Video Conference Berlin – Barcelona
Autonomous and connected driving is one of the most important trends and, at the same time, one of the greatest challenges for the future of mobility. It involves technical, economic, and legal issues that have a major influence on the steps and the speed at which autonomous driving will become established in real world traffic. With spatially and temporally limited "sandboxes", cities and regions are working together with industry and science to collect important findings with autonomous transport.
Initiating exchanges of experiences
The digital event is intended to initiate exchanges of experience between the metropolitan regions of Berlin and Barcelona regarding current projects in autonomous and connected driving. At the same time, the legal aspects of this topic will be examined in greater depth. The ultimate goal is to stimulate cooperation between companies and institutes in both regions - e.g. within the framework of European pilot projects. A follow-up event later in 2021 in Berlin or in Barcelona will help to further develop this process.
