The Concept : 100 % AUTONOMOUS, DRIVERLESS AND ELECTRIC
« An electric, intelligent and autonomous shuttle at the service of mobility » Launched in October 2015, the NAVYA ARMA is a 100 % electric and autonomous transport vehicle. This innovating and intelligent driverless shuttle can transport up to 15 passengers and safely drive up to 45 km/h.
Entrusted to the best French specialists, its design is the fruit of ten years of research and expertise which allows it to achieve the highest level of autonomy possible: Level 5, making the NAVYA ARMA the first entirely autonomous series vehicle.
The NAVYA ARMA calls upon state of the art technologies, developed to ensure safety, comfort and performance.

Vidéo : NAVYA ARMA in action
Autonomous and flexible, the NAVYA ARMA does not require any driver or specific infrastructure.
Intelligent and reliable, it can adapt to any situation by avoiding the static and dynamic obstacles.
Environmentally friendly as it uses electrical energy, its batteries can be recharged by induction and can last from 5 to 13 hours according to the configuration and the traffic conditions.
The security constitutes a priority for the engineers of the NAVYA ARMA. The shuttle is equipped with state-of-the-art sensors that allows it to localize itself in the environment, detect obstacles on the road as well as traffic signs. It is also able to communicate with the outside (pedestrians, drivers…) through the use of signaling lights and screens.
The modern and symmetrical design of the NAVYA ARMA is in adequacy with its adaptive capability and the comfort of its movement.
Its interior layout was thought and conceived for the comfort of passengers, with which it communicates via display on touch panels as well as video and vocal information.
The closed and glazed frame of the vehicle ensures the safety of the passengers along with a 360° view of the outside.
Three pillars The technical design of the NAVYA ARMA resides on 3 transversal pillars: Perception, which enables the understanding of the environment in which the vehicle is located, detecting obstacles and anticipating the displacements. Decision, which computes and determines its itinerary and trajectory. Navigation, which applies and follows the most optimal route computed for the vehicle.
State of the art multi-sensor technology The NAVYA ARMA is equipped with state of the art sensors capable of communicating between themselves and fusing their data to refine the decision making of the vehicle.
3d perception that maps the environment, allowing a precise positioning and ensure obstacle detection.
Communication between a GPS sensor and a base station to determine at any moment the precise position of the vehicle.
Measures the displacement and the wheels speed to estimate the velocity of the vehicle and confirm its position.
Obstacle detection and estimate their position in regards to the vehicle. Analysis of the environment (road signs, traffic lights) and information extraction.
The applications: Private and Public sites
The NAVYA ARMA offers multiple innovating transport solutions as to optimize the transportation of personnel, visitors or service agents on private sites. Depending on the legal framework, it can also circulate on open road and pedestrian zones, in particular to enhance mobility on the first and last mile.
The NAVYA ARMA is the answer to major challenges of private sites of considerable size by offering adaptive solutions to companies who wish to improve the working conditions of their staff, optimize their transportation system or reduce their carbon emission.
Flexibility The NAVYA ARMA does not require any specific infrastructure to function. The driverless technology allows for quick modification of the various paths to take. Adaptive, it suits itself to the needs, constraints and specificities of each customer.
Productivity gain The NAVYA ARMA was conceived to optimize the performance of businesses by improving the flow of displacement of on-site employees. The fleet of autonomous vehicles offers a higher frequency and thus reduce the waiting and transport time. With this, it reduces the cost linked to transportation as well as the variable costs.
Responsibility and Societal Impact 100 % electrical, the NAVYA ARMA does not produce any CO2. The positive impact towards the planet is an answer to the various CSR policies as well as growing company pledges towards sustainable development.
Culture of Innovation
Actor in a dynamic line of business, NAVYA cultivates innovation. In a startup mindset, it encourages new ideas and open public speaking of its contributors.
Convinced of the saying << Unity makes strength >>, NAVYA surrounds itself of complementary and sophisticated skills, and encourages synergy between its different teams.
Sense of responsibility
Conscious of the security challenges linked to its activity, NAVYA is committed on the quality and reliability of its solutions, along with its collaborators in whom there is full confidence.
A positive mindset
NAVYA is a motivated, close-knit, multicultural and heterogeneous team. Rich from this diversity, NAVYA brings together its collaborators around a common project.
Large cities and agglomerations are developing massively. A study of the ONU claims that by 2030, the city population should pass 60% of world population, and 70% by 2050. This galloping urbanization implies the birth of political and lifestyle changes: Development of green transportation, car-share services… However, the current solutions cannot answer the challenges and opportunities posed by growing urban flows.
« The world of tomorrow is being built today »
We are witnessing an uproar of innovation in various fields and sectors: digital revolution, exploration and exploitation of new clean and renewable energies.
Confined for far too long to literature and science fiction, autonomous vehicles form a major technological break. In less than 10 years, cities will host the first driverless cars. Studies tend to claim that by 2055, autonomous vehicles will surpass personal vehicles. This market, estimated at billions of dollars in the next few years, therefore presents a strategic issue of the 21st century. It represents the ongoing revolution, sets the technological standard of the world of tomorrow and opens new perspective.

The road to come
In a time where driverless projects and technologies are multiplying, the relevance of electric and autonomous vehicles is undeniable. In the dawn of a new era of transportation of people and goods, NAVYA has given itself the mission of participating in the sustainable transformation of lifestyles by reinventing mobility. The future changes in legal framework will soon allow its shuttles on open road and urban centers.
