Digitalisation and automation are also making progress in rail transportation.
In isolated networks, such as metros, trains can already run driverless today. The talk will highlight the opportunities and risks of driverless driving on rail.
A novel system can only be successfully implemented if it is also accepted by the users. One focus of the talk will therefore be the analysis of passenger acceptance of driverless rail transport.
