BUS2Explore: Inspirational Workshops

For those keen on taking a closer look at certain topics, BUS2Explore has fascinating workshops. At a workshop by members of the Berlin mobility scene under the coordination of Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie, mobility experts on the stage will talk about 'Autonomous Driving - Status Quo and Vision'. As well as electromobility, driverless vehicles are among the main topics in the mobility industry. The workshop will examine how this theme is reflected in the bus industry and look at both current opportunities and challenges.
