Abstract

Exploring the forefront of innovation strategies and research trends, the future of connected, cooperative, and automated mobility (CCAM) in Europe promises to revolutionize the transportation landscape, paving the way for sustainable, efficient, and inclusive transportation systems [1]. Therefore, this chapter discusses the challenges and solutions for the deployment of CCAM technologies in Europe related in particular to coordination and cross sector stakeholder engagement. Despite the technical advancements and numerous Research and Innovation (R&I) and testing activities, multiple barriers remain, such as limited demand, lack of technical maturity, scattered research efforts, and inadequate demonstration and scale-up. The CCAM Partnership plays a crucial role in overcoming these obstacles by creating a unified, long-term R&I agenda. Under the umbrella of the CCAM Partnership 18 projects have been funded so far. The project objectives and thematic assignments corresponding to R&I priorities identified by the Partnership, are described in this paper. Furthermore, the role of the FAME project supporting the European CCAM ecosystem by fostering knowledge exchange, best practices, and international collaboration is highlighted. Finally, the CCAM ecosystem with respect to the R&I projects will be discussed.
