Download the Call for Expressions of Interest

This Challenge is open to any designer or manufacturer of driverless shuttles with electric propulsion, with no nationality restriction. The performance that constitutes the Challenge will take place during the coming European ITS Congress (to be held in Strasbourg, France from June19 to 22, 2017). Each preselected candidate will have to operate its own shuttles along one route, around 2 km long, linking the territories of Kehl and Strasbourg cities, crossing the Rhine by an existing bridge. Candidates will operate their driverless shuttles according to one Specification, at separate times, with passengers. The whole package therefore will provide with an ephemeral service aimed at demonstration and evaluation. Compelling innovations, whether technical or in terms of service, will be awarded in two forms:

The Challenge Trophies based on the achievement of Specification and the observed deficiencies toward the specified requirements. Any candidate that will ensure the required service during all the allocated time spot and according to specifications of the different Challenge documents will be awarded a Challenge Trophy and an Achievement Certificate.

The People’s Choice Prize based on a multi-criteria assessment from the shuttle passengers, reserved to the candidates that obtain a Trophy. The deadline for submission of application forms is February 28, 2017
