Torsdag 24. september 2015 kl: 09:06
Thursday, the Federal Minister of Transport in Germany, Alexander Dobrindt, presents his "Strategy for Automated and Connected Driving", which has been adopted by the Federal Cabinet. Alexander Dobrindt receives ministers of transport from the G7 countries at the IAAInternational Motor Show in Frankfurt a. M.
- Germany has developed a comprehensive strategy for automated and connected driving. We are taking all the relevant action areas into account to put automated and connected driving onto the roads - from legislation through infrastructure to data protection. We want to digitally roll forward our success story in the automotive sector and exploit the opportunities for growth and prosperity inherent in Mobility 4.0. My objective is for Germany to become a lead provider of automated and connected vehicles and a lead market, says Alexander Dobrindt.
The "Strategy for Automated and Connected Driving" provides for a wide range of measures in five action areas.
- Infrastructure: the deployment of a high-performance mobile broadband network providing universal coverage will make it possible to connect vehicles with one another and with the infrastructure in real time.
- Legislation: a regulatory framework will be created within which, in the future, an automated and connected vehicle can perform driving tasks independently without the driver having to permanently monitor the vehicle.
- Innovation: to trial innovations in real-life situations, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure joined forces with the automotive industry and the digital technology sector to construct the "Digital Motorway Test Bed" on the A9 motorway in Bavaria. All the parties involved have already mapped out the future course by adopting a charter of innovation.
- Cyber security: in collaboration with the industry and academia, we will develop cyber security standards for vehicles to prevent hacking. These standards are to be evolved into regulations that are mandatory worldwide.
- Data protection: drivers of automated and connected vehicles must be informed about the collection and processing of data - and give their consent. The data belong to the user.
- Automated and connected driving will increase road safety, significantly improve the flow of traffic and enhance capacity. The pressure on drivers and the environment will be relieved, added value will be generated and new jobs will be created, says Alexander Dobrindt.
The Minister will also present the "Strategy for Automated and Connected Driving" to his counterparts from the G7 countries. Following an invitation from Alexander Dobrindt, the transport ministers from France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, Canada and the US will arrive in Frankfurt am Main on Wednesday evening to attend the meeting of G7 transport ministers.
The transport ministers will join leading industry representatives at the IAAInternational Motor Show to discuss how automated and connected driving can be progressed throughout the world. Another issue will be infrastructure financing.
