Clara de la Torre, Director DG Research & Innovation, European Commission and Jacob Bangsgaard, CEO Ertico welcomed the guests and L3Pilot caught a lot of attention during the VIP Tour.

On the second conference day, Aria Etemad, Volkswagen AG, discussed key aspects related to large-scale testing of Automated Driving in Europe in a session providing insights from L3Pilot and the experiences of the project partners regarding data handling and user perspective.
