Echosmile: innovation for cross-border urban mobility

The Geneva Office of Promotion of Industries and Technologies (OPI) and Archamps Technopole launch echosmile, an urban mobility project featuring collective, autonomous and on-demand shuttles. The ultimate goal is to propose a Swiss-French border crossing in the coming years.

The Interreg France-Switzerland European Territorial Cooperation Program has just given the go-ahead for the financing of echosmile, an innovative collective mobility project aimed at studying and developing an autonomous shuttle service on demand at the Plan-les-Ouates and Archamps Technopole sites. Supported by the European Union, the Confederation and the Canton of Geneva, the project will start in September 2018 and will end in August 2021.
