Novel urban mobility choices are one of the biggest drivers behind the development of autonomous driving. A primary example is autonomous ride-hailing, a service based on shared rides in robo-taxis or robo-shuttles.
At CES 2019, ZF will unveil a steering wheel and pedal-free robo-taxi to show how its technologies enable new forms of urban mobility.
Users can hail the taxi using their smartphone or tablet and it will manoeuvre autonomously to pick them up. It can then chauffeur them to where they wish to go.
