Creating an Intelligent Car and Road Lead Market in Europe
Lead-markets are regional markets (most often countries), which utilize a certain innovation design earlier than other countries and which do have specific properties (lead market factors) which increase the probability that other countries will adopt to the same innovation design, too.
The creation of an innovation-friendly European lead market in the area of Transport and more specifically on Intelligent Cars and Roads will contribute to increase the competitiveness of the European industry. It is important to identify the necessary research agenda and address the deployment barriers for innovative products and services in this field.
The research agenda focus on cooperative systems based on vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communications and large-scale pan European demonstrations to validate and test the results of research. The deployment barriers are insufficient public sector investment in innovative products and services, lack of European common specifications of Systems and Services as well as issues related to privacy of personal data and liability.
In order to promote such a lead market, the purpose of this study is to identify and detail additional initiatives needed and identify deployment barriers as well as the necessary public policy measures, supported by statistical data and market indicators.
