Autonomy allows us to present our charging infrastructure solutions to offer alternative mobility to communities and private players. As a French industrialist, Lafon wishes to promote charging solutions designed, developed and produced in France.
We expect during this edition to be able to discuss with organizations, companies and communities concerned with setting up infrastructures in the context of the energy transition.
In 2019, we participated in the Autonomy Show which allowed us to connect with different French and international alternative mobility players.
We hope that the 2020 edition will be as rich!
Sébastien MAZZOCCO – Head of Alternative Energies Division
Autonomy digital 2020 is THE exhibition for new mobility. CBox aims to bring more safety to users of shared bikes and scooters, a booming sector. So it makes sense for us to be present at this event.
This show is the perfect opportunity to put CBox in the spotlight, present our products and meet players in our sector. It is a unique moment during which we will be able to exchange ideas and create partnerships.
Being in full development phase, our objective is to find partner customers who will allow us to test our solution before its next commercialization.
Florian Boudzoumou – CTO of C-BOX
Le salon Autonomy nous permet de présenter nos solutions d’infrastructure de recharge pour proposer une mobilité alternative aux collectivités et acteurs privés. En tant qu’industriel français, Lafon souhaite promouvoir les solutions de recharge conçues, développées et produites en France.
Nous attendons de cette édition de pouvoir échanger avec des organisations, entreprises et collectivités soucieuses de mettre en place des infrastructures pour une mobilité alternative dans le cadre de la transition énergétique.
Nous avions participé en 2019 au Salon Autonomy qui nous avait permis de nous connecter à différents acteurs de la mobilité alternative français et internationaux.
Nous espérons que l’édition 2020 sera aussi riche !
Sébastien MAZZOCCO – Responsable Pôle Alternative Energies
Autonomy digital 2020 est le salon référence des nouvelles mobilités. CBox vise à apporter plus de sécurité aux utilisateurs de vélos et trottinettes partagés, un secteur en plein essor. Il est donc logique pour nous d’être présent à cet événement.
Ce salon est l’occasion rêvée pour mettre CBox en lumière, présenter nos produits et rencontrer des acteurs de notre secteur. C’est un moment unique pendant lequel nous pourrons échanger et créer des partenariats.
Etant en pleine phase de développement, notre objectif est de trouver des clients partenaires qui nous permettront d’éprouver notre solution avant sa commercialisation prochaine.

She studied civil engineering at the University of Twente. She has over 15 years of experience in different areas, from digital parking to city parking management. In her daily work she often acts as an intermediary between government and market parties. For eight years she was the Chair of Vexpan, Platform for Parking in the Netherlands.
We have always exhibited at Autonomy with our group Mobivia-Via Id alongside numerous start-ups in new mobility. Autonomy is an important meeting to stay in touch with our customers, meet prospects and partners, but above all to discover the market’s most recent innovations.
We have, for a few months now, been presenting our new range of Flex bikes – which include numerous updates inspired by the learning from the 23 cities we supply, including Paris. We have evolved our services to better respond to the new challenges of our customers, needs of cities, operators and users. We are therefore looking forward to presenting these innovations and to receive market returns on them.
Because the COVID-19 crisis prevents us from meeting in person, and most of the sector’s meetings are postponed or cancelled, it was even more important for us to be present this year to keep in touch with all the players in the industry. The Autonomy platform also allows us to interact with participants and provides opportunities to speak. One digital event will not be able to reproduce the same effect as a physical one, but at least the messages will still get across, people with common interests will be able to interact, and business can continue. That is, above all, the role of a trade fair.
Caroline VAN RENTERGHEM – Marketing & Communication Manager
Nous avons toujours exposé à Autonomy avec notre groupe Mobivia-Via Id aux côtés de nombreuses start-ups des nouvelles mobilités. Autonomy est un rendez-vous important autant pour rester en contact avec nos clients, rencontrer des prospects et partenaires mais surtout pour découvrir toutes les innovations du marché.
Nous présentons depuis quelques mois notre nouvelle gamme de vélos Flex qui intègre de nombreuses innovations inspirées des apprentissages des 23 villes que nous fournissons dont Paris. Nous avons fait évoluer nos services pour répondre toujours mieux aux nouveaux besoins des villes, opérateurs et usagers. Nous avons donc hâte de présenter ces innovations et de recevoir les retours du marché sur celles-ci.
Parce que la crise nous empêche de nous réunir et que la plupart des rendez-vous du secteur sont reportés ou annulés, il était d’autant plus important pour nous d’être présents cette année pour rester en contact avec tous les acteurs du marché. La plateforme Autonomy permet d’interagir avec les participants et offre des occasions de prendre la parole. Un évènement digital ne pourra pas reproduire l’effervescence d’un événement physique mais au moins les messages passeront, les personnes qui ont des intérêts en commun pourront interagir et le business peut se poursuivre, c’est avant tout cela le rôle d’un salon.

