Kick-off to cross-border automated mobility – the Greater Region on the move

Saarbrücken

15th February 2019

Safe, environmentally conscious and flexible – these are the central demands on the mobility of the future. In the border region between Germany, France and Luxembourg, mobility in the work environment is an important factor. It must be simple, cheap and available to everyone. The automation and intelligent networking of road traffic plays a central role in this. In the TERMINAL project, 15 partners from science, mobility providers and public administration are working and researching on the establishment of automated, electric buses in cross-border commuter traffic. The project started in January 2019 and will run until December 2021. It has a volume of around 3 million Euros and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) with approximately 1.8 million Euros from the “Interreg VA Greater Region” programme. The lead partner of the project is the Saarland University of Applied Sciences (htw saar).
