Three consortia will pilot self-driving shuttles as part of regular traffic in five European cities

The FABULOS procuring partners have awarded three international consortia with contracts for the final phase of the pre-commercial procurement. These consortia will pilot autonomous buses as part of existing public transport systems, and the fleets of three buses each will be piloted in Gjesdal, Helmond, Helsinki, Lamia and Tallinn between April and October 2020.

Four possible solutions for autonomous urban transport

How can cities use automated buses in a systematic way? The FABULOS project has narrowed down four innovative solutions to this challenge, providing a variety to choose from a procurement point of view, and encouraging companies to reach for top level innovations.
