During mobility week, the IMS member Sales-Lentz inaugurated several autonomous shuttles which will circulate in phase of test during 3 months. One in Luxembourg-City between Pfaffenthal and the funicular, the others in Contern between the station and the industrial area.
In Contern, the town counts on public/private partnerships to ensure the financing of this shuttle which will cost 200 000 euros per year. In Luxembourg, it's a pilot project in collaboration with the European Commission and a private company that does not commite the municipality.
In these vehicles of the French brand Navya and insured by another IMS member AXA, there is no driver! The circuit is preprogrammed and driving 100% autonomous and electric. But the shuttle has already proven itself in several European cities like Lyon, Copenhagen and Geneva.
A great way for Sales-Lentz to get a head start on mobility, put into practice the recommendations of the Third Industrial Revolution and develop innovative savoir-faire.
