|Venture||Strategic Innovation Program Drive Sweden|
Purpose and goal
The Network Automated Driving (AD) Regulation aims to strengthen innovation capacity in automated driving (AD) by bringing clarity to international, EU, and national regulations. This project aims to support companies to advance in the AD arena and offer the authorities valuable insights into how the industry interprets the existing and upcoming regulations. Roundtable discussion with a wide variety of partners under a neutral forum provides a unique opportunity for experience and knowledge exchange among the industry and the authorities.
Expected results and effects
The project aims to strategically strengthen Sweden’s position in innovation and make Sweden an influential actor in AD policy and regulation development by, amongst other measures, raising the knowledge level of AD regulations among the actors. The project outcomes would positively impact the AD ecosystem by fostering faster technology development and making vehicles safer. In the long run, it will support new regulations and policy formation on the EU level, enabling technology and service development and making Sweden a more attractive market to international actors.
Planned approach and implementation
The working process is based on quarterly meetings to bring clarity to regulations for stakeholders (WP1 The Forum). Discussions are structured under four themes: 1) Practical interpretation of the current and new regulations, 2) Input to the upcoming international and 3) Swedish regulations, and 4) preparation for infrastructure adaptation. Besides, the project includes a separate work package to focus on research to ensure we have the knowledge required in the Forum (WP2 The Learning). We will study the cases raised at the meetings and follow up on the AD regulation initiatives.
