Employment effects of connected and automated driving (CAD)

Dr. Christian Scherf, Marcel Streif

Following the invitation of the SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences , results of the CAD project were presented. In passenger transport, employment is declining, but job losses are partially compensated by new occupations. In freight transport, the decline is even greater due to automated vehicles. In both areas, significant employment declines among drivers are expected, while other jobs are less affected and have a stabilizing effect.
