Connected and automated transport (CAT) is an important area of digital technology that promises a number of benefits for the individual, society and economy in the European transport sector.

In 2017, a roadmap for CAT was developed for the various transport modes within the Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA). It was the result of a European Commission initiative to jointly develop a research and innovation roadmap for CAT with the involvement of representatives of the EU Member States and stakeholders from industry, academia and authorities.

This revised roadmap (2019) for CAT builds on the 2017 roadmap and further develops the research and innovation strategy.
