The FABULOS procuring partners have awarded four international consortia with contracts. Based on the results of their feasibility study, each consortium will develop a prototype of a smart system that can operate a fleet of self-driving shuttles in regular public transport. The work starts in June and the prototypes will be tested in lab-type environments during the autumn of 2019.
The FABULOS consortium has finalised the evaluation of the tenders and has awarded five consortia with contracts. The aim of these contracts is to facilitate procurement of R&D work to develop systems capable of operating fleets of automated minibuses. As a first step towards this goal, each consortium will conduct a feasibility study of proposed solutions and technologies.
