5G Automotive Association (5GAA) has become an Associate Partner of the  Aligning Research & Innovation for Connected and Automated Driving in Europe (ARCADE) funded by the European Commission (EC).

The project aims at building consensus to enable smooth deployment of connected and automated driving (CAD) on European roads and beyond.

"5GAA will use the collective expertise of the association to participate and contribute knowledge at both European and international level," said a 5GAA statement. "5GAA look forward to exchanging views and experiences with the wide range of other expert groups and stakeholders involved as partners of the project."

The ARCADE project will run for three years and aims to establish a joint forum to coordinate and harmonise automated road transport approaches at both the European and the international level (in particular with the US and Japan).

Towards that objective, ARCADE will organise the Second European CAD conference in April this year in Brussels, in which 5GAA will be actively involved.

5GAA members BMW Group, Bosch and Volvo Cars are among the principal partners already involved in the project funded through the Research and Innovation Framework Programme of the European Commission.
