About SAAM

SAAM is the Swiss Association for Autonomous Mobility. We aim to shape the mobility of tomorrow by providing a platform of exchange and collaboration between its members with a focus on concrete projects.

Organisation

Autonomous mobility can only be adressed in a holistic approach. For this reason, SAAM is organised in Streams and Working Groups. The Streams aim to study specific aspects of autonomous mobility, such as regulation, social acceptance and technology. Working Groups enable members to work together on specific topics in an interdisciplinary format. Through this organisation, SAAM intends to create value and outputs thanks to concrete exchanges of information & know-how between members and by carrying out innovative projects accross Switzerland.

Vision

SAAM helps to improve everyday life in Switzerland through autonomous mobility.

Mission

As the leading autonomous mobility platform in Switzerland, SAAM aims to implement new mobility services by sharing knowledge between its members, collaborating on projects and accompanying new policies.

Streams

Streams enable to have a better common understanding on the major topics of future mobility

The major topics in regard to unmanned vehicles that must be addressed today are regulation, social acceptance and technology. In order to address them, SAAM has created streams which aim to foster collaboration and exchanges on each of the three topics.

Regulation

SAAM provides a platform to develop guiding principles and regulations around the safe and publicly acceptable introduction of autonomous vehicles.

Social Acceptance

SAAM proves how autonomous vehicles can be sustainably implemented while maintaining public acceptance.

Technology

SAAM explores best technological practices for Swiss conditions and actively works to attract technology companies for state-of-the-art projects in Switzerland.​

Working groups

Working Groups allow to create value and inputs through interdisciplinary teams

SAAM City

Museum of Transport Luzern

Inline with SAAM's mission, the idea to build a SAAM City was born, as a framework of physical locations where autonomous mobility can be experienced. Those experiences can help driving the public dialogue necessary for policies to be defined and approved, thus bringing technologies directly to the citizens.

Line 13 - Schaffhausen

Dual Mode & Remotely Operated Vehicle

Schauffhausen, through the Swiss Transit Lab, has introduced the first conventional vehicle in Switzerland that was made autonomous using automating kits. The idea is to bring the project a step further by integrating the vehicle to public roads and by removing the driver inside using remote operation.

Mobility Transition

Fundamental approaches to new mobility systems

How will autonomous vehicles shape our future ? Which are the best approaches to accompany new mobility technologies so that they are socially accepted ? How can we make sure these technologies are safe, secure and compliant to regulations ? This Working Group aims to answer these fundamental questions.
