AVENUE – Autonomous Vehicles to Evolve to a New Urban Experience : an H2020 funded project opening the way for adoption of Autonomous Vehicles in public transportation.

H2020 AVENUE Project

Autonomous vehicles promise to be the next revolution in transportation, changing drastically how people move and make use of transport vehicles. Autonomous vehicle transportation will have an even higher impact and will provide more services when used in the frame of public transport services, where they should find their first users in suburban areas, which are less well served by traditional transportation networks.

In AVENUE’s vision of the future public transport in urban and suburban environments, autonomous vehicles will revolutionise the way citizens use public transportation, by making time-tables and fixed bus stop obsolete, and by offering a service that will allow passengers to call and hop a ride at any time, at their doorstep for example, and deposit them as close as possible to their destination.

Towards this vision and with demonstrators implemented for 4 years in 4 European cities (Copenhagen, Geneva, Luxembourg and Lyon), the AVENUE project aims to validate the advantages that autonomous vehicles will offer to public transportation, linked with new innovative passenger service and guaranteeing road and passenger safety. It also aims to identify the issues, barriers, societal changes and economic consequences of the introduction of autonomous vehicles in the public transportation services’ offer.
