Enabling autonomous public transportAutonomous shuttles promise to increase comfort and hence acceptance of public transport by cost-efficiently connecting the last mile to public transport hubs. In order to pave their way for reliable operation in complex urban settings, environmental challenges such as traffic scenarios, pedestrians, and weather conditions have to be handled in a predictable and safe way. We demonstrate technologies for their test and safe operation in real mixed traffic at the Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg.
