End of the line - and then? For the first and last mile beyond the public transport network, residents in Karlsruhe will be able to request the „EVA Shuttle“ via app - an electrically driven, connected and automated mini-bus. TÜV SÜD is one of the partners in the research project.
From the front door to the bus stop and vice versa: In the project „EVA-Shuttle Buses“ („Electric, connected and autonomously running electric mini-buses in public transport“) a consortium is currently developing, and testing connected and autonomously running electric shuttles. These are called via app, take passengers according to the principle of carpooling (Ridepooling) and then bring them to their destination. The aim of the project, which involves putting an automated fleet through its paces under real conditions on the „Test Field Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg“: Create a new public transport offer that allows more flexibility and comfort.
In addition to the FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik, Robert Bosch GmbH, Verkehrsbetriebe
Karlsruhe GmbH and the Deutsche Bahn subsidiary ioki GmbH, TÜV SÜD Auto Service GmbH is also part of the consortium of the project, which is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) with 2.32 million Euros as part of
