Successful Joint CoEXist / MAVEN / TransAID workshop followed by the 2nd CoEXist consortium meeting


The joint workshop was held on 10 October and the 2nd consortium meeting on 11-12 October in Brussels, Belgium

On 10 October, <link https: _blank>Polis network hosted a joint workshop between the three European projects: <link https:>CoEXist, <link http: _blank>MAVEN and <link https: inea en horizon-2020 projects h2020-transport road transaid _blank>TransAID, on the implications of vehicle automation on urban roads. The three H2020 projects consider the traffic management and infrastructure aspects of automated vehicles while CoEXist is also exploring the transport planning and policy dimensions.Over 50 people participated both from local authorities and other urban transport stakeholders giving valuable feedback to the three projects.After a brief introduction about the three projects and a speech given by professor Bart van Arem from Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) on the pros and cons of automated vehicles in our cities, participants were split into three parallel groups sessions each of them with a specific sub-topic to discuss in detail the projects’ future tasks and activities. It was also the occasion for the CoEXist project to introduce the so-called Automation-ready framework for local authorities in order to set a baseline to help cities get prepared in terms of polices infrastructure toward the arrival of automated vehicles.The Workshop preceded the CoEXist consortium meeting, which took place on 11 and 12 October and where all the partners and advisory board members discussed in the presence of the European Agency INEA how the project has developed so far and which are the next steps and planned activities
