Research project: CityMobil2: Cities Demonstrating Cybernetic Mobility

Currently Active: 
Yes

Citymobil2 is a large EC-sponsored collaborative project to demonstrate the use of automated vehicles in a number of locations across Europe

Project Overview

CityMobil2’s objective is to implement large-scale pilot platforms for technical and socioeconomic test and validation of automated transport systems in urban environments and to carry them around to different cities for demonstration and evaluation.

CityMobil2 will also perform research activities using the pilot demonstration test bed into technical, financial, cultural, behavioural aspects and effects on land use policies and how new systems could fit into existing infrastructure in different cities.

CityMobil2 will concentrate on cybercars technology which is the basis for both Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) and Group Rapid Transit (GRT) systems but which does not require (as a PRT does) a very expensive segregated infrastructure.
