Tests are due to begin in July and will be divided into several stages. Especially for the project, CAF has already equipped the five-section Urbos 3 tram, which is operated in Zaragoza, with a vision system including radars, lidars and video cameras.

Vision systems on trams

It is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply.

As Nacho Celaya, technical manager of the CAF unmanned transport project, told El Periodico newspaper, at the first stage, within six months, a positioning system will be tested in the depot, which involves determining the location of the tram in real time using GPS and video cameras.

According to him, Zaragoza and Oslo were chosen as test sites due to differences in climatic conditions.
