Project description

A national framework for rolling out marketable autonomous mobility services by 2022.

The project was launched in June 2019 for an initial period of 3 years and is driven by the PFA (Automotive Platform). The SAM project is a national project for large-scale experiments in autonomous driving and mobility on open roads. The two-fold challenge is:

  • to develop the use and knowledge of these systems by citizens and local stakeholders
  • to build the future regulatory framework, especially in terms of security validation by 2022.

The project is rooted in a common methodological approach and has three target application areas: individual mobility, shared or collective mobility and logistics.

In 2021, the project was extended by 18 months (until the end of 2023).

IRT SystemX is piloting lot 2 “Security demonstration methodology”.

Expected results

Draw up a common good, as defined by a set of knowledge,  including pooling and sharing with public authorities, that contributes to the development of public policies and the establishment of a state of the art, namely in terms of safety, impacts and acceptability.
