Transdev, a leading operator and global integrator of mobility solutions is partnering with ZF, a global leader in driveline and chassis technology as well as active and passive safety technology, and e.GO, the manufacturer of electric vehicles. Together, the partners are developing a new shared mobility solution by integrating the autonomous driven e.GO Mover shuttle with the operating system by Transdev. The e.GO Moove GmbH joint venture is providing the e.GO Mover, a fully electric, connected and automated shuttle. ZF is equipping this people mover with electric drive systems, steering systems and brakes as well as ZF’s ProAI central computer (using artificial intelligence) and sensors which enable automated driving functions.
Transdev, through its global Autonomous Transport System (ATS by Transdev) will provide its supervision system, connected infrastructure and client application. The partners’ integrated solution will offer the market’s best quality of service and overall passenger experience while ensuring safety of passengers, which remains the first priority of both partners. The partners will start working together immediately to provide a fully functional solution by 2020, with priority markets in France and Germany.
