Automated public transport

Planning, implementation and exploitation of autonomous shuttle transport

Automated driving is the future. It is going to change transport, traffic, our cities and our environment. It will change the way we live. But there are also hurdles and questions. It seems a confusing mix of innovation and application.

A group of experienced professionals in diverse segments of automated shuttle systems have worked together in several implementation projects over the last 4 years. They have now condensed their experiences and knowledge gained into a comprehensive 2 days training program to cover all aspects of automated shuttle transport: planning, implementation and operation.

You learn everything you need to know about automated shuttle systems to come to well considered plans and decisions. You get to know which tools you can use for evaluation of automated driving shuttles and their use in practical cases.

Is automated public transport feasible in my city, village or business park?

In this course, the following questions are treated:

  • What does automated driving mean for my community?
  • What are the experiences so far?
  • What is possible today?
  • Why isn’t automated driving here already?
  • How long does it take?
  • Should we plan for this now? And how?
     

Intended for
This course is meant for planners and decision makers in public and private organisations, who want to know if, how and when to incorporate automated shuttle systems in their development plans. Urban planners, facility managers (of e.g. hospitals, (air)ports, business parks, campuses), mobility managers, public transport operators, transport strategists, politicians and all others who are professionally interested in automated shuttle systems.
