H2 2019 highlights

- – World premiere at Toulouse-Blagnac airport with the experimentation in real conditions of the AUTONOM TRACT vehicle, an autonomous luggage tractor developed in collaboration with Charlatte Manutention for the transportation of goods.
2020 will be an opportunity for NAVYA to start an experiment on its shuttle and the TRACT vehicle in full level 4 autonomy, i.e. without a safety operator on board.
From an operating standpoint, NAVYA will continue the worldwide deployment of its passenger shuttles and the testing of its TRACT vehicle, which began in 2019, in parallel with the deployment of its technology on one or two additional platforms in 2020.
To achieve this, NAVYA will strengthen its R&D teams and expand its geographical presence, particularly in Asia-Pacific.
 Level 4 refers to an autonomous driving situation within a limited context and pre-defined situation, the vehicle is able to move without a safety operator on board.
