Autonomous Transport Systems

Autonomous Transport Systems by ZF

Traditional public transportation is changing and expanding. Our autonomous transport system offers a concept to ease the pressure on urban districts and connect rural areas more conveniently. A network of electrically powered, driverless shuttles with on-demand scheduling and a seamless connection to other public transport systems such as buses and trains represents a true alternative to privately owned cars.

ZF's Next Generation Shuttle

Torsten Gollewski, Executive Vice President, Autonomous Mobility Systems at ZF, explains the new-generation autonomous Level 4 shuttle.

Clean Transportation with Autonomous Shuttles

Driverless, fully electric shuttles can relieve congested inner-city streets, reduce emissions and better connect rural areas. With its autonomous transport system, ZF offers a complete ecosystem from a single source.

Our Applications

Our Solutions: Already Available Today

Autonomous transport systems are not visions of the future. With our shuttles for segregated lanes, we offer a clean, safe and tailored-to-local-markets public transport solution that can already be deployed today. This system has been extensively tested: In various projects around the world, our vehicles have covered over 100 million kilometers autonomously. Our portfolio also includes applications for dedicated lanes and mixed operations.
