Intelligent Transport Systems combine electronics and information technology with transport engineering. Their design enables users to use road infrastructure and interfaces with other transport modes in a safe, efficient and "smart" manner. AK understands (intelligent) mobility systems as services of general interest whose design must be socially, ecologically, and democratically determined, but must under no circumstances be driven by corporate profit motives.

 

In its position paper, AK emphasizes that only a public transport system complemented by cycling and walking is an environmentally and climate friendly transport system. Regarding data protection, the GDPR does not offer sufficient protection for employees and consumers, when it comes to the exchange and utilisation of processed data from these systems. Furthermore, AK criticizes the exclusion of consumer rights issues with regard to safety and security, meaning that liability is ultimately borne by consumers.
