Combino, the world's first driverless tram produced by Siemens, made its first test drive at the InnoTrans 2018 event. The vehicle will be launched in Germany in the near future.
The world's first autonomous tram The Siemens Combino recently made a successful test drive under the International Railway Technologies, Systems and Vehicles Fair (InnoTrans) in Potsdam, Germany. Combino, which runs about 6 kilometers around the city, is preparing to be opened in the near future.
Combino is an artificial intelligence-driven autonomous tram developed by Siemens and incorporating many of the technologies found in autonomous cars. With artificial intelligence algorithms, it can perform a successful driving in traffic and can automatically brake in the dangers encountered. In other words, she can use her own initiative in emergency situations just like she has a real driver.
Combino, within the city of InnoTrans 2018, carried out an 6 mile test. According to the news by Kate Connolly of the British news agency The Guardian, the trial included an emergency drill pre-designed. A Siemens employee jumped into the vehicle during a test run, and Combino braked successfully. Later, he continued his course when the danger disappeared.
ViP and Siemens are still working with computer scientists at the University of Karlsruhe. Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility said: için By making train and infrastructure smarter, we are working to improve safety for local and long-distance travels. Siemens When all the work is finished, Siemens Combino will start serving as the world's first autonomous tramway in Potsdam, Germany.
