#4 Dominik Schallauer – Preparing cities to AV deployment
In this episode, Dominik Schallauer explores the SHOW Austrian Mega Sites that are deploying Automated Vehicles (AVs) in Graz, Salzburg and Carinthia. He also tells us about their public transport services targeting peri-urban areas as well as parcels delivery.  In the second part of the episode, Dominik explains how the legislative framework for AVs needs to be distinguished between testing and real operation. He emphasises among others the crucial role of a safety driver while testing an AV service since he monitors the ride and helps collecting learnings from the test in preparation of future real operations.  The episode was recorded in April 2022 following the release of the second amendment to the Austrian edict on automated driving (AutomatFahrV).  -- Links: AustriaTech www.austriatech.at SHOW Mega Site Austria  SHOW Analysis report on legal, regulatory, institutional frameworks (D3.1)     -- Subscribe to the SHOW newsletter to receive the latest updates:   Disclaimer: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 875530.

#3 Katharina Karnahl – Towards seamless and safe transportation
In this episode, you will learn about the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the specific role of Katharina Karnahl in the Institute of Transportation Systems. Katharina explains us the concept of intermodality, in which you can use seamlessly several means of transport to reach your destination. She mentions the need for connectivity of vehicles – if automated or not – to enable more fluidity in the traffic flow and reduce the emissions of vehicles.  In her vision of the perfect city, she doesn’t have to bother on how to get from A to be, about the parking space or about traffic jam. For this, she underlines the need of integration of different means of transportation (including AVs) in the public transport system so that “we have the possibility to move around smoothly, safely, with low emission and negative effect on mobility”. -- Links: DLR: German Aerospace Center | Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt.

#1 Endre Angelvik – Towards more sustainable freedom of movement
In this episode, you will get to know Endre Angelvik, who is Executive Vice President of Radical Innovation at Ruter, chair of the Combined Mobility Committee at UITP and lastly member of the Advisory Board of the SHOW project. You will learn about Ruter and Endre’s various missions, all being gathered under the humble objective of changing the world! Endre shared with us his vision of car-free city and how Automated Shared Mobility could help for that. “Automated Vehicles have the potential to make service cheaper from an operator point of view, which means theoretically that the service will be available to more people.” He speaks about his motivation for the field and why we should put more (driverless) wheels on the ground. -- Links: Ruter website  Combined Mobility Committee UITP  Advisory Board members of SHOW  Policy Brief on Autonomous Mobility   -- Acronyms: MaaS: Mobility as a ServicePTA: Public Transport AuthorityPTO: Public Transport OperatorAVs: Automated Vehicles -- Subscribe to the SHOW newsletter to receive the latest updates:   Disclaimer: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 875530.
