JCDecaux Partners With Citroen & Accor To Invent Self-Driving ‘Mobility Platform’ For Urban Spaces

JCDecaux has joined forces with two other French companies, Citroën and Accor, to bring their shared vision for the future of urban mobility to life.

According to the press release, the common ambition of the newly formed ‘Urban Collëctif’ is to “optimise mobility so that everyone can reclaim urban spaces and significantly improve the quality of life”.

This ambition relies on an innovative concept dubbed Citroën Autonomous Mobility Vision, which combines a high-tech and universal mobility platform, The Citroën Skate.

Using autonomous, electric and agile Citroën technology, this disruptive, open-source urban mobility concept aims to decongest cities while also meeting citizens’ growing needs in terms of mobility, services, safety and wellbeing in cities.

The Citroën Skate platform can accommodate all compatible pods developed by a partner, thereby expanding mobility and service offerings.

The platform has three new service pods – Sofitel En Voyage, Pullman Power Fitness and JCDecaux City Provider – each offering a unique experience to explore cities in a new way.

Jean-Charles Decaux, co-CEO of JCDecaux, said: “Teaming up with public and private partners to develop innovative and useful solutions to sustainably improve city life is fully in line with JCDecaux’s mission.

“The result of a close collaboration with Citroën and Accor, The Urban Collëctif symbolises JCDecaux’s desire to continue to innovate and imagine the urban mobility services of the future.”
