Renault and Waymo explore AV service in Paris

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Renault and Waymo are hoping to establish an autonomous mobility service between Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport and La Déense, a business district in France’s capital Paris.

Valérie Pécresse, president of the Paris region, says the service could “play a key role for the mobility of Île-de-France inhabitants, tourists and therefore for the international attractiveness of our region, which is investing €100 million to develop the infrastructure on which autonomous vehicles will operate.”

Both parties are hoping to conclude the project in time for the Paris Olympic Games from 26 July to 11 August.

This initiative is part of a series of experiments selected by the French government to familiarise people with autonomous vehicle (AV) systems called SAM (safety and acceptability of autonomous driving and mobility).

In July, Renault began working with Waymo and Nissan to develop autonomous mobility services in France and Japan.
