New digital platforms for coordinating transport services and the sharing economy contribute to wide-ranging changes in public transport. One of the most significant changes in the coming decades could be the introduction of autonomous vehicles.
For automated vehicles to be widely deployed, however, regulations, safety requirements and insurance products need to be in place. And to meet the demands of a growing market and better understand automated driving functions, real-life testing is essential.
Mobility Forus develops and operates autonomous transport for cities and municipalities. The company works with authorities in all phases of introducing autonomous transport solutions in a local area.
Mobility Forus helps customers in both the public and private sectors to solve transport challenges. Such challenges include connecting a shopping centre to a train station, a parking garage to a city centre, or offices in a business district. The company tailors the autonomous, public transport to customers’ needs and relevant legislation.
Autonomous vehicles are expected to play a significant role in public transport in years to come. They not only offer lower emissions and costs, but also entire new avenues for transporting people around cities and municipalities.
Mobility Forus’s seamless solutions provide sustainable transport with less pollution, as well as shared mobility in industrial and urban areas.
The market for autonomous vehicles is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, with projections of almost 40 per cent annual growth and a global market value of USD 556 billion by 2026.
Autonomous vehicles from Mobility Forus have been in operation for over 2 000 hours on public roads with heavy traffic. The company provided the first autonomous bus for public transport in Norway, and it is involved in several ongoing projects in Norway.
