It will directly contribute to the innovative mobility policy of Lyon metropolis, in particular by fluidifying this strategic 17 km long axis, whose traffic exceeds 100,000 vehicles per day.

The challenges for the Lyon metropole involve the reduction of car traffic and induced pollutions, the maintenance of accessibility and the organization of mobility by ensuring the complementarity of the modes. In this context, plans are made to facilitate the daily life of carpool users by making the offers of multiple operators simple and transparent. Carsharers will also benefit from road sections that will be allocated and controlled in a dynamic manner.

Within this project, LCE focuses on 3 main use cases:

  • The development of a platform building on blockchain technology which enables the putting together of carpooling offers. The objective is to maximize matching chances for individual vehicles by maintaining the customer experience of users within their usual operators.
  • Dynamic regulation of traffic corresponding to the activation / deactivation of the road sections dedicated to carsharing according to the traffic conditions.
  • The development of a control-sanction solution which enables identifying, warning and raising the awareness in order to identify, warn and educate violators regarding the respect of road instructions on these dedicated roads.

The R&D approach will be carried out at the same time as the requalification of the A6-A7 motorway as an urban boulevard. The first field experiments from the LCE project will be launched in the second half of 2020.
