already in the US but Europe still needs to take important decisions and actions. The road infrastructure has an important role to play. It is called upon to address the needs of the digital age and accommodate the existence of both connected and automated vehicles as well as those that are using legacy systems. In the transition from the current situation on the road network towards the situation where fully automated vehicles manage to reach full penetration, the road infrastructure has to be able to host and enable all types of vehicles.


Goal of the panel discussion

How will the private and public sector plan to contribute to the readiness of road infrastructures in Europe for what is about to come and how does the infrastructure of the road network have to respect the fact that change, no matter how fast, needs time to be complete? This session’s interesting panel discussion promises to examine Connected and Automated Driving and identify what are the steps that can make a difference even in the short term. The panel will give concrete examples of AD technologies on vehicles, on the roads and in the traffic management centers which can make a difference already today.


Moderator Jacob Bangsgaard – CEO, ERTICO – ITS Europe




1. Klaus Schierhackl, ASFINAG: How are road operators in Europe already working on hybrid technologies that will enable vehicles to communicate with the infrastructure making it possible for public authorities to manage the network and its flow?
