UITP Academy is launching an in-person training programme together with our Regional Training Center of Technologie Region Karlsruhe on Automated Mobility, taking place from 28th February to 2nd March 2023.  The course will take place in Karlsruhe, Germany. Find more information on the “Venue”tab of this webpage.


The arrival of driverless vehicles represents a unique opportunity for a fundamental change in urban mobility and could lead to safer, healthier, more competitive and greener cities – but only if the vehicles are integrated into an effective public transport network. A future with automated and connected vehicles can have various outcomes depending on how they are designed, operated and regulated. Will they lead to more cars on the road, more urban sprawl and more congestion? Or will they contribute to shaping sustainable and livable cities, the regaining of urban space for people, less vehicles on the road and a higher quality of life?


The experience of operating fleets of automated vehicles remains limited today, therefore this training programme aims at learning from the current deployments operated by various mobility services providers worldwide. Participants will be learning from experienced trainers who are stakeholders of real-life driverless mobility services and the way forward for the introduction of automated vehicles in our cities.

The programme will cover the different modes like Bus, shuttles, and taxi, all deployed for shared mobility.
