CATS Project Presentation

Project concept & objectives

The CATS project is built around the CRISTAL system. Its main innovation is to be possibly used of two different manners: as an individual or as a collective transport mode. Three testing site are full partners of CATS: Strasbourg (F), Ploiesti (RO) and Formello (I). The Cristal system has been conceived to be implemented in urban environment with the minimum of infrastructures or physical constraints. Its main goal is to be adaptable to different kind of mobility demands that are usually taken into account by private cars.

The CATS project, based on the CRISTAL technology and system design and demonstration is dealing with:

  • an innovative transport system (three possible use, platooning technology…), increasing other public transports’ use by feeding them;
  • a new dimensioning and Integration methodology (VOLTair);
  • some Electric vehicles, silent and zero emissions well adapted to urban environment and fully accessible;
  • stations design and building integrating all aspects of intermodality (infrastructure, localisation, comfort, effectiveness, communication, information);
  • adaptability of the transport offer to all type of passengers (elderly, disabled, children, tourists needing travel guidance…).

CATS System:

  • Specific vehicles and stations, adapted to self service,
  • Appropriated system of management and exploitation,
  • System fitting with a global strategy of mobility transport and car park management,
  • Integration and supporting measures.

CATS Vehicle:

  • Compact (about 3,3 meters long),
  • Of 6 persons capacity,
  • Non polluting and silent,
  • Able to be used in manual driving (self service) or in convoys (platooning or towing without contact) and remote controlled by local operator,
  • Fully accessible.
