SHOW aims to support the deployment of shared, connected and electrified automation in urban transport, to advance sustainable urban mobility. During the project, real-life urban demonstrations taking place in 20 cities across Europe will see the integration of fleets of automated vehicles in public transport, demand-responsive transport (DRT), Mobility a Service (MaaS) and Logistics as a Service (LaaS) schemes.
SHOW is the biggest and most holistic ever initiative piloting automated vehicles in urban environments. It gathers a strong partnership including 69 partners from 13 EU-countries and fosters international cooperation by collaborating with organisations from the US, South Korea, Australia, China, and other countries.
SHOW will conduct real-life urban demonstrations taking place in 20 cities in Europe for 24 months, with real service seamless operation in each pilot site lasting at least 12 months.
In total, SHOW will deploy a fleet of more than 70 SAE L4/L5 AVs of all types for both passenger and cargo transport in dedicated lanes and mixed traffic, connected to a wide range of supporting infrastructure (5G, G5, IoT) and operating under traffic speeds ranging from 18 to over 50km/h.
By doing this, SHOW aims to promote and evaluate the future transformation of the current city traffic environment and ecosystem to a fully sustainable one driven by automation, electrification, cooperativeness, and inclusiveness.
