SAM-e on demand, Demand-Responsive Transport service in Brussels

The SAM-e (Smart Autonomous Mobility-electric) service allows all employees and visitors of Solvay (Brussels) to book a free ride on one of the autonomous on-demand shuttles of the STIB-MIVB. The shuttles are 100% electric and move with the help of several sensors and navigation systems, which scan the environment and detect any obstacles.

The service was tested for 4 months in cooperation with Solvay and STIB-MIVB. After this first step into the on-demand shared mobility of the future, Padam Mobility wants to transform the trial and offer DRT solutions that are 100% compatible with autonomous vehicles.

In the future, these shuttles will also run in the city, picking up passengers in areas that are currently not served by buses. They can take them to a bus or tram station. From there, passengers can continue their journey even further.
