Autonomous Tram

Together with their colleagues from the Faculties of Mechanical Engineering, Health Care Studies and Economics, the students of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art have designed the tram of the future. The project was created by Škoda Transportation and the students consulted their work with the company’s representatives. The students elaborated their vision of the future of urban railway transport in the inter-faculty educational project DESING+ organised annually by the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen.
