SAFESTREAM-Project (Landkreis Kelheim)
Booth number: 55439-28
SAFESTREAM is a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) with €8.9 million. In addition, the consortium partners are investing €6.9 million euros in the project. We want to advance the operation of driverless public transport to SAE Level 4.
Our goal is to remove the currently required safety attendant from the vehicle in a legally compliant manner. Building on the hitherto operation of automated shuttles, we want to implement a legally impeccable and fully driverless Level 4 operation in defined operating areas in Kelheim and Monheim am Rhein. This requires a Level 4-capable vehicle and the use of a technical supervisor who is not physically present in the vehicle but can remotely interact with the vehicle via a network connection if necessary. For this purpose, we will develop and put into operation a new generation of vehicles that will complement the already existing fleets in both cities.
