The Automated Road Transport Systems (ARTS) is an urban mobility concept based on two ideas: car sharing and automated capabilities with door-to door solutions. In this paper, a description of the integration of the last large demonstration (3 months) in the San Sebastian city, with a risk evaluation study, is presented. The main safety issues regarding to the proposed track and vehicles are addressed, but considering the maximum speed allowed per segments and the comfortable accelerations of the passengers, in order to do not present unacceptable risks. The modifications have been carried out in the infrastructure, in order to adapt the new vehicles performance in the future smart cities. A description of the general control architecture and technical/functional specifications of the ARTS involved in the demonstrator is presented. This paper describes the achievements and results of this demonstration, showing the viability of this kind of vehicles in a near future.
