A coordination framework for R&I and large-scale testing and evaluation, for CCAM in Europe.

The EU funded ARCADE Coordination and Support Action has set up a comprehensive Knowledge Base for CCAM related activities in Europe and beyond. It gathers an overview of R&I projects and demonstration activities, regulations and policies, strategies and action plans, standards as well as methodologies for evaluation and data sharing. The next step will consist in building on experiences and lessons learned from initiatives across Europe to develop a European Framework for Testing on public roads, comprising a Common Evaluation Methodology and a Test Data Exchange Framework. Maintaining and improving mechanisms for exchanging best practices and lessons learned, is essential to ensure a coordinated and harmonized deployment of CCAM in Europe. This presentation will provide an overview of the latest findings and discuss the next steps.
