Project Title

Pole Position

Brief Description

As part of the Pole Position project, the self-driving shuttle on the EUREF campus will be expanded with a high-power inductive energy collector and upgraded for fully automated recharging. This is being done in conjunction with on-demand operation.  For the first time, two key technologies of future mobility, automated inductive charging and on-demand use, are being combined, intensively tested, and demonstrated to a broad audience which can come along for the ride.

Parallel to the advancement of the technical components, another main focus of the project is to prepare the self-driving shuttle for potential use on public highways in Berlin. This process is aimed in two directions: On the one hand, to find a suitable deployment route in a timely manner and, on the other hand, to answer any unanswered questions regarding the approval of a shuttle, using the second-generation EZ 10 from Easymile as the test vehicle.
