Groupe Renault, alongside the City of Paris, unveiled its plan to develop new electric mobility offerings especially for the City of Lights.
Today with the Rouen Normandy Autonomous Lab (RNAL), we are starting to test on open roads an end-to-end autonomous mobility service. This is a first in Europe and it includes four electric Renault ZOE robo-vehicles equipped with sensors and embedded intelligence, a customer application to book the trip, a remote fleet control center, connected infrastructure and secure telecommunications networks.
Between now and the end of 2018, members of the public will be able to step inside autonomous ZOE vehicles placed on the road as part of Rouen Normandy Autonomous Lab. Groupe Renault is a partner in this ride-hailing shared-mobility trial, which it sees as the perfect opportunity to organize user tests on the interior layout of its future robot-vehicles.
Saving time and money while taking the stress out of travel is a dream that is probably shared by all regular travelers in Paris. How can travelers make the best choices for their journey, combining personal means of travel with public transport? Which digital tools will provide the best level of service? Groupe Renault is contributing its expertise to the m2i project in order to develop fair and efficient mobility in the Paris area.
Groupe Renault is innovating in its communication strategy with an original initiative: an international alternate reality game called “Mobility Theory”. Players of the new alternate reality game are plunged into Groupe Renault’s innovation strategy and get to find out more about tomorrow’s mobility – autonomous, connected and electric.
