Self-driving vehicles: Europe is losing the race against the USA and China, claims EPP report

Europe is lagging behind other nations in the race to bring self-driving cars to roads claims a new report by the European Parliament, which calls for the EU to increase efforts to support, develop and regulate self-driving vehicles.

The report, by the EPP Group’s Wim van de Camp, calls for more support from programs like Horizon Europe, more interoperability among those vehicles, and regulation of their use.

“We are on a good track but China, United States, and even South Korea is ahead of us so over the next few years we have to be in a hurry to improve our cooperation between the Member States, the companies who produce the cars, and the innovation institutes,” said van de Camp.
