Network Automated Driving Regulations

International and EU regulations for automated driving are in the middle of a jump. There will be extensive regulatory activities during the project period 2023 - 2025.

Therefore, it is a perfect opportunity for the proposed project to both get first-hand information and to try to influence the international regulatory framework for automated vehicles. Due to the ambiguity in how driverless vehicles should comply with the current traffic rules and new regulations around automated vehicles, there is a need to form a forum to study and discuss issues that arise.

The purpose of the project is not only to support companies to move forward in this highly competitive arena but also to offer the authorities valuable insights into how the industry reasons and interprets the rules. Quarterly roundtable discussions with a broad group of partners offer a neutral forum to enable dialogue between the industry and the authorities and to encourage the exchange of experience and knowledge.

Together with extensive work by the legal experts, the project aims to:

  • bring clarity to issues related to the interpretation of current and upcoming regulations
  • monitor upcoming and new international initiatives and regulations
  • proactively influence international and Swedish legislation
  • prepare for infrastructure adaptation.
