Autonomous shuttle developed by an H2020 transport project tested in Brussels

Creation date: April 2, 2019

Are you in Brussels this week? Then don't miss the opportunity to test an autonomous shuttle developed by the H2020 transport project AVENUE.

The demonstrations will run from 09:30 to 19:30 on Wednesday, 3 April in front of the main European Commission building (Rue de la Loi 200, 1049 Bruxelles).

The EU-funded project is already operating mini-fleets of autonomous electric buses in low- to medium-demand areas of four cities – one each in Copenhagen, Geneva, Luxembourg and Lyon.

Autonomous vehicles are, of course, already in operation at sites around the world, but typically they are shuttles running along a predefined route between two specific locations. In AVENUE, the aim is to provide a service that will collect users on demand, add stops at request and optimise routes between these stops.
