2nd AVENUE Plenary meeting

On November 7 and 8, Carlos and Kevin attended the second Plenary meeting of the H2020 Avenue project. It has been held in Lyon by the Keolis Group.

It was a great mix of social event and very intense working sessions.
The primary goal of the meeting for us was to kickstart WorkPackage 4 "Development, Adaptation and integration of Passenger Transport and in-, out-of-, vehicle services". As Workpackage leaders, we started by gathering technical requirements from our PTO's and presented the main results. The primary objective of Phase 1 (M6 to M18) is to create a solid base architecture that will allow us to build new services on top of it in the future.
We established the following Road-map which means we will start the first field tests of the AVENUE services no later than summer 2019!!!! We are very excited about that.
On the social side, we had the opportunity to visit Navya's factory. It was extremely interesting to see how the magic happens.
Keolis, Navya and the city of Lyon organised a visit and cocktail dinner at the city town hall which we must admin was very impressive.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Keolis, Navia, Sytral and the city of Lyon for the great organization and also for hosting this two days meeting.

It was a pleasure to see all the AVENUE consortium and to be able to have many constructive and exciting exchanges.
