Dear project participants, interested parties and guests, representatives of the press, ladies and gentlemen,
we are very pleased to invite you to the online final event within our project "Demand-led Autonomous Driving (NAF)-Bus", which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), for:
Tuesday, February 23, 2021, starting at 09:00 via MS Teams.
Since June 2018, NAF bus "EMil" of the French manufacturer EasyMile drove its tours on the GreenTEC Campus in Enge-Sande. 1,691 rounds, 5,290 kilometers driven and 7,155 passengers (including training participants of the campus as well as political representatives) it transported until today. From the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt to the Digital Week in Kiel - the little green autonomous and electrically powered bus attracted interest in many places.
The blue autonomous shuttle "AutoNom" from the French manufacturer Navya, which drove tourists and locals of the little Capitan village through Keitum on a pre-programmed route from May 2019 to October 2020, received equal attention. An astonishing 15,555 passengers drove the 2.5-kilometer public route in 7,426 kilometers in 2,800 laps.
In their review, the project partners explain in various presentations experiences, findings and challenges overcome regarding the two vehicles, but also the legal basis, the approval processes, the acceptance analysis, safety tests, the creation of a passenger app and the energy management analysis. In an outlook, the project team reports on the deployment of the third autonomous bus of the manufacturer HFM (Hanseatische Fahrzeug Manufaktur) for Lunden/Lehe in the district of Dithmarschen, which will be enabled in a part-based project extension until September 2021.
Interested parties please register by e-mail via firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone with Christina Petersen at 04662 61477-67.
The NAF Bus project team looks forward to your participation, stimulating discussions and a joint conclusion with all supporters. We will send you a detailed agenda with the registration, as well as the access data to participate in the online event.
