A pioneer in autonomous driving
This demonstration follows the one in Royal Djurgården, Stockholm in 2020, when Keolis teamed up with the same partners to demonstrate remote control and supervision of autonomous electric vehicles using 5G technology.
From mid-January to the end of May 2021, Keolis also tested a Navya-built autonomous electric shuttle service in Gothenburg’s Lindholmen Industrial and Science park. In 2019, Keolis partnered with Volvo to demonstrate a 12-metre-long electric bus, which was able to park, wash and recharge autonomously at the Keolis depot in Gothenburg.
A pioneer in autonomous driving, Keolis trialled the world’s first autonomous vehicle in Lyon, France in 2016. Since then, Keolis has operated autonomous vehicles in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Sweden, the US and the UK, carrying 210,000 passengers and covering over 140,000 km. In parallel, Keolis is testing fully autonomous vehicles at its own test site closed to traffic in Châteauroux, France.
