H2020RTR20 Conference - PAsCAL & FriendsNews post
The process of developing mobility in the coming years has long since taken the path that leads to the ever-widen spread of cars led by artificial intelligence. A shift that, however, in order to achieve the status of an effective improvement in living conditions for each, must first go through the most complete and possible widespread acceptance by the public globally.
To achieve this, Europe has in recent years put in place a series of projects that share the same common purpose: to speed…
