Automated and connected driving (AVF) opens up new opportunities to make the urban mobility system more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Through the cooperation of key stakeholders (public administration, public transport companies, car manufacturers, research institutions and other partners), Munich is to be developed into a model region for the use of AVF technologies. On this basis, approaches for new mobility services and business models are to be developed. The focus is on the needs of citizens, the city administration and mobility providers with regard to social, urban planning, economic and ecological aspects. Realistic development paths for “mobility transformation” are to be developed from the requirements.

First, a target image is developed for the orientation of the strategic options for action from a municipal perspective. Building on this, aspects of the legal, regulatory and control framework will be considered. Integrated traffic modeling is used to determine and evaluate the effects of automated and networked fleets in the form of mixed scenarios. Based on the knowledge gained, models for individual public transport and ride-pooling services and the necessary fleet intelligence will be developed, tested in practice and evaluated in terms of their applicability and user acceptance.
