Presentation on 03 October


The mobile future is here! After two years of research and development work, the time had come: the MONOCAB hit the road!

On Monday, October 3, the MONOCAB drove for the first time in the open air - in "Test Field 01" in Extertal near Bösingfeld.


On display was not only the "tech demonstrator" on the track, but also the original "design mockup" of the cabin, accompanied by an exhibition of the project partners.

The MONOCAB is a rail vehicle that runs self-stabilized on only one rail. This means that a single-track line can be used in both directions at the same time. The concept allows completely new ways of mobility by rail - and makes use of old ways, as it reactivates disused or unused lines.

In the MONOCAB OWL project, two test vehicles are being developed, built and tested on a scale of 1:1. The project participants (TH OWL, FH Bielefeld, Fraunhofer IOSB INA and Landeseisenbahn Lippe e. V.) invited to visit the project results! Visitors could expect: rides of the test vehicle "Thusnelda" on the track, the visit of the design demonstrator, explanations of the MONOCAB technology as well as an informative exhibition of our partners.


Livestream from the event


Direction and technical implementation of the live team: Ilya Nowodworski - TwoWest

Moderation: Julia Ures

"As a child from the village, I know about the peculiarities of mobility in rural areas. For special needs, experiences or errands - also for work, of course - you have to get from A to B, but how with infrequent bus service, disused rail lines and few carpooling opportunities...?!
Especially because I know the challenges of mobility in rural areas from my own experience and live in the countryside again, I am very much looking forward to the demonstration of the MonoCab OWL. Rethinking mobility not only creates flexibility to overcome distances, it also creates head!"

The REGIONALE2022 supported us with the press work

The MONOCAB OWL research project was a guest on the premises of the Holz Bröker company.
We would like to express our sincere thanks for the extraordinary support and the extensive preparations for the presentation!


Many thanks also to alberts architekten, who helped us with the planning of the site and the roofing.
