Automated transportation systems to be discussed at Smart Mobility Conference
Results from the three large-scale implementations (Heathrow, Castellón and Rome) and from the industrial and academic research will be presented together with general analyses on the advantages and challenges of introducing automated transport technologies in urban mobility.
Specialists in urban planning will present their views on the changes which can be expected from the introduction of these new (semi) automated transportation systems to make life in cities better and more sustainable. The conference will be held in parallel with an exhibition of automated vehicles.
Conference delegates will have a guided tour of La Rochelle’s cybercars demonstration, one of the first transportation systems based on fully automated vehicles in a public area. This demonstration follows the advanced mobility "showcases" which were carried out in several European cities during the CityMobil project. It will run within walking distance of the conference venue until June 2011.
