A fully operational public transportation service, 100% automated, with no human intervention, is now running at the Belle-Idee site in Geneva operated by TPG
In the framework of H2020 AVENUE and other mobility projects in Lyon, a permanent installation of V2I communication was conducted by FERACO and was fully integrated into the urban transport network of Greater Lyon. This installation will be managed by the operator Kéolis, partner in this installation, and is the first of its kind in France.
A subsidiary of the FAYAT group, the leading independent French construction group, FARECO is one of the key players in new mobility with products at the cutting edge of innovation.
In this video, including more than half of the shots made with a drone and largely enriched with motion design, FARECO presents the NEXO Roadside Unit, which provides V2I communication to enhance the last-mile service on the Lyon Décines site.
NEXO presides over the movements of an autonomous shuttle, on open lanes where several thousand vehicles circulate daily.
On the 22nd of April 2021 Prof. Dimitri Konstantas (AVENUE Coordinator) has presented the AVENUE project results at the third European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving (EUCAD 2021). The presentation was titled “Deployment of public transportation services with autonomous vehicles: Lessons learnt from the Belle-Idée site”
Furthermore, the AVENUE consortium has also organized a virtual exhibition stand presenting various results of the project.
The AVENUE Project is proud to announce the first world-wide deployment of on-demand, door-to-door Automated Shuttles for public transport services from TPG at the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) Belle-Idée site with 78 virtual stops and 100% operator free
