HEADSTART (Harmonised European Solutions for Testing Automated Road Transport) is a new European initiative that aims to define testing and validation procedures on specific functionalities of Connected and Automated Driving (CAD). HEADSTART will select a technology-agnostic methodology and follow an integrated approach for analyzing the impact of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for CAD.

HEADSTART is organising its first Workshop on requirements for Key Enabling Technologies testing and validation on 13 September 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.  The purpose of the workshop is to define relevant use cases for KETs and consult with stakeholders from the industry, research and standardization bodies to:

  • identify potential approaches for CAD functions assessment from cyber-security, communication (V2X) and positioning viewpoints, and KETs integration into CAD scenario tooling;
  • learn about procedures successfully used in other domains or projects

The workshop will provide an opportunity to understand and provide feedback on the project proposed approaches and preliminary results, but also to guide the next stages of the project and get actively involved throughout. Indeed HEADSTART will establish an Expert Network with whom to engage for input and consultation on the project progress to advance CAD test methods, procedures and tools.

The workshop is free of charge. Registration details will shortly follow.