While we were in a development phase, we came as visitors during the 2019 edition.
We had exchanged with many interlocutors and appreciated the fact of being able to have a global vision of the world of mobility in one place.
Autonomy gives us the opportunity to understand the rapid evolution of the sector and the expectations of customers.
This 2020 edition will allow us, we hope, to make contacts for future partnerships. Especially with companies, journalists or potential investors.
Grégoire Lieurade – Co-Founder
Alors en phase de développement, nous étions venus en tant que visiteurs lors de l’édition 2019. Nous avions échangé avec de nombreux interlocuteurs et avions apprécié le fait de pouvoir avoir une vision globale du monde de la mobilité en un seul lieu. Le salon Autonomy nous offre l’opportunité d’une veille concurrentielle, de comprendre l’évolution rapide du secteur et les attentes des clients.
Cette édition 2020 nous permettra, nous l’espérons, de nouer des contacts en vue de partenariats futurs. Notamment auprès d’entreprises, de journalistes ou de potentiels investisseurs.

We have seen Autonomy grow and have seen this event become the must-attend event in the mobility sector. Looking to become a major sustainable mobility actor in France, we absolutely wanted to participate in Autonomy 2020 to launch our application. We want to be an integral part of the Autonomy platform in order to make ourselves visible to all mobility players and to be recognized as a major player ourselves.
By participating in the 2020 edition, we hope to be able to promote the YUWWAY brand and meet mobility professionals. We are developing our B2B offer and so wish to communicate on our services which optimize the management of business travel and allow companies to reduce their environmental footprint.
Jamel Ghechoua – Fondateur & CTO
I decided to participate in Autonomy Digital 2020 because the show organisers decided early on to switch to a virtual format and have established the means to achieve it. The Autonomy team has risen to the challenge by putting in place all the ingredients that made the previous editions successful. I really had the impression of being able to experience so much wealth in this particular context which we all find ourselves living in.
I am a promoter of education and sharing, which are the ingredients that a market and its economy can properly develop while leaving space for each professional actor. It is also in this spirit that Autonomy was able to bring attention to micro-mobility very early on, first for the FP2M federation where I am a chairperson and now at Plume.
What am I expecting from this 2020 edition? Obviously a great success because Autonomy has not only solved the technical challenge, but has also been able to bring together all the players from across the mobility ecosystem so this 2020 event remains the meeting point for mobility. I can’t wait to be there !
Fabrice Furlan – Founder & CEO
Transit Bot offers conversational solutions (chatbots) to transportation operators (e.g., making real-time passenger information available on Facebook Messenger). Autonomy is an excellent way to increase the visibility of the innovation we bring to the mobility space and to conduct fruitful meetings.
Autonomy brings together the entire community of innovators in the mobility sector. We know that the visitors and exhibitors of the show share our willingness to transform the traveler’s customer experience, especially through Mobility-as-a-Service.
2020 is the launch year of Transit Bot, and of our first successful experience with Keolis. Being at Autonomy Digital will help us consolidate the acquisition of our first customers and prepare for growth in 2021.
Assen LEKARSKI – CEO
Transit Bot propose des solutions conversationnelles (chatbots) aux opérateurs de transport (par ex: rendre accessible l’information voyageur temps réel sur Facebook Messenger). Autonomy est un excellent moyen de faire connaître l’innovation que nous portons aux acteurs de la mobilité et de faire des rencontres fructueuses.
Autonomy regroupe la communauté des innovateurs du secteur de la mobilité. Nous savons que les visiteurs et les exposants du salon partagent notre volonté de transformer l’expérience client des voyageurs, notamment via la tendance Mobility-as-a-Service.
2020 est l’année du lancement de Transit Bot, et de notre première expérience réussie avec le groupe Keolis. Autonomy nous aidera à consolider l’acquisition de nos premiers clients et préparer la croissance de 2021.
J’ai décidé de m’associer à Autonomy Digital 2020 parce qu’ils ont pris tôt la décision de passer sur un format virtuel avec les moyens que cela nécessite. J’y retrouve tous les ingrédients qui ont fait le succès des années précédentes ce qui est un défi sur ce rendez-vous digital. J’ai réellement ressenti cette impression de pouvoir vivre autant de richesses dans ce contexte particulier que nous vivons tous.
Je suis promoteur de la pédagogie et du partage qui sont les ingrédients qu’un marché et son économie peut se développer sainement et laisser place à chaque acteur professionnel. C’est aussi cet état d’esprit et cette place qu’Autonomy à su donner très tôt à la micro-mobilité d’abord pour la fédération FP2M que je préside et désormais à Plume.
