Automated Vehicles and Infrastructure Enablers:
Highly automated vehicles are being developed alongside a variety of novel,
disruptive technologies and a global focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions
from transportation. ADS can reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency for
vehicles powered by traditional internal combustion engines. Electric motors can
further raise the bar for both those areas, especially if the power used to
charge an electric vehicle is generated from renewable sources. However,
implementing electrified AVs requires a viable charging infrastructure.
Automated Vehicles and Infrastructure Enablers: Electrification
covers issues concerning infrastructure and the electrification of all forms of
vehicles: heavy-duty vehicles like trucks and buses, light-duty vehicles like
cars and vans, micro-mobility, and new form factors.
