Ethics of Connected and Automated Vehicles – Factsheet
The European Commission’s strategy on Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) aims to make Europe a world leader in the development and deployment of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs). Expectations are high. These vehicles can: bring down road fatalities to near zero; increase accessibility of mobility services; help to reduce harmful emissions from transport by making traffic more efficient. To reap the full benefits of these vehicles, many challenges have to be addressed: societal, technical, regulatory, economic, environmental and ethical.
