Strassbourg ITS Worldcongress

In the context of the 12th ITS European Congress in Strasbourg (19-22 June), the Eurodistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau has issued a call for expression of interest for the Cross-Rhine Driverless Shuttle Challenge. The Challenge was planned to introduce driverless shuttles as a public transport to all citizens in the Eurodistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau, and to be officially publicly presented at the ITS Congress attendants.

The Challenge wants to prove to the users the value of a driverless shuttle service, its safety in open street traffic, and the degree of maturity of the involved technologies. This Challenge is one of the two cross-border projects within the French-German Initiative for electric and digital mobility initiated by M.Alexander Dobrindt, the German Federal Minister for Transport and Digital Infrastructure and M.Alain Vidalies, the French State Secretary for Transport, Fisheries and the Sea.
