The European Union (EU) transport ministers have signed the so called Amsterdam Declaration during an informal meeting of the Transport Council on April 14 in Amsterdam. It aims to make autonomous driving a reality across the 28 EU Member States.
It lays down agreements on the steps necessary for the development of self-driving technology in the EU. In this document the Netherlands, the European Commission, EU member states and the transport industry pledge to draw up rules and regulations that will allow autonomous vehicles to be used on the roads.
