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.
