Prime Minister Sipilä's Government Programme outlines open-minded utilisation of digitalisation in the entire society as a key to improving Finland's competitiveness. Digitalisation is also changing the mobility of people and goods in many ways, including the related business models.

This development is reflected in the increase of intelligent automation in transport, in other words automatisation. It offers opportunities to improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of transport and goods services.

This first draft plan describes applications and opportunities in intelligent automation in transport and the prerequisites for further development of automation. The plan identifies measures that can improve Finland's capabilities and possibilities as automation makes headway.
