About

The arrival of driverless autonomous vehicles represents a unique opportunity for a fundamental change in urban mobility and could lead to healthier, more competitive and greener cities - but only if the vehicles are integrated into an effective public transport network. A future with autonomous 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 liveable 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 autonomous 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 autonomous vehicles in our cities.

Learning objectives

  • Explore autonomous mobility and discuss the possible scenarios of introducing autonomous vehicles in the most sustainable way for our cities. If employed with effective vehicle-sharing schemes, driverless autonomous vehicles could greatly enhance public transport.
