AUTONOM - Analysis, evaluation and requirements of autonomous vehicles from a transport policy perspective

Technological innovations in the field of autonomous cars make hitherto unimaginable applications possible. These innovations are primarily industry-driven. Socioeconomic interests, such as the reduction of greenhouse gases, environmental protection, promotion of public transport or the job-market are left aside. Decision makers and the government address these issues usually at a very late stage. Often regulatory efforts are only made when new technologies are marketed. These issues therefore, have to be at the centre of the discourse at a very early stage. This would be advantageous both, for the industry and for transport policy.
