Automated driving

Relevant UNECE activities on automated driving

In 2014, the policy segment of the 76th ITC received presentations from Google X (disruptive approach in the technology deployment) and from Continental (step-by-step approach) on the progress made towards automated driving and the expected benefits. This was the starting point of various activities supporting the deployment of automated vehicles on roads.
