September 29th-30th EU EIP Roadmap for Automated Driving – Road Operators Perspective Traficom Helsinki (FI) or online event (TBD)

The EU EIP project considers these kind of questions from the point of view of road authorities and operators and is setting up a roadmap document. Other initiatives are asking these questions as well; this is a continuous effort since the field of automation is constantly evolving. Our work, and this event, will focus on the actions to be carried out by road authorities and operators to facilitate automated driving, especially during the next 10 years. The actions focus especially in the adaptations in physical and digital road infrastructures, and aiming for optimal benefit/cost of the actions. Visit the page.
November 25th DATEX II Forum at the heart of connectivity Web events
Paris (FR)

COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. It impacts our private and work life in an unprecedented way. No one can tell at the moment how things will evolve and what restrictions for conventions, traveling and social distancing will stay in place until when. This uncertainty affects of course also the set-up of this year’s DATEX II Forum. As our main goal for the Forum has always been to bring the DATEX II community together to exchange experiences, we prefer to organize a physical Forum in Paris. However, your health and safety must come first.
Therefore we decided to organize the 6th DATEX II Forum in a different way:
   - A serie of webinars starting on the 25th of November
   - A physical Forum on 9/10 June 2021 in Paris
This enables us to share with you the tremendous progress and interesting new capabilities of DATEX II already this year and to bring together the DATEX II community in the first half of next year. Visit the page.
