Russia : Beginning of tests of the first controlled tram

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced the start of testing of the first automated tram in Russia.

On Thursday, May 23, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin opened the Center for the Development of Electric Transport and Unmanned Technologies, where he announced the start of tests of the first automated tram in Russia.

He said: “We created this wonderful center specifically to continue developing innovative technologies in the field of transportation, and today we are launching several projects at the same time. The first project is a tracked tram, and this is the first stage of its launch. At the end of this year, it will carry passengers, and it will run at the end of 2025.” Without a supervised driver.” The Mayor of Moscow noted that transport in Moscow is undoubtedly the leading sector in terms of applying innovative technologies.

He added, "The best passenger trains, metro trains, trams, electric buses, and even river trams operate in Moscow. In addition, Moscow is developing world-class passenger services and an intelligent transportation system that ensures widespread traffic movement throughout the city."

In 2023, the Moscow Center for the Development of Unmanned Transport began the practical solution to the problem of regulating the movement of unmanned trams. It is scheduled to be launched in three phases. In the first stage, tests are carried out on a tram with an observer driver and a system to replicate its operation. In the next stage, the driverless driving system will assume control and decision-making tasks, and the driver will ensure that the tramway carries out its tasks. Test flights with passengers will begin on the 10th route from Kulakova Street to Shchukinskaya metro station. In the third and final phase, it is planned to ensure that the tramway moves completely without a driver, with passengers and without a supervisor.

It is expected that by 2027, more than 80% of tram cars will be equipped with an automatic control system.
