Connected and autonomous driving by road and rail will shape future mobility

Connected and autonomous driving by road and rail will shape future mobility

Connected and autonomous driving by road and rail will shape future mobility

Connected and self-driving vehicles are on the horizon. Autonomous taxis and minibuses could cover the last mile between homes and public mass transit and long-distance transport hubs, helping make private cars superfluous in cities and relieving congestion. In rail transport as well, fully automated systems and connectivity can help satisfy the rapidly growing demand for mobility. Making vehicles and infrastructure more intelligent can ensure better availability and make mobility safer. All this adds up to vastly improved urban environments.

Siemens is working with municipalities, public transit authorities and research institutes to develop these transport concepts.

Siemens campus in Munich-Perlach to field-test autonomous driving

Siemens Mobility is starting a field test for autonomous driving at the Siemens campus in Munich-Perlach, Germany, and has initiated a research project and set up a field test. The test route runs through the campus and enables the simulation of a variety of traffic situations under real-life conditions. Together with the project partners IAV GmbH, the Institut für Klimaschutz, Energie und Mobilität (IKEM) e.V., emm Solutions GmbH, UTB Projektmanagement GmbH and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) Siemens Mobility will work together testing the interaction of roadside infrastructure, cloud-based software services and autonomous electric vehicles.
