The television format SAT1.NRW just reported about the "upBUS" project, a collaboration of the Chair of High Frequency Electronics and the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design.
The scientists conduct research focussing on a public means of transport, combining the advantages of bus and cableway. The aim is to avoid and decrease inner city traffic jams as efficient as possible with the help of the autonomously driving upBUS. RWTH's research team plans to implant the project in the city of Essen three years from now.
More information are given in an interview by a member of the research team of the Chair of High Frequency Electronics, David Bierbüsse.
The complete report can be watched on the homgepage of SAT1.NRW.
