IRF Online Workshop: Unleashing road infrastructure for potential for Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility.

8 April 2020

This online workshop will take place on the 23rd April 2020.

The introduction of technologies related to connectivity, automation, electrification, and digitalization has kicked-off a challenging and exciting transformation of the transport sector which will be characterised by an equally challenging transition period to a new ecosystem. While most of the progress and debate around these issues has been so far centred around the vehicles, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the road infrastructure sector will play a significant role in ensuring that all the relevant parts of this new ecosystem work together and in the same direction, namely: ensuring seamless, safe, efficient, and overall sustainable transport.

This workshop session will provide insights into the role, the vision and challenges of the road infrastructure sector in this transition period towards Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM). It will do so by hearing from key stakeholders such as road operators, road markings and road signage providers, technology providers, researchers. They will debate regulatory and policy challenges, technological innovations, future workforce needs. Key priorities that need to be addressed now in order to prepare an adequate response to the development and operation needs of the roads of the future.
