The basic formula to approve CAV in Europe and how to deal with scalable compliance in the future

The presentation gives an insight into the basic formula to approve connected and automated vehicles in Europe by highlighting the challenges of the European L4 directive. Furthermore, it shows the release into the market of a member state. It also explains how to deal with scalable compliance over the whole lifecycle from the perspective of a technical inspection company.
