Karsan Presents Autonomous Buses at MOVE 2022

Karsan, one of the leading companies in the Turkish automotive industry, talked about its Autonomous e-ATAK projects for the future public transportation solution, self-driving buses, at MOVE 2022, held in England and called the most important mobility event in the world. Karsan CEO Okan Baş, who took part as a speaker at the event, stated that the solution is to use zero-emission, environmentally friendly public transportation vehicles in order to reduce the carbon footprint, solve the problems in traffic and offer people more livable spaces, adding, “The first stop of public transportation is electric. The transformation from fossil fuel vehicles, which are among the most important causes of environmental pollution, to environmentally friendly, silent and technological 100 percent electric vehicles is of great importance. We predict that one out of every two buses sold in 2030 will be zero-emissions. The second step of the public transportation solution is driverless/autonomous vehicles, which will significantly eliminate driver-related traffic accidents.

Unlike passenger cars, we believe that autonomous public transportation vehicles will lead the world at least 10 years. As Karsan, we aim to raise awareness on this issue and to be a pioneer in people doing this job. In this context; We will take our steps to be a pioneer in the autonomous public transportation transformation.

75% of the total carbon emissions in the world originate from the city. The 20 cities with the largest carbon footprints are responsible for 100 percent of global carbon emissions. The world population is expected to approach 2050 billion by 11, and 70 percent of this will live in cities. By 2030, nearly 6 billion people are expected to live in megacities. "This means more than 150 cities of 10 million people," he said.

Stating that the demand for transportation is expected to increase by 2030 percent until 15, Baş stated that the solution is to reduce the carbon footprint, solve the traffic problem and offer people more livable areas, mobility solutions that take up less space in traffic. He stated that while the transportation of 50 people from point A to point B takes up a large space for 50 vehicles in individual transportation, a bus occupies a very small area, so the first solution to the traffic problem is public transportation. And he emphasized that while the traffic problem is prevented with public transportation, carbon emissions are also reduced.

"Solution; in zero-emission, environmentally friendly public transportation vehicles. The first stop of public transport is also electric. Okan Baş said, “With the mandatory regulations and incentives of governments and environmental protection organizations; Especially in the bus sector, we predict that one out of every two buses sold in 100 will be zero emission. The second step of the uninterrupted public transportation solution is driverless/autonomous vehicles, which will significantly eliminate driver-related traffic accidents.

According to the research of global management consultancy company Mc Kinsey, it is predicted that roboshuttles will have a share of 2030 percent in uninterrupted mobility in 25. Safety is the biggest concern of 60 percent of passengers. In order for autonomous roboshuttles to move on their own, the signaling infrastructures to communicate with the roads must also be ready. On the other hand, real zamTwo important problems of autonomous vehicles are mapping and defining its location by the vehicle. A robust and precise positioning and mapping method is required for autonomous vehicles.

It is seen as an important security concern that passengers share their personal information such as their location and destination with smart transportation systems. Another concern in autonomous vehicles is that it is not yet clear which side the fault will be sought after the accident, whether the responsible party will be vehicle-production officials or the passengers inside the vehicle. In addition, the operation of driverless vehicles in real traffic conditions is subject to special permits today. In this sense, the lack of readiness of regulatory regulations may delay the adaptation of technology to real life.

We expect the autonomous transformation to be much faster for public transportation. Unlike passenger cars, public transportation vehicles do not move according to their own routes. They always come and go in a certain area. The needs and range of motion of both the passenger and the vehicle are within a certain plan. Therefore, factors such as awareness and controllability of road and traffic conditions make it easier to implement autonomous solutions in public transportation. For this reason, we believe that unlike passenger cars, autonomous in the world will lead at least 10 years for public transportation vehicles. As Karsan, we aim to raise awareness on this issue and to be a pioneer for people to do this work.

Autonomous e-ATAK, Europe and America's first 8-meter full-length Level 4 bus, runs on a 5-kilometer route on the Michigan State University campus. And here, in real traffic, it carries students and lecturers. This project is a first in America. As of May, we started the passenger transportation service after obtaining the traffic exit permits. Thanks to the sensitive mapping in the vehicle, the autonomous e-ATAK can approach the stops precisely in one go, providing 10% energy savings compared to the driver's use.

For the first time in Europe, Karsan Otonom started to carry passengers with e-ATAK tickets on an ordinary real public transportation line. This is the first and only example of public transport in Europe. This is not a pilot route, but a real public transport route. The route is quite complex and difficult. Even at the starting point, tourists get off heavily from a pier where cruise ships dock. On the other hand, Autonomous e-ATAK can successfully handle this pedestrian traffic. In a short period of two weeks, 2 thousand 600 passengers traveled with our vehicle. This figure is very meaningful to us. Normally, a maximum of 6 people traveled for 2 months in trial projects for autonomous vehicles in Europe. Demands come from different countries such as France and Qatar for the autonomous e-ATAK," he said. Explaining that “As Karsan, we will take our steps towards being a pioneer in autonomous public transportation transformation,” Baş said, “In this sense, we aim to bring our full electric product range, which we offer from 600 to 6 meters, autonomous.”
