LEVITATE 2nd Stakeholder Reference Group Workshop takes place in Brussels

The LEVITATE Stakeholder Reference Group met for the second time for a workshop on 26 November in Brussels. Some 35 people from across Europe, including many representatives of local and regional government, took part. The workshop provided an overview of the mechanics of the developing Policy Support Tool, which will be one of the main outputs of the project and is being established to enable policy makers and planners to run their own assessment of the potential impact of connected and automated transport systems in their city or region and across several transport policy domains. Valuable insights were collected on how to further develop this tool.

The LEVITATE project develops methods to forecast societal level impacts of connected and automated transport (CATs). This includes the impact of CATs on safety, the environment, the economy and society.

Launched in December 2018, LEVITATE is a 3-year project led by Loughborough University whose main output will be a policy support tool (PST) to help local authorities forecast the impacts of automated vehicles over the short, medium and long-term. The PST will also contain a back-casting tool providing guidance to local authorities on the measures to implement to achieve desired outcomes against a backdrop of increasing vehicle automation.

LEVITATE has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824361.
