Transpolis Innovates to grow mobility

Every day, our Transpolis engineers and PhD teams’ work to improve mobility without ever compromising safety.

Transpolis regularly teams up with industrial partners, local/national authorities, and university research labs (e.g., Gustave Eiffel University).

ENA Project

Autonomous Shuttle Experiments

In 2018, the French government ran EVRA (autonomous road vehicle experiment), a call for projects as part of a national strategy to develop autonomous vehicles. This led to a project called ENA (Expérimentations de Navettes Autonomes) sharing the podium along with other winning submission.

ENA, implemented by a consortium of 12 academic, industrial and territorial partners, consists in two experiments, one in autonomous shuttle services to complement an existing urban transport network and the other in transport solutions for sparsely populated rural areas.


Interact with vehicles and infrastructures

A European project, C-ROADS aims to develop technologies to create an interface between vehicles and infrastructures.

Transpolis was in charge of the Validation working group, and performed tests on private proving grounds. In addition, Les Fromentaux, the new Transpolis test track was chosen as the French pilot grounds to test GLOSA, an app enabling interactive dialog between vehicles and connected traffic lights.

With several partners in France, C-ROADS launched COOPITS, an eco-driving app, in January 2021.


EPSA and the École centrale de Lyon Engineering School

Founded in 2002, the EPSA Team promotes motorsport within École centrale de Lyon, an engineering research university. Each year, 60 students collaborate to design and build a racing car for Formula Student, a student engineering competition held annually in the UK.

EPSA: “Thanks to Transpolis, we have access to a real urban mobility lab where we can test our prototypes. We know that the cars we build for Formula Student operate properly, but we need to test-drive them somewhere. The Transpolis track is the perfect place to ride, test the emergency braking system, but also to organise tests protocols to get the EPSA pilot’s license”.
