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

The ENA project “Expérimentations de Navettes Autonomes” (Autonomous Shuttle Experiments)  is one of the two winning projects in the EVRA (Experimentation of the Autonomous Road Vehicle) call for projects launched by the government in 2018 as part of the national strategy for the development of autonomous vehicles. It is implemented by a consortium of 12 academic, industrial and territorial partners. It brings together one experiment in autonomous shuttle services to complement an existing urban transport network and one experiment to serve sparsely populated rural areas.

The project aims to respond to the issue of mobility everywhere and for everyone, by putting the needs and expectations of users in terms of mobility at the heart of the project. It aims to produce knowledge that will feed the common good and be shared with public authorities, socio-economic actors, communities and society to help the development of autonomous shuttles in the areas of safety, use and acceptability of systems and services.


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”.
