Abstract

THE IMPLEMENTATION OF AUTOMATED ROAD TRANSPORT WHAT ARE THE IMPEDING AND PROMOTING FACTORS ON A MULTILEVEL-PERSPECTIVE FOR AUTHORITIES?

This challenge aims to point out which factors affected the implementation of Automated Road Transport (ART). The vertical multilevel approach (macro, meso, micro) helps the authorities to understand the preconditions on an integrative way. The participants give the results an international view and can discuss the related innovations for ART.
