TIN news:             The political and user challenges of vehicle connectivity was the main focus of the IRU’s contribution to discussions at the CLEPA Aftermarket Conference 2014 that examined the implications of connected vehicles. IRU General Delegate to the EU, Michael Nielsen, pointed out that the road transport industry welcomes any innovation that leads to more sustainable and safe operations in a cost efficient way, but that many existing possibilities to improve efficiency in road transport should also be explored to the full, such as maximising improvements from aerodynamics and increasing loading capacities.
 
Michael Nielsen also stressed that road transport operators must be offered a wide range of service providers when selecting services, and must have access to and retain ownership of data generated from their systems and operations. Finally, he recalled that the road transport sector should be involved in initiatives from the outset to ensure a concerted effort and the rapid deployment of new innovative ITS and connected services.
