The early deployment of automated electric buses, as a sustainable future mobility concept, depends not only on technical development but also on comprehensive public transportation planning. Local authorities and transportation companies’ planners must strategically incorporate automated buses into the public transportation network on suitable rou...
Future mobility is described as efficient, environmentally friendly, automated, connected, shared and safe. Automated shuttle buses that are electrically operated combine the flexibility of individual transport with the cost efficiency of public transport. This technology leads to the reduction of congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore,...
Automated shuttle buses are one of the future mobility concepts. As part of the AS-NaSA project, an automated shuttle bus was tested in Stolberg (Germany, Saxony-Anhalt) in 2021. Besides the use, the acceptance of such systems is very important. In addition to the users, however, the residents who live along a pilot route of an automated shuttle bu...
Automated shuttle buses in particular require solutions for monitoring and controlling. An operations control software for automated shuttle buses was designed and developed. Usability tests show that implemented functions of the operations control centre are necessary for the selected use cases. There is potential for optimisation with regard to t...
Automated shuttle buses are part of sustainable mobility concepts of the future. Although the number of pilot operations with automated shuttle buses has increased significantly in recent years, they are hardly used permanently. Municipalities and transportation companies seem to have reasons that prevent them from permanently operating with automa...
Motivation, Umsetzung und Fazit über einem Mockup einer Betriebsleitstelle für Automatisierte Shuttlebusse – Konzeption und Design eines Universellen, Visuellen und Auditiven Interfaces (Verbundprojekt)
Derzeit sind automatisierte Shuttlebusse beim Einsatz auf einen Operator an Bord angewiesen. Damit sich dies nicht erst beim vollständig autonomen Fahren ändert, bedarf es weiterer Lösungsansätze. Eine Möglichkeit ist die Überwachung der Busse aus einer Betriebsleitstelle. Allerdings können mit den Betriebsleitstellen von Verkehrsgesellschaften nac...
Automated shuttle buses are part of future mobility concepts due to their flexibility and cost efficiency. In order to enlarge the expansion of pilot operations with automated shuttle buses, local authorities and transport companies in particular need information on the possible uses of the vehicles in public areas. On the basis of a best-practice...
