A driving force for change: Connected and automated vehicles

Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) is evolving quickly thanks to innovations such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) technology, and artificial intelligence. As a result, CAD is expected to increase safety, maximise comfort and stimulate business opportunities for a range of mobility services in the coming years, and the market size is expected to reach 50% market penetration by 2035.

In light of this, it is no surprise that CAD will be a key topic for discussion at the 25th ITS World Congress in Copenhagen, which will showcase the latest connected and automated mobility developments and demonstrations.

“Connected, cooperative and automated transport is experiencing rapid technological growth. There is no doubt that this development will influence mobility and urban living over the coming decade,” said Steffen Rasmussen, Head of Projects, at Copenhagen’s Technical and Environmental Administration. “It is immensely important to maintain dialogue and cooperation between the private and public sector to ensure that this development improves people’s quality of life and continues the trend towards healthy, liveable and green cities.”
