Oslo looks into the autonomous future

By [email protected] - 8th May 2018 - 15:14

Norwayâs capital Oslo wants to be prepared for autonomous vehicles and new mobility trends. The software tools required for transport planning and modelling are provided by PTV Group from Karlsruhe, Germany. The job is to develop a model that helps understand the implications of new forms of transport and trends brought about by the introduction of driverless vehicles. COWI has been selected to identify potential opportunities, risks and implications for urban and transport planning in Oslo and Akershus that may arise from these new mobility trends. Various future scenarios will be examined using PTV software. What is the impact of driverless vehicles that are integrated into the public fleet on the peopleâs mobility behaviour? What happens if everyone owns their own autonomous car so that conventional vehicles are steadily being replaced? What kind of autonomous sharing concepts should be implemented? With PTV MaaS Modeller, it can map and analyse exactly these kinds of scenarios.
