Innovation made in Karlsruhe showcased in Barcelona
Joint stand of the Karlsruhe Mobility Lab at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit
Autonomous driving, platooning and state-of-the-art software solutions
The FZI Research Center for Information Technology will be in Barcelona to bring the technologies behind its autonomous FZI shuttles to life: In a demonstrator, FZI experts can interactively simulate cockpits as well as control centre views and provide unique insights into the infrastructure as well as the communication capacity of various technical systems. The Institute for Information Processing Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will present its project on city bus platooning. Platooning enables vehicles to automatically follow the lane of a lead vehicle at a short distance. Thanks to this technology, operations can be adapted to passenger numbers, become more automated and thus more economical.
PTV Group presents innovative software solutions that enable transport companies to virtually test different scenarios to make existing infrastructures more attractive, or to improve their demand and operations planning. Under the name "Omnimover", TransportTechnologie-Consult Karlsruhe GmbH (TTK), a consultancy for sustainable mobility, will present a feasibility study for an innovative mobility system with on-demand functions that goes the extra mile. The DAKIMO project of Profilregion Mobilitätssysteme Karlsruhe aims at making sustainable and intermodal mobility more attractive and seamless with by means of AI methods. The LogIKTram project, meanwhile, focuses on innovations for combined passenger and freight transport, and will be bringing its LogIKTram to Barcelona.
With regards to the Karlsruhe Mobility Lab, other partners of the hub, AVG - Albtal-Transport Company, the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI, INIT GmbH, the KVV – Karlsruhe Transport Network (KVV), City of Karlsruhe, the UITP Regional Training Centre Karlsruhe, VBK – Karlsruhe Transport Company, Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion, and Messe Karlsruhe, will also present on the joint stand.
