Navya: The Autonomous Shuttle That Goes On Open Roads

As Pascal Lecuyot (lead R&D Engineer at Navya), the technology of the Navya Arma is akin to the Google car. It distinguishes itself by being a shuttle that can carry up to 15 passengers and being readily available, with first orders being delivered by mid-November.  It will soon enable the transport of passengers on closed sites such as airports, hospitals, campuses and industrial sites.  Orders for this year include ten vehicles, with plans on selling more than a hundred next year.  The Arma is also compatible for open roads applications, such as first and last mile situations.
