The focus is on autonomous driving, the intelligent use of vehicle data and the integration of electric vehicles into the power grid. Together with its Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Moia, Cariad, Elli and MAN Truck & Bus brands, the group is providing a forum for interested parties and experts with live demonstrations of pioneering pilot projects, discussion panels, lectures and expert talks.

“Intelligent transportation systems play a key role in future-proof mobility in cities and beyond,” said Gernot Döllner, senior VP group strategy at Volkswagen. “They are the basic prerequisite for carbon-neutral, connected, safe and tailored mobility solutions and key factors in our New Auto Group strategy. Together with our partners, we will make the mobility of people and goods even more efficient, sustainable and convenient.”

For Volkswagen, autonomous driving is a key technology that enables new mobility solutions and improves road safety. Moia is using an interactive simulation to show how large-fleet autonomous ride-sharing can contribute to the mobility revolution.

AD1, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is allowing visitors to experience various usage scenarios of self-driving shuttles for the transportation of goods and people. Cariad is providing insights into data-based services that help improve traffic safety and flow. For example, anonymised data from group vehicles enables authorities in Europe and the US to optimise road maintenance and winter services already today.

Another core topic is the systematic switch to e-mobility and also, cooperation as a success factor for the transformation.
