Transport Canada providing $2.9M to help to prepare Canada for connected and automated vehicles; $500K to U of Alberta

Transport Canada is providing $2.9M in funding under the program to Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System in order to help Canadian jurisdictions prepare for connected and automated vehicles.

In particular, Transport Canada funding will support research, studies, and technology demonstrations across Canada. Results will help address technical, policy and regulatory issues related to connected and automated vehicles. Findings will be shared extensively to encourage further innovation across Canada.

In support of this program, Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, on behalf of Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, announced $500,000 in funding to the University of Alberta for its project to pilot the enhanced privacy of connected vehicle communications.

Transport Canada is working with international governments through the United Nations to develop guidelines and regulatory requirements that facilitate innovation and aid in the safe deployment of automated features.



A mere $2.9M for vehicle electrification and $4,500,000,000 for the Trans-Mountain pipeline?

What a way to fight pollution and GHG?
