Declaration of Amsterdam

The participants in the i-GAME project – TNO, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Viktoria of Sweden and IDIADA of Spain – are working together to accelerate the development of cooperative and autonomous driving and the standardization of communication systems and channels. On 14 April the transport ministers of the 28 EU member states reached agreement on the ‘Declaration of Amsterdam’, dealing with the required steps and rules for the development of self-driving technology in Europe. GCDC 2016 is part of an integrated plan to strengthen the position of the Brainport region and the Netherlands in the field of cooperative automated driving. Brainport is one of Europe’s most prominent and innovative high-tech centers.
