The automated vehicle deployment will be a long and critical process due to the complexity of terrestrial environment, evolving weather conditions and the long cohabitation with human driven vehicles. The automated vehicle will be also requiring a strong energetic transition which will be leading to the deployment of new energetic supply such electrical provisioning and hydrogen provisioning with its capability to collect the required energy, automatically when needed. The road environment complexity and the energetic transition will then require an intelligent development of the necessary road infrastructure for supporting the automated vehicle deployment. This will be parallel deployment processes which need to be coordinated.
