SHOW PODCAST

If you are curious about automated mobility – also called autonomous, self-driving, or driverless mobility – this podcast is for you. Through a series of interviews, you will get familiar with the concept of automated mobility, how it can impact our lives and you will get to know the people driving this enormous change in urban mobility.  The podcast is hosted by our Project Coordinator, Dr. Henriette Cornet – UITP.

#0 The Host - setting the scene

In this short episode, you will get familiar with the context of the podcast ‘Automated Mobility: The People Behind the Wheel’. Host Henriette Cornet will dive deeper into the term “Automated Mobility” and explain how it merges electric, cooperative and connected, and shared mobility. You will discover the motivation behind the podcast and why road safety is on top of the list. Finally, you will hear more about the SHOW project and the main topics that are addressed in this exciting initiative.

#1 Endre Angelvik – Towards more sustainable freedom of movement

In this episode, you will get to know Endre Angelvik, who is Executive Vice President of Radical Innovation at Ruter, chair of the Combined Mobility Committee at UITP and lastly member of the Advisory Board of the SHOW project. You will learn about Ruter and Endre’s various missions, all being gathered under the humble objective of changing the world!
Endre shared with us his vision of car-free city and how Automated Shared Mobility could help for that. “Automated Vehicles have the potential to make service cheaper from an operator point of view, which means theoretically that the service will be available to more people.” He speaks about his motivation for the field and why we should put more (driverless) wheels on the ground.

#3 Katharina Karnahl - Towards seamless and safe transportation

In this episode, you will learn about the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the specific role of Katharina Karnahl in the Institute of Transportation Systems. Katharina explains us the concept of intermodality, in which you can use seamlessly several means of transport to reach your destination. She mentions the need for connectivity of vehicles – if automated or not – to enable more fluidity in the traffic flow and reduce the emissions of vehicles.

#4 Dominik Schallauer - Preparing cities for AV deployment

In this episode, Dominik Schallauer explores the SHOW Austrian Mega Sites that are deploying Automated Vehicles (AVs) in Graz, Salzburg and Carinthia. He also tells us about their public transport services targeting peri-urban areas as well as parcels delivery.

In the second part of the episode, Dominik explains how the legislative framework for AVs needs to be distinguished between testing and real operation. He emphasises among others the crucial role of a safety driver while testing AV services since he monitors the ride, collects learnings from the test and conducts the risk assessment mandatory in preparation of future real operations.

#6: Ingrid Skogsmo - Understanding Better Citizens’ Needs

In this episode we get to know Ingrid Skogsmo, from VTI (the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute). Ingrids tells us how her career and interest into automated mobility started 20 years ago at Volvo, while working in crash safety. As leader of the Cluster on Societal Aspects and User Needs at the CCAM Association, Ingrid highlights that “It is not the consumer that we have to convince about technology, it is everyone out there and their expectations towards more safety, better environment, less congestion and more jobs”.

After many years of experience in automated mobility, she sees the need for staying humble towards what we don’t know and continuing the exploration: “Even if we did not know the full picture, we tried to define small steps of things where we knew that – at least if we do this – we go in the right direction.”

    #7: Joachim Hillebrand - Simulating a city with AVs

    In this episode, Joachim Hillebrand, from VIF – the Virtual Vehicle Research Centre, explains his activities in SHOW. On the one hand, Joachim is coordinating the demo site of Graz, Austria, in which passenger cars will transport passengers from the metro station to commercial areas. His other work is to lead the simulation activities in SHOW.

    In this episode you will learn about the different types of simulators that are used in the project, what you can learn from them and why it is complex to make them run together. “Digital twins enable to simulate how a city and its traffic would look like with thousands of AVs; we can’t do that in the real world now.”

      #8: Delphine Grandsart – For a continuous citizen engagement

      In this episode, Delphine introduces EPF – the European Passengers Federation – and its members. She tells us about the passengers whose needs and wishes are key when developing a seamless mobility system in the city.

      In SHOW, Delphine is in charge of the user engagement strategy. She shares with us the different forms that this engagement can take: focus groups, ideathons, hackathons or even citizens’ dialogues, with the ultimate goal to unveil “how much technology do we need for our mobility and what is in it for the end-users and for the society as a whole”. She reminds us that user engagement is a continuous action because new users will always come to try the service and we should not forget about keeping a human touch while developing automated mobility services.

        #9: Guido Di Pasquale - Paving the way to interdisciplinary collaboration

        In this episode, Guido reminds us the vision of UITP for a sustainable mobility with the motto “move people, not cars”. He explains how he contributed to make UITP an important player in the field of automated mobility with the creation of the SPACE project, which kicked off in 2018 and from which SHOW originates.

        Beyond learning on how SHOW was created, we hear about Guido’s interests for the project demos, which aim to put Automated Vehicles in the midst of the public over several months of operation. Guido also explains why European funded projects are powerful tools for research in Europe to establish interdisciplinary collaboration between countries.

        Finally, Guido presents a new association called “PAVE Europe” dedicated on enhancing the public understanding of driverless technology since “we can only succeed if we involve the public now”.
