To mark the second European conference on connected and automated driving, Horizon catches up with some of the latest developments in the area. We find out how cars could soon detect if the driver is incapacitated and take back control, discover why we need new road infrastructure to ease our transition to automated transport and hear about the challenges in preparing different automated car models to mix on Europe’s roads.
