Connected & Automated Vehicles Integrated Committee

Overview

This committee supports the Technology Council. It is a centre of expertise within TAC and a national forum for information exchange and problem solving related to connected vehicles (CVs) and automated vehicles (AVs), with a focus on issues related to transportation system planning, design, operations, safety, cybersecurity and environmental sustainability in urban and rural communities. Its broad goals include:

  • Monitoring the international development, testing and implementation of CV and AV technologies, and understanding possible implications for Canada’s transportation sector
  • Identifying emerging opportunities and challenges related to CVs and AVs in Canada, and raising awareness of them within TAC’s councils, committees and general membership
  • Sharing information and promoting collaboration on activities of TAC councils and committees related to CVs and AVs, through the active participation of members and direct communication between executives

A key purpose of the Committee is to enable the coordinated pursuit by TAC councils and committees of shared or complementary outcomes related to connected and automated vehicles.

The Committee meets during TAC’s Spring and Fall Technical Meetings, and holds additional online meetings as needed. Meetings are open to all employees of TAC member organizations, individual TAC members, and others at the discretion of the Chair. For more information on the Committee, see its Terms of Reference or contact Yuriy Shelkovyy.
