International project

Future of Autonomous Mobility in Central Europe (FAME)

The project deals with the issue of introducing autonomous vehicles to the everyday life of people because there will be an increasing number of such vehicles on transport networks in the near future (according to the independent research). According to the strategies of many European countries governments and the analysis of research subjects there will be massive introduction of autonomous connected transport in the near future and the transformation of transport behaviour will occur (for example, the number of traffic accidents will be reduced by 95%, the number of parking spaces will decrease by 60%, whereas the fuel efficiency will increase by 20%). The project will focus on highlighting the impacts of autonomous mobility on individual sectors and common people, as well as spreading information about it among a wider public. Autonomous mobility will have an impact on the flexibility of land transport (improving the accessibility of land transport), spatial deconcentration, both in the distribution of population and other socio-economic activities and in the growth of spatial mobility of the population. The project will familiarize the public, regional authorities, business and academic sectors with practical examples of autonomous mobility in Europe and with answers on the majority of their questions about introducing autonomous vehicles in the traffic.

The project aims to organize an international student workshop and forum by bringing together representatives from several research institutions, as well as representatives with experience in the field – local authorities, automotive industry, etc. Forum LOGI 2019 can, therefore, have particular importance in the exchange of up-to-date information and new experience in research and scientific knowledge in this area, as well as the experience with the implementation of autonomous connected transport projects.

The dissemination part of the student workshop will be mediated by a travelling exhibition of the student projects. This exhibition called “Future of Autonomous Mobility in Central Europe” will be realized by the partner universities – in a particular time period the partner universities will ensure the implementation of the exhibition in their campuses or in other public places.

The project “Future of Autonomous Mobility in Central Europe (FAME)” is supported by the Visegrad Fund (no. 21910300):
