Geoflex wins the DUBAI RTA Challenge with GAUSSIN and its new autonomous and 100% electric bus

A resolutely innovative technology that makes it possible to obtain its position very easily, in real time, anywhere in the world with an accuracy of few centimeters, easy to integrate, and robust, even in a sandstorm, are the assets that have enabled Geoflex to bring the best of the GNSS augmentation and to contribute to win this competition.

The world’s leaders were present at the challenge organized by RTA (Dubai Road Transport Authority): from the 65 pre‐selected actors, 2 winners share 3 awards of excellence (Sustainability and Energy, Durability and Reliability, Customers Experience). Geoflex is proud of its shared victory with its 100% French team in the category “Sustainability and Energy”.

Essential to ensure the autonomous bus navigation, the manufacturer GAUSSIN and the engineering company AKKA have been right on target by relying on Geoflex and its accurate, reliable and available positioning solution, real asset to equip the e‐AB bus, and make it evolves autonomously and safely, very easily, anywhere in the world. The vehicle was presented to professionals of the intelligent mobility sector in a worldwide exclusivity at the Dubai World Congressforself‐driving Transport, which took place in Dubai on October 15th and 16th 2019. Without driver and 100% electric, “e‐AB”, a real industrial bus based on the BOLLORE BLUEBUS product, is designed for the autonomous and electric transportation of people up to 50km/h for First Mile/Last Mile applications.

Romain LEGROS, CEO of Geoflex, is delighted with this new Award: “2019 has placed our teams and collaborations under the sign of victories: the first one at the CES Las‐Vegas this last January with an Innovation Award in the “Vehicle Intelligence and Self‐Driving Technology” category, following with this Award of Excellence in the “Leader” category at the RTA Dubai after 12 months of intensive selections. Geoflex has made the difference thanks to its innovative solutions, very performant and robust, easy to integrate and to use, 100% French and based on CNES (French Space Agency) patents.”
