Air France tests autonomous baggage tractor at Toulouse Airport In partnership with Charlatte Autonom and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport, Air France is testing an autonomous tractor to transport baggage. Testing of the AT135 baggage tractor began on 15 November and involved the operation of the vehicle between the baggage sorting area and aircraft. Charlatte Autonom, a subsidiary of Charlatte Manutention and NAVYA, developed the tractor. Agents from Groupe 3S are supervising the vehicle. Air France and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport have integrated the flight operations and infrastructure for the testing. Toulouse-Blagnac Airport executive board chairman Philippe Crébassa said: “This test is a concrete step to designing the Smart Airport: more innovative, connected and more efficient for our customers. “It was only natural that this world-first took place at Toulouse Airport, the pioneering city of aviation.” The vehicle features intelligent sensors that can recognise the environment, identify obstacles in all directions and make decisions. Equipped with Lidar, cameras, GPS, an odometer and autonomous steering software, the vehicle is capable of navigating the airport independently. During its operations, the vehicle collects the baggage from the sorting area, where an agent loads the containers with bags. The vehicle then takes the baggage to the pre-programmed destination where the aircraft is present. The agents near the aircraft unload the containers and the vehicle returns to the baggage sorting area. Air France IT & Tech Innovation head Vincent Euzeby said: “By facilitating the use of an autonomous baggage tractor and perfectly integrating it into its operational processes, Air France’s ambition is to further optimise its operational performance

Villeurbanne, France, October 15, 2019 – 1:30 pm CEST – NAVYA (FR0013018041 – NAVYA), a leading company in autonomous driving systems, won two of the three awards granted at the first world challenge organized by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) dedicated to the actors specialized in autonomous passengers transportation on limited routes – first mile/last mile – at reduced speed in an urban environment. This challenge is part of Dubai’s commitment to accelerate the adoption of intelligent mobility solutions to achieve the objective of making 25% of the transport system autonomous by 2030. The Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport attracted multiple companies and academic institutions from around the world to conduct autonomous driving scenarios and simulations in Dubai. Launched in February 2018, the objective of the challenge is to transport people on limited routes – first mile/last mile – at reduced speed, to ensure connections from public transport, parking areas to different sites. These experiments were carried out under extreme climatic conditions specific to the region. The various tests performed assessed the reliability and adaptability of the systems in a variety of situations: emergency stop, obstacle overcoming and management of various traffic scenarios such as, traffic signals, pedestrian crossing, road works, or roundabout. After being selected in the “leader” category as one of the 5 finalists from a total panel of 15 participants, NAVYA, which is positioned in this market segment, won two of the three awards granted: “best Endurance & Reliability” and “best Consumer Experience”. These awards confirm the technological advance and added value of the solutions developed by NAVYA and reinforce the company’s ambition in this geographical area where next year’s World Expo 2020 will take place. These awards are accompanied by financial allocations of $1 million each that will enable the Company to strengthen its R&D activities with a view to further developing its level 4 autonomous driving systems to become the leading player in the supply of vehicles specialized in the transport of people and goods. On this occasion, NAVYA’s COO Jérôme Rigaud stated: « We are very proud to have won the “best Endurance & Reliability” and “best Consumer Experience” awards in this global challenge. This success illustrates the technological expertise and differentiating nature of the solutions developed by NAVYA. We would like to thank the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority for organizing this competition and also acknowledge the unfailing commitment of our teams, which was a decisive asset in obtaining this award. »

Geraldton to welcome driverless bus A driverless bus will shuttle passengers through central Geraldton for several months starting in April. Dubbed the RAC Intellibus, the futuristic vehicle will allow residents and tourists in WA’s Mid West to experience driverless technology for the first time. Starting at the Geraldton Visitor Centre, the bus will travel a 2.6km route along the foreshore, Marine Terrace Mall, Town Square, Rocks Centre, and the Museum of Geraldton. City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn described the visit as a “huge opportunity for the region” and a “fantastic outcome for Geraldton. “This experience is a huge coup for Geraldton and we know both our community and visitors alike will love the addition to our CBD,” Mr Van Styn said. “Not only are we embracing state of the art technology, but this will be fantastic for tourism and marketing of the Mid West. “I can already envisage the Intellibus will be utilised significantly - especially during peak times such as cruise ship visits.” RAC executive general manager advocacy and members, Patrick Walker, said regional areas “present unique road safety and mobility challenges”. “That’s why engaging these communities is a priority, to help us all better understand and prepare for the changing nature of transport,” Mr Walker said. “Human error is the cause of the vast majority of road deaths and serious injuries, so helping to safely transition to driverless technology sooner could help save hundreds of Australian lives and prevent thousands of serious injuries.” An RAC spokeswoman said passengers would learn about road safety and observe how the Intellibus interacts with other road users including motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. Since being launched in South Perth in 2016, the RAC Intellibus has transported more than 16,000 passengers across more than 24,770km in autonomous mode. An eight-week visit to Busselton last year marked the first time the Intellibus had been to regional WA.
