IOV Omnibusverkehr GmbH Ilmenau
As a municipal transport company in the Ilm district, IOV Omnibusverkehr GmbH Ilmenau is a practical partner in the "autonomous driving" project. In order to ensure that the project runs as smoothly as possible, IOV will contribute its daily know-how in the field of local public transport. The tasks in the project amount to: Operation of the vehicles with the help of an "operator", maintenance of the vehicles, monitoring of the operational processes (adherence to the timetable, troubleshooting), preparation of the operational planning (Ilmenau city transport line D), ticket sales and providing information.
In the course of the project, IOV hopes to be able to gather findings on the practical suitability of autonomous vehicles in public transport. For example, on the charging and discharging of battery systems in daily public transport use and the maintenance of vehicles with high-voltage systems.
