The awarding of a trial period to Navya is the result of a request for innovation as part of a new initiative from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages all the airports situated in the two states, including JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty International Airport.

It represents the first phase of what may become a larger initiative to use fleets of autonomous shuttles platooned together to better connect passengers to their destinations in an airport environment.

The two Navya shuttles will undergo an initial trial period of four days from October 17th to October 21st, 2022, as part of a pilot project that will take place in a specific parking area of the airport.

During that time various configurations will be put to the test, including the platooning of the Navya shuttles.

The autonomous shuttles will be operated by an on-board safety operator at all times and supervised by Navya’s control center in Michigan. The vehicles have eight lidar sensors and the pilot will be conducted in an area of the parking lot closed to the general public.

“This demonstration is an opportunity to evaluate and test new and emerging technology to improve our customer experience. We continue to see the importance of offering customers innovative, and world-class services in response to their needs.”
Kevin O’Toole, Port Authority Chairman

“The Port Authority has been laser-focused on cutting-edge technological advancements, and we are happy to be participating in this first-of-its-kind exploration of autonomous vehicle use in an airport application. Our innovation group is also in touch with other transit and airport agencies around the country to establish best practices in the use of autonomous vehicles to provide 21st century transportation options in the region.”
Rick Cotton, Port Authority Executive Director

“We are delighted to be able to conduct a trial at an airport, which at the same time represents a first step in our collaboration with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Navya’s shuttles are adapted to a large number of use cases, and airports represent a good case in point. Not only do our shuttles offer a solution for the transportation of people, but our Tract also offers the same for the transportation of goods. The trial will also provide an opportunity to demonstrate once again the strength of our hypervision technology. Our mastery of remote and platooning fleet management is already established in France, and we will be taking a further step forward by introducing it in the US.”
