We are concerned about the future of mobility and autonomous driving. Autonomy is an essential element towards enabling safer traffic, fewer deaths and increased convenience. We fear that current and future regulations (such as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/57 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/10) will cripple these developments and limit access to Europeans who could benefit from these technologies.
We expect lawmakers to embrace rather than regulate these new technologies and create the right environments for these new developments to thrive. Europe should be setting an example on automotive innovations not stifling them.
