The German Aerospace Centre (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt or DLR) has developed a prototype of a modular autonomous vehicle.
to acquire initial experience in using the system that picks up and sets down the capsules and are in close talks with potential manufacturers and operators.

A second, fully automated prototype capable of reaching speeds up to approximately 60 kilometres per hour is planned for 2024.

As part of the project, the DLR Institute of Vehicle Concepts has partnered with the Stuttgart Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines (FKFS), which is developing the drive train, and the Institute of Vehicle System Technology (FAST) and Institute for Information Processing Technology (ITIV) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), which have contributed the chassis and the electrical and electronic architecture. The Institute of Measurement, Control and Microtechnology (MRM) at Ulm University is responsible for the automation.
