Keolis is collaborating with Ericsson to use 5G technology to remotely control and supervise autonomous vehicle fleets. The demonstration is part of the ‘Drive Sweden’ Strategic Innovation Program (SIP) whose members – including Keolis and Ericsson – collaborate in trialling 5G technology with automated vehicles.

The technology was showcased for the first time at the UITP World Congress held in Stockholm (Sweden), where visitors could remotely test drive a prototype vehicle made by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

The vehicle was located at the Ericsson headquarters in Kista 15 kilometres from Stockholmsmässan (Stockholm Exhibition Center), where the event is being held. This demo is an important milestone for Keolis, as it illustrates its expertise in autonomous vehicle operations and enables the Group to enhance its future mobility offer.
