Víctor Jiménez, project’s technical coordinator and researcher at the IT&OT Security Unit of Eurecat, participated in the Trilateral Europe-US-Japan Working Group on Automation in Road Transportation which took place virtually on November 7th.

The session was organised with the objective to promote and improve the international cooperation between these three regions regarding the main issues, challenges and trends related to Cooperative Connected Automated Mobility (CCAM).

During the event, Víctor Jiménez introduced SELFY as a key European project addressing continuous assessments of the robustness and resilience of CCAM-enabled mobility solutions versus cyber-attacks, malfunction, misuse or system failure of the systems in use. The presentation included a general overview about the project, the toolbox to be developed, the use case scenarios and the expected outcomes of the project.

This group is a cooperation between the European Commission, the US Department of Transportation and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan, and has the mission to allow each region and country to learn from one another’s programs, identify areas of cooperation where each region will benefit from coordinated research activities, and engage in cooperative research and harmonisation activities.
