From the 14th October to the 8th November 2019, throughout the Paris-Saclay urban campus, a panel of some 100 people will use Groupe Renault’s on-demand car service as part of the ‘Paris-Saclay Autonomous Lab’ project. This daytime service, using electric, autonomous and shared Renault ZOE Cab prototypes, will allow panelists to move freely around the Paris-Saclay urban campus, for everyday mobility: go to one of the schools or laboratories on the campus, head to lunch, play sports, etc. The service will run Monday to Friday, from 11am to 6pm, to best coincide with the user’s needs. Two vehicles will run around the Paris-Saclay urban campus throughout the entirety of the public trials.

One ZOE Cab equipped with
A large fore-wing door that spans the length of the ZOE’s interior, allowing immediate access to front and rear seats
A section cut-off from the rest of the car’s interior for the safety officer so passengers get a glimpse of the future of autonomous mobility – with neither operator nor driver on board
Car seats fitted with individual screens, speakers, and USB port, designed to create a private compartment for each passenger

One ZOE Cab equipped with
A larger rear door on the right-hand side for easier car access. The door is located on the right to ensure safely getting in and out of the car (pavement side only) with added ease
A modified interior with the front passenger seat facing backwards so passengers now ride face to face; this is in line with the service’s car-sharing ethos
Screens installed inside the car for all passengers to view and use on their trip
