Abstract

Bakgrund

In 2014 the European Commission kicked off Horizon 2020. Since then three multi-year work programmes have been launched. One of the main objectives with Horizon 2020 is to address Societal Challenges, of which road safety is one. Over the years, a number of research topics have been directly devoted to road safety. Calls addressing e.g. connected and automated driving, ITS or infrastructure often include enhanced road safety as one of the key objectives.

Metod

Horizon Europe, the next framework programme, is currently under development. It is expected to be even more driven by global challenges as well as competitiveness. The launch is expected sometime during this year and the European Commission is proposing a total budget of € 100 billion for research and innovation during 2021-2027.

We will outline the following areas:

- Objectives and work programmes, how does the EU meet the challenges?

- How does Sweden draw benefits from the EU-programmes?

- Horizon Europe, what happens now?

Resultat och slutsats

This presentation will describe the Horizon programmes and the next steps in the shaping of Horizon Europe will be explained.

Abstract

Bakgrund

In its Vision for 2050, the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) provides long-term objectives for the improvement of road transport in the coming three decades. Being safe and secure at any time when using the European road transport system is included as an important objective in this vision. However, the EU is actually in a phase of stagnation in its efforts to improve road safety. Fatality and in particular injury figures have remained nearly constant since 2013. As a consequence, important European safety targets are getting out of reach.

Metod

Clearly intensified efforts for the improvement of road safety are needed, and research and innovation are key factors here. In this roadmap, ERTRAC proposes a set of eleven high-priority road safety research needs with a suggested timing for their inclusion in “Horizon Europe”, the next EU framework programme. Research and innovation projects addressing these needs should give ample room for citizens and road users themselves to engage. The overall scope of the roadmap is broad, covering all elements of the road transport system, all road transport modes and all phases from preventive to post-crash safety.

Resultat och slutsats

The presentation will cover the overall aspects as well as delving into some specific examples with high relevance to Swedish actors

Abstract

Bakgrund

Connected and automated driving is a rapidly developing area of road transport, and also one of the enablers for increased road safety.

Metod

The Connected Automated Driving working group within ERTRAC has developed an updated roadmap released in 2019. This roadmap provides development paths for connected automated; personal cars, freight vehicles and urban mobility vehicles. The roadmap has also provided a list of challenge-areas that needs to be addressed in order to meet expected deployment of CAD in Europe. T

Resultat och slutsats

This presentation will provide an overview of this roadmap update and discuss what challenges are important to address to secure that CAD technologies will be an enabler for improved road safety. It will also contain a report on the ongoing CSA (Coordination and Support Action) ARCADE, see https://connectedautomateddriving.eu/and the latest development from the Cooperative, Connected, Automated and Autonomous Mobility (CCAM) Single Platform that consist of an informal group of both private and public stakeholders organized by the European Commission.

Abstract

Bakgrund

EARPA’s mission is to promote awareness and understanding of the specific role and contribution of R&D providers in the automotive sector and reinforce the high-tech character of the automotive industry as well as its potential for future innovation and new opportunities. In this context, the development of future transport systems that are sustainable and safe is of utmost importance.

Metod

European mobility is in a period of change, fuelled by several coinciding trends. Some examples of drivers that EARPA groups are evaluating:

- Social drivers include demographic changes such as increasing migration towards urbanareas, an aging population, and shifting user preferences. This has a strong impact on mobility for people and goods.

- Regulatory drivers include environmental and health policies, more stringent standardization, as well as a drive towards zero fatalities and severe injuries from transport accidents.

- Disruptive technology drivers include electrification and automation, as well as data and AI revolutions.

Resultat och slutsats

Based on the drivers and additional factors, a number of key challenges have been identified and will be presented. One of the main conclusions is that the successful European model with strong collaboration between stakeholders need to be continued and supported.
