    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionProfessional


    Road transport is facing several changes that derive from the operational environment. Technological
    progress supporting advances in automated driving is one of these. Alongside e.g. globalisation,
    urbanisation, aging, climate change and digitalisation are challenging the transport needs and solutions
    of today. This paper discusses how automated driving is related to the factors of change. Based on the
    analysis, the progress towards more automated driving is supporting and is supported by the changes
    deriving from the key megatrends even though also some conflicting issues are recognised.
