The European Bus System of the Future 2 (EBSF_2) project capitalizes on the results of the previous EBSF projectAs the former, EBSF_2 is aimed at developing a new generation of urban bus systems by means of new vehicle technologies and infrastructures in combination with operational best practices, and testing them in operating scenarios within several European bus networks. 

The distinctive factor of EBSF_2 is the consortium’s ambition to improve the image of the bus through solutions for increased efficiency of the system...


EBSF_2 Helsinki demo showcase - Innovations for ebuses energy efficiency

The EBSF_2 Helsinki demonstration team cordially invites you to the demo event taking place in Helsinki, Finland, on Wednesday 7 March starting at 12.00. The event is hosted by Helsinki Region Transport HSL and takes places at their premises.

The demonstration in Helsinki is mainly focusing on a drivers’ assistance system that provides real-time guidance and feedback on current speed to drivers, taking into account vehicle’s en-route position compared to scheduled position, speed limit and the travelling comfort of passengers via recommendations on the intensity of acceleration and deceleration. While saving energy, the system will improve the accuracy of the service and the riding comfort. Energy efficiency is also investigated through intelligent auxiliaries management.

Participants are invited to join a ride on electric bus to a quick-charging station and attend a charging event.
