Siemens, the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Hamburger Hochbahn are all busy to launch a self-driving electric shuttle as part of Hamburg’s public transport offering.

The new autonomous EV for the Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation project (HEAT) has now been introduced. The five-metre long electric shuttle bus will travel through Hamburg’s HafenCity harbour district starting in mid-2020.

Trial operation though will start this August. In the first phase, the electric vehicle will be on the road without passengers on a specified route in test operation – in order to gather data and experience. The first passengers will not be taken along until mid-2020, still with a vehicle attendant. Autonomous Level 4 operation without a companion is to be achieved in October 2021.
