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.
