Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility

CCAMEU—Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility: EU and Australasian Innovations

The Jean Monnet Network on “Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility: EU and Australasian Innovations” brought together a consortium of universities across Australia, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Japan, and New Zealand to investigate the impacts of cooperative, connected and automated mobilities (CCAM), also known as connected cars or self-driving vehicles.

Within the project, the Mobility Lab, University of Tartu, conducted research on human mobility, travel behaviour, and related socio-spatial inequalities by using mobile big data, and on the perspectives of novel mobility solutions to reduce mobility-related inequalities. The lab also arranged a CCAMEU session at the biennial Mobile Tartu conference (2020) and a public lecture series on Transport Planning for Human-Scale Cities (2022).
