Urban Mobility Lab
THE ONLY URBAN MOBILITY LAB IN EUROPE
Growth in urban travel needs is fast outpacing the development of transport infrastructure. As stakeholders ranging from city administrations and transport companies to telecom operators and shared mobility companies consider a variety of alternatives to current transportation, the need is to identify business strategies that enable sustainable integrated urban mobility. Looking at the mobility system as a whole is necessary to make great leap in progress. Up until now, very little work has been done on how to integrate the technical, economic, social and policy considerations to create a viable mobility system that meets the dynamic needs of a changing world.
Our DNA is crystallized around 3 major elements:
- urban mobility whereas the vehicle is one of the essential components of the mobility system
- a systemic approach to innovation with a broad and involved ecosystem
- "smart" infrastructures.
Transpolis has been created to design and build a 200 acres urban mobility lab to innovate, test, showcase technologies and solutions from a wide range of strategic partners. This urban mobility lab is available in the Lyon region since end of 2018. The comprehensive year-round proving ground will be dedicated to experimentation of a very large variety of scenarios and use cases that are mandatory for the development of connected, automated and even autonomous vehicles (CAV technology).
Transpolis is a hub to design, test and showcase new technologies through systemic innovation and international partnerships at the crossroads of strategic activities : vehicles, energy, infrastructure and building, communication (IT, networks, IoT), e-commerce & delivery services.
A SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE WITH MANY AMBITIOUS PROJECTS
The TRANSPOLIS scientific council has been involved in the technical development of the platform and continues to define the guidelines for the evolution of the site. It is made up of some twenty experts from the company's shareholders.
