FPInnovations has partnered with Motrec International Inc., Technoparc Montréal, ABB Inc., and Ericsson Canada Inc. to develop an electric autonomous shuttle, adapted to Canadian winter conditions. Technologies to be integrated into the shuttle include vision, object recognition, artificial intelligence, navigation systems, battery management and automatic recharging, as well as vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-user and vehicle-to-infrastructure telecommunication systems. The first series of shuttles will be implemented at Technoparc Montréal before being integrated into the public transit network. Technoparc Montréal will be the first demonstration site.
