All-Party Parliamentary Group on Connected and Automated Mobility

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) is a cross-party group of MPs and Peers that provides a forum for parliamentarians, industry leaders and academia to discuss how to promote and support self-driving technologies’ safe and effective deployment across the UK.

About

The CAM APPG has been established with support from AXA UK and Burges Salmon to ensure that the UK continues the pioneering work of industry and Government in researching and developing connected and automated mobility.

The Group will bring together industry, academia, tech experts and policymakers to identify and promote the next steps towards ensuring the UK is a world leader in CAM and securing the safe deployment of the technology on UK roads. Key areas of focus for the APPG will include investment, regulation, consumer education, data and cyber security.
