What it is about

Autonomous driving is only the beginning of an evolution of how we will move and move goods from A to B in the future. And it does not require far-seeing visions to concretize three-dimensional multi-modular traffic and logistics possibilities. Required techniques and technologies have already reached a high degree of maturity. Almost every day we are surprised by new mobility concepts. Nevertheless, there are still many unanswered questions.

The Forum deals with autonomous traffic and logistics in several dimensions – on the Road, on Rail, at Sea, in the Air and in Space – because we assume that exchange between the actors could result in high value to each of them.
