Line 13 of the Swiss Transit Lab

2022+

With Line 13, the Swiss Transit Lab is about to take another step in the development of automated mobility in public transport. With the planned pilot project, a pilot line will be put into operation in the city center of Schaffhausen between the train station and the Stahlgiesserei development area before the end of this year. Following the tourist application of line 12 at the Rhine Falls, the development of the first and last mile by automated vehicles should thus arrive in the everyday life of the population of Schaffhausen.

AVENUE EU Project

2018

Within the framework of the Avenue project, the tpg showcases a 100% automated, full scale On-Demand, shared, door2door, dynamically routed, public transport service with a fleet of automated zero-emission mini busses serving a large number of virtual bus-stops and connected to the existing transport network.

Driverless cars and pedestrians

2022

Driverless cars are likely to influence the future of mobility. But how will pedestrians interact with driverless cars? What would be the best, safest and most sustainable design for a transportation system that accommodates all modes of traffic?

Automated Valet Parking (AVP)

2021

This project illustrates the interoperability of vehicle models and AVP technologies. A central control system takes over vehicles at a parking garage entrance and parks them autonomously.

Line 100

2017-2021

This pilot project, where two automated shuttles linked the Marly Innovation Center (MIC) quarter to the Fribourg Public Transport (TPF) network, was the result of a true public-private partnership. This project enabled to transport 17,700 passengers and cover 47,000 kilometers. Completed in December 2021, it has contributed to the acquisition of numerous skills and to measure the real level of development of self-driving technologies.

Autonomous Bus Depot Pre-Study

2022

Can driverless buses help to optimise bus depots? Are autonomous bus depots technologically feasible and economically worthwhile? This pre-study project will answer these questions. Then, a real pilot project will be launched.

Transport as a Service (TaaS)

2021

The goal of the TaaS project is to develop a Digital Twin for the future implementation of Transport as a Service and intelligent ecosystems in business parks. In addition, an economic and legal analysis will complete the digital twin, which will make TaaS implementable on a large scale.

SmartShuttle

2015-2021

The electric SmartShuttles have been running On-Demand in the Uvrier district of Sion since April. Residents and tourists can book the self-driving vehicles via an app or by phone for their journey free of charge during a trial operation period lasting several months. The combination of self-driving vehicles and On-Demand represents new territory for the partners involved.

MyShuttle

2017-2019

The MyShuttle Project brought an autonomous shuttle into regular traffic in the City of Zug. The chosen routes included speed zones up to 50 km/h and mixed traffic including public transport route buses, regular mixed city traffic, pedestrian crossings, traffic lights and even bike lanes – at the time, one of the most complex environments in Europe for this kind of vehicle.

2015: the first driverless car on Swiss roads

2015

With the driverless car, Swisscom aimed to gain insights into how mobility might look in the future. Innovation in tomorrow’s cars is highly dependent on networking and interaction with the environment, which is why Swisscom got involved in mobility issues of the future today.
