The HEADSTART (Harmonised European Solutions for Testing Automated Road Transport) project is an EU funded project which started on the 1st of January of 2019 and will last for 3 years. The project consisted of 17 partners and aims to define testing and validation procedures of Connected and Automated Driving functions including key technologies such as communications, cyber-security, and positioning. The tests will be in both simulation and real-world fields to validate safety and security performance according to the key users’ needs.

Topics to be discussed


The workshop will include presentations as well as an interactive discussion with all participants. The main topics to be discussed are the following:

  • Assessment of CAD functions: Initiatives, projects and state of the art;
  • The HEADSTART methodology in a nutshell: harmonisation and progress;
  • How do we integrate communications, positioning, and cybersecurity in a comprehensive assessment methodology;
  • From Methodology to Procedures: From “what” to “how” to do CAD validation;
  • The HEADSTART use cases: how to validate a methodology;
  • The future of HEADSTART: an overview of our next activities and ways to get involved;
