COVID-19: Impact on European type-approval regulations
For suppliers and automakers working with autonomous technology, regulatory developments can have significant impact on planning and deployment—especially type approval requirements that impact an entire market.
Regulation is a strong market force throughout the automotive industry, and the autonomy sector is no different. In fact, given the central role of safety in the autonomy sector (from basic driver assistance to automated driving to autonomous mobility), regulations play a particularly critical role in shaping the future of this segment of the market. That impact is expected to be increasingly profound over time, and Europe is poised to experience this sooner and in greater force than any other market.
