Commission launches public consultation on Connected and Automated Mobility

The European Commission launched yesterday a public consultation on the use of pioneer spectrum for 5G large scale testing, on cybersecurity and on a data governance framework that enables data sharing, in the context of Connected and Automated Mobility.

The input will feed into a new policy Recommendation to be adopted in the next months, as announced in the recent Communication on Connected and Automated Mobility, as part of the 3rd Mobility Package. Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel said: ”We should use digital technologies to improve peoples’ life. Better mobility is one of the areas where improvements are certainly possible. This consultation will help us shape our policies and respond to citizens’ expectations regarding Connected and Automated Mobility.” Connected and automated vehicles generate data which can be re-used by service providers aiming to provide mobility services that will make transport safer, cleaner, cheaper and more accessible to the elderly and to people with reduced mobility. This public consultation aims to address important remaining challenges linked to the deployment of connected and automated vehicles today and is open to the general public, industry, such as car manufacturers, service providers, connectivity providers, telecom companies, public authorities and civil society organisations. The consultation runs until 5 December 2018.