Ce que j’attends de cette édition 2020 ? Un succès évidemment car Autonomy au delà du défi technique a su fédérer les professionnels et chacun des acteurs pour que ce rendez-vous 2020 reste le rendez-vous de la mobilité. Hâte d’y être !
Fabrice Furlan – Fondateur & CEO
Nous avons vu grandir Autonomy et vu cet évènement devenir un évènement incontournable dans la mobilité. Souhaitant devenir un acteur majeur de la mobilité durable en France, nous tenions absolument participer à Autonomy2020 pour le lancement de notre application. Nous souhaitons faire partie intégrante de la plateforme Autonomy afin de nous rendre visible auprès de tous les acteurs de la mobilité d’être reconnu comme un acteur majeur.
En participant à l’édition de 2020, nous espérons pouvoir promouvoir la marque YUWWAY et rencontrer des professionnels de la mobilité. Nous développons notre offre B2B et souhaitons ainsi proposer nos services aux entreprises afin d’optimiser la gestion de leur déplacement et leur permettre de limiter leur impact sur l’environnement.
We chose to participate to Autonomy Digital 2020 to join like-minded industry, policy and business actors in shaping the future of mobility for our cities. As a company, we believe our value lies in our role as an enabler of sustainable innovation by working with our clients on their research, innovation and business in sectors of key importance for global sustainable development. Our vision lies in the belief that the major transformations required for attaining global sustainability will need positive and impactful innovation and we see Autonomy Digital as a potential vector to making these changes possible.
Autonomy is a great platform to push for a more sustainable future for the mobility sector through innovative solutions that have a positive impact on both the environment and the society we live in. As partners of the Horizon 2020 European project TInnGO « Transport Innovation Gender Observatory”, we contribute to the development of a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport through a transformative strategy of gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility. We strongly believe in the importance of social innovation when it comes to mobility, allowing for the creation of more inclusive services that foster the well-being of all members of our society.
Thanks to Autonomy, we will be able to present our work and reach a wider audience in the mobility sector that is often not aware of the importance of gender mainstreaming (1) when it comes to mobility. Planning transportation for all and designing innovative solutions for mobility requires a shift towards more inclusive designs, decision-making processes, training and employment opportunities.
Through TInnGO, LGI created an online observatory and collaborative platform that gathers all information and results of the project, promoting access to knowledge on gender related issues in transportation. Moreover, by coordinating the work of the French Hub, we conduct field activities and stakeholders’ engagement in the Paris Region, collecting data, analyzing existing research and raising awareness in order to advance gender equality and inclusion in transportation.
Autonomy Digital 2020 will be a key opportunity to learn more about the mobility ecosystem globally . We are looking forward to meeting transport professionals and debating with mobility actors from all branches of the sector in order to advance together towards a more sustainable and socially inclusive mobility offer.
We see an opportunity to meet potential partners and clients and answer any questions about our mission, vision and activities. Our experience in the mobility sector makes us a strategic ally to clusters, private companies, startups, public administrations and European collaborative projects. We help these stakeholders better understand their world by conducting thorough research on pressing issues. By mixing data and interview analysis, the team is able to paint an accurate picture of what is at stake and better adapt the offer for companies to satisfy the needs of potential users. Expertise is also provided to public institutions to make transport more environmentally sustainable and cities more socially inclusive.
(1) Gender mainstreaming “involves the integration of a gender perspective into the preparation, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies, regulatory measures and spending programmes, with a view to promoting equality between women and men, and combating discrimination” (EIGE) https://eige.europa.eu/gender-mainstreaming/what-is-gender-mainstreaming.
Cosima Malandrino – Consultant
We’re looking to share our experience in working with micro-mobility over the last 6 years but also a forward-looking vision on where we’re heading.
In this 2020 edition, I am looking to meet & greet with some of the smartest minds in the field of micro-mobility — from shared mobility operators to city authorities and vehicle manufacturers.
We were able to meet with some of the most forward-looking individuals and companies. Sharing experiences across companies that are working on the same goal — reducing congestion and emissions is empowering each of us to move faster.
Teet Praks – Co-Founder
We decided to partner with the Autonomy Digital because we think that it is vital that the mobility industry comes together and exchanges ideas. We hope to get lots of inspiration and to be able to inspire others.
Autonomy plays an important role at Spin. Our goal is to give our customers more freedom and to offer them a sustainable mobility alternative where they need it. That is what distinguishes us from other services: We offer our service at the right places and look where we are wanted and needed to improve mobility for all.
For us it is not only important to spread our messages but also to listen to others and to connect with them. That is what we want to do. The more we connect with other companies and share our ideas among each other the more we can profit as a community.
