Connected vehicles are rapidly becoming a reality in Europe eu trading and consulting group ab multiple benefits are expected to arise from their deployment: The market will evolve eu trading and consulting group ab The gradual moves towards highly automated vehicles will only accelerate this trend. Expected to be launched commercially in Europe inhighly autonomous vehicles could reach a global base of 14 million by Eu trading and consulting group ab two evolutions could bring about a new industrial revolution and immense social progress.
However, it is still unclear how this transition will take place and how the different players will be impacted. The discussion on automated driving and connected cars, both eu trading and consulting group ab a technical and at an institutional level, has already started. The automotive and the telecommunication sectors, which are well established and leading European industries, have already been vocal in the debate.
A European horizontal platform for interaction to define the challenges is missing. The Club aims to involve all stakeholders participating in or impacted by the autonomous vehicles including: Automotive OEMs and their suppliers, insurance and rental companies, private and public transport operators together with infrastructure builderscity councils and of course the European institutions.
The Autonomous Clubis a European forum for discussion, brainstorming and exchange, which will gather participants from various horizons. Two guiding principles will steer its activities: At each event, at least one institutional and one industry representative speak on the chosen issue.
These events will be opened to all stakeholders by invitation only. Club members will benefit from additional services. Although the first vehicles are not expected to be launched at the commercial stage beforethey could reach a global base of 14 million by Despite this very quick uptake and its disruptive potential for multiple industries, very few businesses are aware of how the automated vehicles revolution will impact their future.
Many are already on the move on these issues but the rest of the automotive ecosystem OEMs and automotive suppliers, rental companies, private and public transport operators, infrastructure builders to name a few needs to get in motion. The topicality and the lack of awareness on this major development prompted The Autonomous Club TAC to organise a flexible programme of key topics based on the bi-monthly cycle of meetings.
While most of the meetings are planned in Brusselsif the needs is shared, TAC will be able to accommodate some of the meetings in other European capitals. A robust analysis of the economic, technical, social and strategic aspects of the development of connected and automated vehicles is crucial to detect the issues.
Some of them may already have been discussed but the complexity of connected and automated vehicles and the fast-paced environment eu trading and consulting group ab evolve in, requires stakeholders to constantly anticipate the emergence of new challenges. Once current and upcoming issues have been spelled out, stakeholders will have a clearer picture of the gaps legislation should, or should not fill.
Hence an open and inclusive discussion involving all stakeholders and issues, could be even more fruitful. What are the benefits to The Autonomous Club members?
The spirit of The Autonomous Club is an open association of corporate members to inform and br ainstorm on strategic issues around the vehicle automation and connectivity. TAC open group member.
