- PAVE Europe aims to enlighten the public about the advantages offered by driverless on-demand transportation, among other aspects, and foster widespread awareness and acceptance of this transformative technology.
- As a member of the EU-funded project ULTIMO, Padam Mobility will seamlessly integrate its cutting-edge and autonomous-friendly on-demand technology into multiple autonomous vehicles, propelling the evolution of modern transport.
Padam Mobility, the provider of on-demand transportation software, was officially introduced as one of the first members of the non-profit organization PAVE Europe (Partner for Autonomous Vehicles Education) at the first General Assembly in late June. The in-person meeting, bringing together all members of PAVE Europe, was a momentous occasion where concrete project initiatives and the next steps were extensively discussed. This gathering held great significance in shaping the direction and progress of our collaborative efforts.
PAVE Europe aims to enlighten the public about the advantages offered by driverless on-demand transportation, taking into account all the factors that influence autonomous vehicles (AV) across social, legal, political, environmental, and technological domains. By addressing these various aspects, PAVE Europe members collectively strive to generate factual information about the operation of AV on demand, among other topics.
Padam Mobility has already gained valuable experience through its AV project “OL Vallée” in partnership with Keolis in Lyon. This project, supported by the predecessor of ULTIMO, Avenue, aimed to determine the optimal integration of autonomous vehicles into real-world traffic and identify the challenges that need to be overcome.
In the upcoming months, Padam Mobility, in collaboration with tpg in Geneva, will embark on another exciting AV service. This innovative venture involves the deployment of three automated vehicles within a mixed-traffic area of 0.38 km², covering more than 70 stops to flexibly connect various facilities within the Belle-Idée Estate, such as a hospital, a kindergarten and restaurants, as well as the traditional public transportation network. The project represents a significant step forward in providing efficient and convenient autonomous transportation solutions within the estate, enhancing connectivity and accessibility for all.
By joining forces with PAVE Europe, Padam Mobility strengthens its commitment to enlighten the public about the benefits of automated, driverless vehicles on demand within the context of public road transport. Through collaborative efforts and innovative solutions, Padam Mobility and PAVE Europe seek to create a future where AV seamlessly integrate into existing transportation networks, providing enhanced accessibility, efficiency, and sustainability.
