Collaborative self-driving transport - part of tomorrow's cityscape

24 May 2023
robot och självkörande buss

At a well-attended breakfast seminar, partners summarized their insights on how a self-driving bus and delivery robot can work together in an urban environment. In addition, a live demonstration was offered.

With 18 collaborating partners from universities, property owners, software and product developers and actors within urban development, there is a wide range of expertise. With ambitious collaboration over several years, areas such as vehicle technology, transport efficiency, user perspective, business models and urban development potential have been carefully investigated.

The Chalmers area has been test arena, a unique opportunity to test things that you cannot normally do in a district. The collaboration has increased each other's knowledge of what we need to change (behaviour, legislation, technology, etc.), but also what we need to investigate further in order to handle that more and more of our transport is handled by autonomous vehicles.

Program for the day

Visitors at the Chalmers area are part of the project through more or less active interaction with the vehicles, when moving on the streets or riding the minibus from one side of the campus to the other.

Try the self-driving bus

The bus operates in the Chalmers area until midsummer week, weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm.
You can find it in Västtrafik's To Go app as line 68. (Chalmersplatsen, Sven Hultins Plats)

The activities are part of the SAT project and also part of the SHOW project (financed through EU Horizon 2020.
