Map testing of autonomous vehicles


CARLA has been developed from the ground up to support development, training, and validation of autonomous driving systems. In addition to open-source code and protocols, CARLA provides open digital assets (urban layouts, buildings, vehicles) that were created for this purpose and can be used freely. The simulation platform supports flexible specification of sensor suites, environmental conditions, full control of all static and dynamic actors, maps generation and much more.


ERTRAC is the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council. It is the European technology platform which brings together road transport stakeholders to develop a common vision for road transport research in Europe

The IEEE Global Initiative’s mission is, “To ensure every stakeholder involved in the design and development of autonomous and intelligent systems is educated, trained, and empowered to prioritize ethical considerations so that these technologies are advanced for the benefit of humanity.”


The EUCAR project book contains an overview of all the current research and innovation projects in our priority fields for ‘Safe and integrated mobility’, ‘Sustainable propulsion’, ‘Affordability and competitiveness’ and ‘Commercial vehicles’.


This report defines good practices for security of smart cars, namely connected and (semi-) autonomous vehicles, providing added-value features in order to enhance car users’ experience and improve car safety. Taking stock of all existing standardization, legislative and policy initiatives, this report aims to serve as a reference point to promote cybersecurity for smart cars (connected and automated cars) across Europe and raise awareness on relevant threats and risks with a focus on “cybersecurity for safety”.

This report examines the emerging regulatory and policy landscape surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) in jurisdictions around the world and in the European Union. […] the most advanced regulations were found in the area of autonomous vehicles, in particular for the testing of such vehicles. (Particulary: Europe and Central Asia)

It’s essential that all parties involved in the manufacturing supply chain, from designers and engineers, to retailers and senior level executives, are provided with a consistent set of guidelines that support this global industry. The Department for Transport, in conjunction with Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), have created the following key principles for use throughout the automotive sector, the CAV and ITS ecosystems and their supply chains.

In recent years, private and government testing of autonomous vehicles has increased significantly, although it is likely that widespread use of fully autonomous vehicles—where no driver attention is needed—may be many years in the future. The pace of autonomous vehicle commercialization may have slowed due to the 2018 death in Arizona of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle, which highlighted the challenges of duplicating human decisionmaking by artificial intelligence. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the fatality was caused by an “inadequate safety culture” at Uber— which was testing the vehicle—and deficiencies in state and federal regulation.


Mobileye, an Intel company, was launched in 1999 with the belief that vision-safety technology will make our roads safer, reduce traffic congestion and save lives. With a cutting edge team of more than 1,700 employees, Mobileye has developed a range of software products that is deployed on a proprietary family of computer chips named EyeQ®


The CAD initiative supports the development of clearer and more consistent policies on connected and automated driving in EU Member States. CAD captures the expectations and concerns of users, public authorities and providers of technology, infrastructure or mobility services. We foster public-private collaboration and we support the alignment of national action plans, European and international activities in the field of automated driving, towards development and deployment of AR
