Evaluation of previous and planned vehicle deployments
Possible and already implemented areas of application for autonomous, electrically powered public vehicles will be systematically compiled for the first time based on literature and internet analysis.
Success factors and barriers to use
The requirements and basic conditions that lead to a successful use are derived for different area types. This includes expert interviews and the simulation of autonomous vehicle fleets in interaction with the existing public transport system.
Preparation of guidelines
The recommendations for action derived from the project work are intended to support researchers and practitioners from municipalities, transport associations and companies with regard to the introduction of autonomous and electrically powered (small) buses in live operation.
