Automated and connected driving can be part of the solution to urban mobility problems in the future. In this regard, the predecessor projects See-Meile and Shuttles&Co have already shown that safe and reliable operation in ongoing traffic on public roads is possible and has been well received. The experience gained from this project will now be applied to the Urban Tech Republic (UTR, former Tegel Airport).
In addition to the derivation of technical improvements from accumulated operational data, the focus is on user-centered technology development and, in particular, on human-machine interaction in the control center (technical supervision in accordance with the StVG amendment), on the road (virt. Stop) and in the vehicles (passenger guidance).
The KIS'M project therefore investigates how connected and automated driving in higher levels of automation up to autonomous (driverless) driving with cooperative maneuvers including social participation is possible, what implementation strategies for regular operation, including interfaces suitable for automation, might look like, how digitalization and networking are possible in road traffic. Within the project, the Berlin Agency for Electromobility eMO is primarily responsible for work package 5.5, in which the scaling of areas of application in social dialog. The goal is to demonstrate the transferability of close-to-the-market technology and identify application sites. This includes, but is not limited to:
Identification of and contact with relevant application areas (campuses, plant sites, etc.) and stakeholders
The organization, implementation, and evaluation of innovation exchanges for stakeholders to discuss the transfer of concepts.
Development of a roll-out strategy for Berlin districts and large campuses as well as factory sites based on the knowledge gained by means of the innovation exchanges.
