New CAV Safety Hub website available

20 February 2019

While road safety practitioners are aware of the future development of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV), there is a poor level of understanding of their likely contribution to improved safety.

The objective of the CAV Safety Hub project is to increase the awareness of the road safety community in the value of emerging technologies, aimed at not only assisting the driver but also increasingly capable of carrying out parts of the driving function and accelerating consumer demand for safer vehicles.
