It is only a matter of time before autonomous vehicles – trams, trains, buses, and cars – will be integrated into the systems of public transport. Driverless vehicles pave the way for additional services and make public transport more attractive. They have the potential to reduce accidents and ease congestion. The European Commission estimates the market potential of automated driving to be worth dozens of billions of euros annually, creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs. They have the potential to answer the question of the “first and last mile”.
The IT-TRANS Exhibition offers the opportunity to discuss the options, test driverless vehicles and find answers to the technological challenges involved.
