Groupe ADP has commenced driverless shuttle trials at Charles De Gaulle Airport in France.
The airport giant is running the pilot in collaboration with transport group, Keolis, and autonomous shuttle pioneer, NAVYA. The free pilot service at Roissypôle, the business district at the airport, is available to people with limited mobility until July, and is accessed using a smartphone QR code.
“NAVYA is delighted to be marking out the airport of the future together with Groupe ADP and Keolis. The airport of the future is based on smart and specially adapted mobility solutions that are able to communicate with the infrastructure that we have set up at Roissypôle with Groupe ADP. Airports are areas where the traffic is extremely concentrated and so it is really important to manage and optimise the flow. The aim of this trial is from now on, to provide a service that takes into account future deployments. Once again, NAVYA is showing that its fleets of autonomous shuttles are just as suited to improving the daily running of airports as they are to improving the overall passenger experience,” said NAVYA CEO Christophe Sapet.
