UK PREMIERE FIRST DEMONSTRATION OF THE FULLY AUTONOMOUS, 100% ELECTRIC AND DRIVERLESS NAVYA ARMA SHUTTLE AT LONDON’S HEATHROW AIRPORT
Lyon, January 24, 2017,
NAVYA, the smart mobility specialist a pioneer in manufacturing autonomous vehicles, demonstrated its NAVYA ARMA fully autonomous and 100% driverless and electric shuttle in an exclusive demonstration from the 24th until the 26th of January at the London Heathrow Airport’s Electric and Autonomous Showcase.
Since first deploying the NAVYA ARMA in France in late 2015, the vehicles have transported more than 100,000 people and have grown to have a fleet of 30 NAVYA ARMAs in use in seven countries around the world.
The arrival of NAVYA in the UK follows the successful launch of the NAVYA ARMA in the USA. Last week saw the roll-out of the shuttle on the public roads of Las Vegas’ downtown Fremont East Entertainment District following its introduction at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and it is currently operating at MCity, the University of Michigan’s unique test site for connected and automated vehicles.
“Breaking into the UK market is one of our major objectives so we are delighted to be here at London’s Heathrow Airport today to demonstrate our innovative smart mobility solution. Autonomous technology will certainly be a part of the airports of the future. Autonomous vehicles will allow airports to deal with certain flow issues currently experienced and to thus improve the passenger’s airport experience,” said NAVYA VP Sales Henri Coron.
