About the project
At the moment, our society is facing the challenge of ensuring mobility in the long term and continuing our mobile life without restrictions. At the same time, massive changes are needed to minimize the burden of traffic and to enable the necessary transport and climate change.
The use of automated vehicles in future local public transport (LPT) will play a major role in this process of change. In the design of efficient mobility networks in local public transport, the use of digital possibilities is crucial and can massively support the development of genuine mobility alternatives to the private car.
The CAMIL project aims to build on the experience already gained in the use of automated vehicles in public transport. In doing so, the project has the clear goal of not only using the applications that are already available, but also to significantly expand and further develop them. The research groups at the Technische Universität Ilmenau and the Thüringer Mobilitätszentrum Ilmenau (ThIMo) play a central role in this research project in order to bring innovations from the Free State of Thuringia into the development process around mobility.
