This is CAPTN:
The CAPTN initiative aims to develop and implement an environmentally friendly, autonomous mobility chain for local public transport in Kiel and the surrounding area, which is to be expanded to Germany and the world in the future.
Numerous joint projects have dedicated themselves to this goal: CAPTN Förde 5G, CAPTN Förde Areal, CAPTN KI and CAPTN Flex were expected by different organizations and/or appropriate funding was requested. These include the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, the FuE GmbH of the Kiel University of Applied Sciences, the city of Kiel and individual researchers. The project consortia also include many regional and national companies such as Raytheon Anschütz, Addix, Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems GmbH and AVL Software and Functions.
The CAPTN office was created in 2022 as a contact point for all project partners. It has the task of maintaining an overview of the project landscape, creating structures, coordinating common interests, identifying possible gaps in relation to the vision and taking on internal and external communication for the CAPTN umbrella brand.
