The objective of the project CyberCar is to bring all the European actors of this field together in order to test and exchange best practices, share some of the development work and progress faster in the experiments. Several cities throughout Europe have already accepted to participate in the project and will study with the partners of the project the potentiality to run such systems and give their specific constraints. A major part of the work carried during the project, will be the development and test of several key technologies for the enhancement of the existing systems. These technologies concern better guidance, better collision avoidance, better energy management, better fleet management and the development of simple and standard user interfaces. Cooperative work is also needed at the European level in order to reach a consensus on the certification techniques of these systems which are now developed in a very imprecise regulatory framework.
