We want to ensure mobility for everyone, automated driving, e-mobility, shared mobility. We need a mobility ecosystem and seamless mobility,” Christian von Albrichsfeld, Head of Country, Continental Romania said during Smart Transformation Forum organized by The Diplomat-Bucharest.
“We want the authorities to provide us with a legislative framework for the introduction of autonomous vehicles on public roads.
Education is very important, we need skills regarding digitization, software development, artificial intelligence, big data, cloud management, cybersecurity, microelectronics.
The government must support an educational project to train the specialists we need. Romania must have a long-term vision and set goals for 15-20 years to fulfil to be competitive.
We must support the emergence of living labs to test the new technologies that appear on the market.”
