The BMBF-funded joint project UrbANT - Urban, Automated, User-Oriented Transport Platform aims to develop, manufacture and test an individual, electrically driven micromobility vehicle that allows pedestrians in particular to carry heavy and large-volume goods safely and comfortably. The micromobility vehicle will be able to follow the user automatically, but also offer the potential for fully automated use without a human driver.

Within the project, the IfU is developing and integrating a follow-up function and the autonomous navigation of the micromobile in urban environments. By means of the following function to be developed, the micromobile is to be enabled to automatically follow a user (e.g. carry shopping home) and actively avoid surrounding traffic. With the autonomous navigation function, the micromobile will be able to cover distances automatically without a user. In doing so, it will completely register its surroundings through the sensor technology used and can thus, for example, perceive obstacles such as people and avoid them.
