Announcement: Deployment of the new Belle-Idee system

Fully automated on-demand, door-to-door public transport is a reality TODAY! The TPG are deploying at the Belle-Idee site of Hospital of Geneva the first ever service.

At the end of last year AVENUE recruited ioki to join the project and be the provider of the On Demand Mobility Platform.

The new system had the following goals:

  • integration of autonomous shuttles ✅
  • into Public Transport ✅
  • within a flexible On Demand System ✅
  • on public roads ✅

Today the hard work payed of! TPG, Navya and ioki had a joint GoLive in Geneva and it worked! They did a booking, the vehicle picked them up on time, they drove fully autonomous and were dropped of at the desired destination

For ioki – a DB company it is huge milestone, since they now have multiple Self Driving Software Providers (beside Navya also EasyMile) integrated into our platform to serve the different mobility needs. Who wants to be the next?
