Program to Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System

The application process for 2018-19 funding is currently closed.

Connected and automated vehicles are a new innovation in road transportation. They use technology and new sources of data to provide warnings and assist with driving tasks. This technology may include:

  • on-board sensors
  • cameras
  • global positioning systems
  • telecommunications
  • smart infrastructure

The Program to Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System (ACATS) is helping to prepare Canada for the wider use of connected and automated vehicles on our roads. To do so, the program supports:

  • research, studies and technology evaluations
  • the development of codes, standards and guidance materials
  • capacity-building and knowledge-sharing activities
