Smart Parking, Big Data, pedestrians’ safety, a driverless shuttle… those solutions were launched in Issy-les-Moulineaux for a period of tests, in collaboration with Colas, Cisco, Indigo and Transdev.

On March 6, in front of a big audience attracted by this event, André SANTINI, Mayor of Issy-les-Moulineaux and Member of Parliament, with high representatives of the funding entity “Societé du Grand Paris” and other project partners (Cisco, Colas, Indigo and Transdev), launched and presented to the press the pilot aiming to show how new solutions exist to promote sustainable and modern solutions for urban travels.


This experiment is part of one of the most ambitious European projects around mobility, the Grand Paris Express, will lead to the construction of an automated metro in the Paris Region up to 2030. This project will highly improve the public transports offer, but it will make necessary to do many road works to build more than 200 km of metro and 68 new stations. Its impact of congestion may be unpredictable and it makes necessary to find solutions to avoid congestion and any parking issues.


To this end, the responsible parties of the project, the “Société du Grand Paris” and the Paris Transport Association (STIF) launched a call for solutions called « the Great Paris for Mobility » (« Grand Paris de la Mobilité »), to test new solutions around building sites of the Grand Paris Express.





Being Issy-les-Moulineaux one of the first Cities to be impacted, it was chosen as one of the first locations to run tests. Starting from existing infrastructure (parking, roads, sidewalks) and moving forward through innovative (sensors, big data, driverless shuttle) and Information and Communication Technologies (dynamic alerts and information via SMS, applications for smartphones, open data for parking), the tests « So Mobility » propose an unseen intermodal urban path, consisting of:


  • - Sensors for on-street parking places;
  • - A mobile application, available on AppStore and Google Play, developed  by the French start-up ParkingMap, proposing the availability in real time of on-street and off-street parking spots and multimodal paths, also exploiting real time data of bike sharing and public transports (tramway and urban trains);  
  • - Publication on the Issy Open Data portal of the data in real time of on-street parking spots availability, to allow application and services developers, such as Waze, ViaMichelin, Mappy or any other raising start-up, to include this on their services; 
  • - A driverless electric shuttle, located at ile Saint-Germain to allow drivers parking there to reach easily the nearest tramway or urban train (Issy Val de Seine) stations;  
  • - The building of a path for pedestrians’ safety, co-created with citizens.
