The FABULOS consortium warmly invites cities, public transport authorities and operators, road authorities, mobility and robotics specialists from around the world to join the online Final Conference on 18 February.
They would like to share their results and lessons with you. Via a pre-commercial procurement, six cities worked together with three commercial consortia to bring automated shared mobility in Europe a big step further. As a result of this R&D project, a proof-of-concept for the management of autonomous fleets as part of the public transportation is now available. Therefore, the FABULOS Final conference offers a unique opportunity to hear about the state of the art in autonomous shared mobility.
During the Final Conference we will dive deeper into the three different prototype solutions from our Norwegian, Estonian and Finnish consortia. The experiences from the FABULOS cities will also play a prime role. Other key themes are driverless shuttles as part of public transport, innovation procurement, regulatory aspects and technical lessons learned on turnkey robot bus solutions, including the remote operations of such a fleet.

The 2020 annual flagship conference of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society will be held in Rhodes, Greece in September. LEVITATE will contribute to this conference with a special session: Advances in Connected and Autonomous Mobility: From Data to Models, Impacts and Enablers for Adoption.
Recent breakthroughs in technology, digital infrastructure, dynamic mapping and big data computing will transform the way we will plan, undertake, interact, make decisions and use our built environment and transportation infrastructure for the movement of people and goods. Connected and Autonomous Mobility (CAM), enabled by vehicle connectivity and automation, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT), allows unprecedented capability to collect, exchange and analyze large volumes of data to formulate models and tools for optimal decision making at individual, local and city levels and will, therefore, increasingly be revolutionized our economy and society over the next decade. However, to what extent they will disrupt mobility and transport operations is still a subject of research. CAM services are expected to emerge in various forms affecting different user groups and imposing network-level changes on various urban scales. To this end, understanding public acceptance and the levels of adoption (and respective timing) of emerging technologies, devising novel approaches and modeling tools to replicate mixed and CAV (Connected and Autonomous Vehicles) traffic in large-scale urban networks for impact assessment and identifying large-scale procedures and policies for CAV traffic management are the key factors for successful deployment of CAM services.
This special session aims at:
- providing the audience with information about the deployment of state-of-the-art vehicular and transportation technologies to CAM in a smart city context;
- discussing the latest advancements, existing data, conceptual and modeling hurdles and challenges in both research and practice (particularly on the selected topics below)
- identifying potential research gaps and collaboration opportunities between industry and academia.
