About this event

On October 28th, 2021 will be held the PAsCAL event to present the results of Pilot 5, aimed at better understanding the inclusiveness and safety needs of vulnerable passengers using CAVs.

PAsCAL’s Pilot 5, which focuses on the experience of vulnerable travellers in a connected public transport system, has finalised the piloting of the Apertum platform, an application for accesible wayfinding in Madrid’s public transport system. More than 200 participants from Spain and Italy have taken part in the pilot and gave unique insight into the needs of vulnerable travellers when it comes to CAV technology.
