CETC has embarked on a comprehensive zero-emission urban transport strategy based on lightweight electric vehicles, which it is piloting in Cambridge for progressive deployment across the world. It has started by providing an e-bike shuttle service for commuters from Cambridge Park & Rides to major employment hubs around the city like Addenbrooke's/Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Science Park. This service is aimed at converting non-cyclists to the benefits of assisted cycling, as well as reducing car journeys and congestion.
Parallel with this immediate fix, CETC is developing an all-weather electric Cambridge Citi-Pod for mass deployment and the first prototype imported from Australia will be unveiled in September 2017. The Citi-Pod conforms to EU regulations for e-bikes, qualifies for use on existing road and cycleway infrastructure and can be driven by all ages from 14+ without a licence, tax or insurance.
The Citi-Pod will have progressive stages of autonomy over a 3-5 year programme, building on IOT and AI technology currently evolving for the transport sector.
Cambridge Electric Transport (CET) and Robik AI have formed a partnership to develop and test autonomous operation capabilities for lightweight vehicles.
