The AutoTram(R), developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI in Dresden, demonstrates a future-oriented technology for public transport. As an intermediate public transport vehicle conception, it combines features of conventional buses (e.g. high flexibility, low infrastructure costs and moderate life cycle costs) with the advantages of trams like high transport capacity, driving comfort and the possibility of partial emission-free operation. Due to its design, the AutoTram(R) is used as a demonstrator for electric mobility research projects of the Fraunhofer society.
