̋SmartShuttle ̋, a visionary project for smart mobility
The pioneering project in the heart of Sion (CH) marks the first instance where fully autonomous, driverless and electric shuttles are operating on a daily basis in a city center location – both in pedestrian areas and on the open road – and are an integral part of the existing public transport network.
The two-year project taking place in Sion (CH) aims to provide an essential insight into the reality and challenges of integrating an autonomous fleet of vehicles into urban areas.
More than 25,000 people have been transported so far. The two so-called SmartShuttles have covered around 3,000 kilometers in the streets and alleyways of Sion.
