The 4th European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving (EUCAD) was recently held on May 3rd and 4th in Brussels. The conference was organized by the European Commission, together with the European Partnership on Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and the FAME project, and was focused on discussing the latest research, policy, and regulatory developments in the field of CCAM.
The theme of EUCAD 2023 was in line with the European Green Deal and the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy, which aims to leverage the digitalization of transport with climate-neutral objectives to make transport smarter, safer, and more sustainable. The conference focused on innovative solutions such as Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility that offer affordable, user-oriented, and inclusive shared mobility concepts for passengers and for goods.
EUCAD 2023 was attended by political leaders from the European Commission and Member States, along with European and international high-level representatives of industry, academia, and road authorities. The conference provided a platform for stakeholders to participate in active debates, identify challenges, needs, and synergies towards the deployment of CCAM, and discuss the most recent technological developments, policies, and R&I activities in the area of CCAM.
Our team had the opportunity to attend EUCAD 2023 and showcase Future Mobility Campus Ireland (FMCI), which is focused on driving innovation and collaboration in the field of connected and automated driving. We had an exhibition space at the conference where we shared our expertise and connected with other stakeholders in the field.
Overall, EUCAD 2023 was a great opportunity for our team to increase awareness around what we do and who we are. We hope that this conference will lead to more collaborations for future European projects and help accelerate the development and deployment of connected and automated driving solutions.
