Sammendrag
This Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA) roadmap document addresses the Research and Innovation (R&I) activities and other policy support measures required so that the concepts of connected and automated1 transport (CAT), for all transport modes, may contribute to the Energy Union 2050 goals in the domains of decarbonisation, greater efficiency and competitiveness. Connectivity and automation in transport (CAT), covering all modes, provides opportunities for a variety of policy targets and objectives. CAT technologies can largely contribute to increase the efficiency and safety of the transport system. CAT will also be a necessary factor in establishing other technical solutions in the transport system, such as electro-mobility, new vehicle designs, new infrastructure, network traffic management and smart transport and mobility in general. In all transport modes connectivity and automation could deliver significant benefits in terms of fuel savings; 8-13% for trucks (platooning)2 and up to 25% through automation of existing vessels and more efficient vessel operation3. By emerging innovative mobility concepts, as enabled through connectivity and automation, even larger contributions to fuel and emission reduction can be expected, e.g. through modal shift to greener modes and higher vehicle occupancy rates for passengers or optimisation of the logistics and the s enabled by CAT technologies, has the potential to provide more inclusive mobility, and can give better access to jobs and training, which will benefit the economy. CAT is expected to improve safety in all transport modes. Human error is a major cause of accidents in all modes and increased and correct use of CAT will substantially reduce these accidents. Removing the human element from vehicle operation can have large benefits, by lowering accident rates and severity, particularly when automation is linked to deep-learning of the system. Other positive impacts on safety can be expected from improved technical monitoring and fewer technical faults. Integrated with more traffic monitoring and better management, CAT has the potential to substantially reduce the numbers of lives lost and injuries. Theoretically, one could see as much as a 90% reduction in accidents for some modes.
