Autonomous Vehicles: Full speed ahead towards sustainable and digital mobility?

Rewatch this EURACTIV Virtual Conference to find out how long it will take until autonomous vehicles become the norm, and what is delaying progress. Discussed questions included: - Can the existing infrastructure be adapted to accommodate autonomous vehicles? - What are the most efficient technologies that can be deployed in a sustainable and ethical manner for making autonomous driving an everyday reality? - Is there harmonisation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) across Europe, such as data standardisation and the extension of digital infrastructure, to ensure a seamless service for road users and to prepare for autonomous vehicles? - Are users aware of, and ready for, the challenges, like roads with mixed driver and driverless traffic?
