The Age of AI has begun
Artificial intelligence is as revolutionary as mobile phones and the Internet. By Bill Gates…
ATOS is a European non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of Autonomous Transportation Robotics Systems (Aerial VTOLs, Autonomous Road Vehicles, etc) together with the Open Systems servicing infrastructure for development of Regional and Smart Cities’ Urban Traffic Management for an integrated, sustainable and efficient European Network.
The mission of ATOS is to represent the industry corporations and individuals as well as academia circles, to facilitate presentation of the community views to EU regulators and policy makers, government and local officials, media, influencers, raise awareness and achieve acceptance in the society of the AI Technology transportation future in synergy with the newly introduced EU Green Deal.
Bring together industry and safety professionals, technology experts and regulators to share safety information and updates among the Autonomous Transport community.
Work closely with the European Commission, Regional and Local Authorities’ Organizations for implementation of the Association’s objectives.
Participate in regulatory meetings, rule-making working groups and committees in order to collaborate with state agencies, EU regulators and industry corporations.
Face the challenges and support the local authorities of the European cities in the Urban Traffic Management by introduction of the AI Technology industry solutions to achieve smart city mobility.
The eVTOL aircraft development is deemed to revolutionize the market of aviation and to reflect on urban mobility, air traffic management and the way smart cities will connect with the territory.
The Association is positioning itself to be a strong supporter of the European cities in adoption of the urban air mobility (UAM) services by inviting the industry to propose their plans for providing eVTOL aircraft, infrastructure, operational support, airspace integration and patronizes them in securing public awareness and acceptance.
Although many new cars feature technology that partially assists with driving, we still do not have fully self-driving cars available for purchase. In addition to perfecting the technology required for them, there are a number of factors standing in the way to a fully autonomous mobility.
The Association advocates for improvement of road infrastructure and vehicles-communication systems’ implementation in harmony with additional traffic law regulations thus responding to society expectations for a safe, smart and green transportation.
In Europe semi-autonomous trains have been in operation for several years. Lately, the number of countries performing trials with Grade of Autonomy 2 (GoA 2) with plans to integrate semi-autonomous trains into their mainline networks increases.
The Association aims to support and to promote GoA 4 trains prototypes currently in development, and advocate for starting fully-automated trials in Europe within 2023.
Considering that large part of shipping costs is related to human resources, autonomous shipping represents the future of maritime industry. Smart ships will revolutionize the landscape of ship design and operations and further reduce costs in a more and more interconnected logistic world.
The Association focuses to safety and security issues together with regulatory and infrastructure challenges to make autonomous passenger and cargo ships a reality.
