New project FAME wants to realise the potential of automated mobility for safer, more sustainable cities

Connected and automated systems

..can fundamentally advance our transport systems

Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) has the potential to make transport safer (by reducing the number of road fatalities and accidents), greener (by helping to reduce harmful emissions from transport by smoothening traffic flow and avoiding unnecessary trips) and more accessible (by ensuring inclusive mobility access for all).

Besides technological progress, there are further challenges and uncertainties related to the development of CCAM regarding societal, economic, operational and regulatory aspects. To overcome these challenges, an integrated and harmonised approach is very much needed.

FAME is...

a new Framework for coordination of Automated Mobility in Europe

In summer 2022, the new project FAME kicked off to achieve exactly that: an integrated and harmonised approach for CCAM, to accelerate its development and deployment in Europe.

Over the course of three years, FAME’s mission will be to establish a European framework for testing automated vehicles on public roads, enable evaluations with a common methodology, engage an active community of stakeholders and capitalise on shared knowledge. FAME wants to improve cooperation, consensus building and data sharing for CCAM testing and large-scale demonstration activities in Europe.

Coordinated by ERTICO, FAME gathers 23 consortium partners from 12 EU Member States.

The CCAM world presents a series of stakeholders who cannot work in silos, but more than ever need to cooperate towards a shared vision, common goals, methodologies and governance models, beyond sectorial barriers. That is exactly where FAME comes in.

Building on the legacy of other EU initiatives on CCAM

The FAME project will intensely cooperate with other EU initiatives on CCAM, many of which UITP engages in.

Besides building on the legacy of previous EU projects such as ARCADE, FAME seeks to directly support the work of the European CCAM Partnership for the identification of gaps and future needs for R&I in CCAM. UITP is a proud member of this partnership, in which we co-lead the Cluster “Large scale demonstrations”, aiming to test and demonstrate the benefits and impacts of CCAM.

As FAME partner, UITP will also ensure knowledge exchange and cross fertilisation with its other initiatives on automated mobility, including with SHOW: the 70-partner strong project seeing real-life urban demonstrations taking place in 20 cities across Europe.

After a series of pre-trials, SHOW has since this spring entered exciting times, with many of the city demos having officially started. Early October the demo in Brno (Czech Republic) kicked off during the Urban Mobility Week, putting sustainability at the heart of the urban mobility debate.

Stay tuned with SHOW’s latest activities on the project website!
