HEAT stands for Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation.

In essence, this project is about electric minibuses which operate autonomously –
i. e. without drivers – in Hamburg. 

 

Initially, they are only running on a test route in the Hafencity area. We are involved in this project, supporting the buses with intelligent traffic sensors which allow the bus to ‘see what is around the corner’. Communication between driverless vehicles and interconnected transport systems is a major challenge.
