On 29 March 2018, RATP Group, CEA, Iveco Bus and UITP organised the EBSF_2 Paris City demo event. The demonstration was held at the RATP Lagny bus depot, in the 20th arrondissement in Paris, to showcase the first fully autonomous bus parking in an underground environment.
The experiment is the culmination of a technological research project conducted by the demo team (RATP Group, CEA List and Iveco Bus) as part of EBSF_2, to investigate the potential of autonomous driving for intelligent garage procedures. Several points of interest were raised from the discussion with the audience gathered in Paris to experience this unique test, among them:
- Optimising available space in bus depots located in dense urban areas thanks to tighter vehicle parking made possible by automated systems
- Assisting bus drivers by means of advanced driving assistance systems
