In this episode, Dominik Schallauer explores the SHOW Austrian Mega Sites that are deploying Automated Vehicles (AVs) in Graz, Salzburg and Carinthia. He also tells us about their public transport services targeting peri-urban areas as well as parcels delivery.
In the second part of the episode, Dominik explains how the legislative framework for AVs needs to be distinguished between testing and real operation. He emphasises among others the crucial role of a safety driver while testing an AV service since he monitors the ride and helps collecting learnings from the test in preparation of future real operations.
The episode was recorded in April 2022 following the release of the second amendment to the Austrian edict on automated driving (AutomatFahrV).
