Tell us your opinion on robot buses!

FABULOS Project has been piloting self-driving buses in five European countries. During these field tests, citizens were encouraged to hop on board and take a test ride while pilots were running in Helsinki, Tallinn, Algård, Lamia and Helmond.  In addition to the opinions of passengers, we would also like to receive feedback from a wider…

Vastaa robottibussikyselyyn!

FABULOS-hankkeessa on jo testattu robottibusseja viidessä eri Euroopan kaupungissa FABULOS. Kokeiluja järjestettiin Helsingin lisäksi Virossa, Norjassa, Kreikassa ja Hollannissa. Kartoitamme tällä kyselyllä sekä robottibussilla matkustaneiden että laajemman yleisön mielipiteitä automatisoidusta julkisesta liikenteestä. Vastaukset auttavat meitä suunnittelemaan toimivampaa  julkista liikennettä tulevaisuudessa.  Kyselyyn vastaaminen vie vain noin 3 minuuttia.    VASTAA KYSELYYN TÄSTÄ Haluatko tietää lisää robottibusseista?

Passenger survey results

Without acceptance by citizens, shared autonomous mobility innovations will never become a widespread mode of transportation. Therefore, in the FABULOS requirements, there was a non-functional requirement that included carrying out passenger surveys during the Field Testing phase of pre-commercial procurement. This was done between April 2020 and March 2021 in 5 out of the 6 pilot locations: the…
