Autonomous Vehicle Leaders to Launch New Industry Body, PAVE

EasyMile and other leaders in automated vehicle technology are joining forces in a call for founding members to join them launching Partners for Automated Vehicle Education (PAVE) Europe, a sister organization to PAVE North America and coalition dedicated to advancing public education on autonomous vehicle (AV) technology and its benefits.

At the IAA Mobility conference in Munich, the group welcomed a wide range of industry, nonprofit and academic leaders to help establish PAVE Europe, with the goal of formally launching by early 2022.

The foundation of PAVE Europe is being guided by the University of St. Gallen’s Institute for Mobility and Neckermann Strategic Advisors.

PAVE Europe will work with its North American counterpart on a united goal: to inform the public about automated vehicles and their potential so everyone can fully participate in shaping the future of transportation.

PAVE Chairman Brad Stertz, also serves as director of government affairs of Audi.

PAVE Chairman, Brad Stertz, said:

PAVE stands for a united belief that the potential of automated driving is best achieved when the public square understands facts surrounding this transformational technology. Given the incredible momentum of AV development in Europe, as well as the European Commission’s dedication to promoting and facilitating progress in this field, we are excited to team with European leaders in AV technology to launch a hype-free public dialogue.

The PAVE mission began in 2019 when a range of innovators and stakeholders in the future mobility field committed their resources to fill a gap in fact-based public understanding and education surrounding self-driving vehicles. PAVE membership includes over 80 members including global automakers, major insurers, technology giants and nonprofit organizations.

Lukas Neckermann, Managing Director of Neckermann Strategic Advisors, noted:

Our research has shown that a key hurdle still remains with respect to the adoption of autonomous technology: understanding. We are thrilled to have already gathered key industry players as founding members of PAVE Europe, and look forward to a formal launch of this organization that will drive public discourse on autonomous technology across Europe.

EasyMile, Mobileye and TÜV Rheinland are among the European companies leading the call for other founders in the creation of PAVE Europe. The foundation of PAVE Europe is being guided by the University of St. Gallen’s Institute for Mobility and Neckermann Strategic Advisors.
