Imagination, in smart mobility matter, is the only limitation!
FPInnovations is fully committed to the development of smart vehicles, and has been for quite some time! FPInnovations was already developing smart vehicles before the expression became popular.
Smart vehicle technology has developed significantly since our very first research on heavy-duty vehicles in 1980. But it is on this solid base that our team continues to build, leading us toward the most highly innovative sustainable mobility concepts today. Although it is always very present in the technological development of heavy-duty vehicles, our team is also working on innovative concepts for electric and smart urban and institutional mobility.

ELECTRIC SHUTTLE EXPERTISE
CALGARY AIRPORT AUTHORITY
At the end of 2013, Calgary Airport launched an international call for tenders for the development and manufacturing of a compact electric transportation system consisting of 20 electric shuttles with a unique design.
It was a major challenge, as the design, prototype manufacturing, testing and delivery of the 20 shuttles was to be done within 30 months! FPInnovations’ PIT Group gathered four Quebec partners (Precicad, Kargo, Institut du vehicule innovant and Deutschman Design) to respond to the call for tenders and win it.
The shuttle supply chain is mainly composed of Quebec companies, on top of the five main partners. FPInnovations plans to use the same platform for a fully autonomous electric shuttle.
