On 10 June 2022, EUCAR participated in a workshop organised by the TM4CAD project (Traffic Management for Connected and Automated Driving Project). The project is funded by the Conference of European Road Directors (CEDR) and explores infrastructure's role in supporting automated driving.
In the workshop, the TM4CAD project members presented their approach and basic concepts while collecting feedback from EUCAR experts. EUCAR was represented by Aria Etemad (Volkswagen, EUCAR Expert Group Automated Vehicles leader), Christoph Kessler (Ford of Europe), Nicolas Vignard (Toyota Motor Europe) and Luis de Prada (EUCAR research programme manager). The participants discussed and exchanged...
The Code of Practice for the Development of Automated Driving Functions is available on EUCAR’s website
The Code of Practice for the Development of Automated Driving Functions (CoP-ADF) is one of the major achievements of the EU-funded automotive research project L3Pilot running from 2017 to 2021.
This document provides comprehensive guidelines supporting the design, development, verification and validation of automated driving technologies.

The scope of the CoP-ADF (see image above) is focused on SAE Level 3 and 4 functions in passenger cars for motorway and parking. However, extensions to other Operational Design Domains (ODDs) or automation levels are also...
On 7 March 2018, EUCAR participated in the Driving Future Platform event at the European Parliament. In these workshops, organised by MEP Ismail Ertug, relevant stakeholders came together to discuss future vehicles and mobility. The importance and relevance of research funding to advance connected and automated driving was discussed.
Clara de la Torre, Director for Transport in DG RTD of the European Commission, stated that "Connectivity and automation technologies are already in our vehicles and in our transport systems: let us unleash all their potential by investing in research and innovation to grasp their benefits for our citizens, for our economy and to keep the European...
Already today, road vehicles provide advanced assistance functionalities and support the driving task in dangerous situations. In the future, we expect systems with significantly reduced reaction times and vehicle control for extended periods. Combining Connectivity, Cooperative systems and Automation for Mobility (CCAM) will bring us closer to Vision Zero. Through digitalisation, CCAM will bring mobility to a new level, improving traffic management, reducing congestion, and contributing to protecting the environment.
For this vision, Europe takes a leading role to guide the transformation, creating more sustainable solutions while strengthening European competitiveness. With this...
Brussels, 14 February 2020 – The European Council for Automotive R&D (EUCAR), representing the major European automobile manufacturers in their common research activities, welcomes the progress made towards an agreement on the next EU framework programme for research called Horizon Europe. To address the key challenges of Connected Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and self-driving vehicles, EUCAR calls for a co-programmed partnership across industry sectors and value chains.
Digitalisation and automation are both innovation drivers for the automotive industry and decisive factors for the future mobility of citizens in Europe. EUCAR is committed to delivering safer,...
Brussels, 24 June 2019 – The European Council for Automotive R&D (EUCAR), representing the major European automobile manufacturers in their common research activities, welcomes the progress made towards an agreement on the next EU framework programme for research called Horizon Europe. To address the key challenges of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) and self-driving vehicles, EUCAR calls for a co-programming partnership across industry sectors and value chains.
EUCAR advocates a co-programming partnership for CAM to leverage public funding with private investments across the value chain.
A co-programming partnership would enable quick and timely research actions;...
