The aim in transport policy is that a part of transport systems be automated. This offers significant possibilities for improving the safety, efficiency and sustainability of traffic and transportation.
The Ministry also promotes business operations based on transport automation by providing support for automation experiments.
Intelligent automation, and its increase, or automatisation, refer to modern robotics where a device or a system is capable of increasingly autonomous action, perception, learning and decision-making through artificial intelligence, sensors and the Internet of Things combined with software.
Transport automatisation is based on the advancement of communications and vehicle technologies. Information also plays a key role; transport information together with the transport and communications infrastructure form a platform for transport automatisation.