Felix Petersen – Head of Europe
Autonomy shares GoWithFlow’s vision to change the way people move — for the better.

For ADEME, being a major player in the transition to a zero-carbon future – we considered it necessary to be a part of Autonomy’s digital international event, as it brings together all the main actors of sustainable and intelligent mobility. In addition to the current health and regulatory context, especially considering the new French mobility law (LOM), there are many challenges to be met. The complex landscape of mobility has a very heterogeneous ecosystem. This is why, ADEME, working daily to make the transition to sustainable mobility happen, had to be present at Autonomy Digital – to promote new mobility solutions and to influence strategic decisions for a low-carbon transition in the field of transportation – locally, nationally and internationally.
This French and international event is an opportunity for ADEME to exchange with professionals, from any sector, who are responsible for the mobility of today, but also of tomorrow. The presence of all types of players, including start-ups, transport operators, local authorities, and private decisionmakers, is a major asset. The rich exchanges that ADEME is looking to have will be a way to both learn from current experiences that are influencing future practices as well as promote the trends of tomorrow.
Autonomy Digital will allow ADEME to discuss two very important topics: inclusive mobility within the framework of the LOM and urban logistics across France. This year’s virtual set-up will also allow us to share our many materials (videos, interviews, etc.) but also to interact as an institutional partner with visitors and other exhibitors of the event through the live chat or business meetings function. In this context of sharing our strategy on transportation and mobility, this edition will also be an opportunity to recall our ambitions and our willingness to work as closely as possible with the players involved in creating the mobility of tomorrow.
Jérémie ALMOSNI – Head of the Transport and Mobility Department
L’ADEME acteur de la transition écologique et solidaire se devait d’être présente en s’associant à cet évènement international 100% digital 2020, qui rassemble tous les acteurs de mobilités durables et intelligentes. Outre le contexte sanitaire actuel et réglementaire avec la Loi d’Orientation des Mobilités (LOM) notamment, de nombreux défis sont à relever. Le paysage complexe de la mobilité fait appel à un écosystème très hétérogène. C’est pourquoi, l’ADEME en œuvrant au quotidien pour des nouvelles mobilités durables, se devait d’être présente pour promouvoir des solutions de mobilité et influencer les décisions stratégiques pour une transition écologique dans le domaine des transports, à l’échelle locale, nationale et internationale.
Cette événement à l’échelle internationale et nationale est une opportunité pour L’ADEME d’échanger entre professionnels, de tout secteur qui sont en charge de la mobilité d’aujourd’hui mais aussi celle de demain. La présence de tout type d’acteur, aussi bien des start-up, opérateurs de transport que des collectivités locales ou décideurs privés est un atout majeur. Ces échanges que l’ADEME souhaite riches seront un moyen à la fois de promouvoir les modes de demain mais également s’enrichir des expériences existantes qui influenceront les pratiques futures.
Le salon va permettre à l’ADEME, dans le cadre de la prise de paroles, d’évoquer deux sujets importants : La mobilité inclusive dans le cadre de la Loi d’Orientation des Mobilités (LOM) et la logistique urbaine dans les territoires. Le stand virtuel lui permettra également de mettre à disposition des outils de présentation de l’agence ainsi que différents supports (vidéos institutionnelles, études…), mais aussi d’interagir en tant que partenaire institutionnel avec les visiteurs et autres exposants du salon à travers le “chat” en direct ou les business meetings. Dans ce contexte d’actualisation de sa stratégie sur le Transports et de la Mobilité, cette édition sera aussi une opportunité pour rappeler nos ambitions et cette volonté de travailler au plus près des acteurs de la mobilité de demain.
Jérémie ALMOSNI – Chef du Service Transports et Mobilités

As innovation forefront of DEKRA, one of the leaders in the TIC industry, a great part of our heritage derives from the automotive sector. As DEKRA DIGITAL, we are innovating safety by leveraging technology trends and creating new business models – translating our role as a neutral party into the digital age. Safety cannot taken for granted, we – as DEKRA – will make sure that we are able to enjoy the beauty of new digital technologies. Looking at Mobility as an obvious extension of automotive, one example is our “Micro Mobility Safety Standard”. It is a holistic approach to safety and sustainability for the ecosystem of e-scooters and other last-mile solutions.
Our motto is collaborate to innovate – innovation is a team sport after all. We are looking forward to meeting potential partners and engaging in fruitful discussions, including the cities that have a key role to play in shaping the future of mobility – as well as getting inspired by whatever is trending in the mobility and smart cities sectors right now.
Last year, our colleagues from DEKRA France sponsored the event, as partner of shared mobility providers in vehicle appraisal and claims handling services. As DEKRA DIGITAL it is our first appearance at Autonomy, but we embrace the chance to go fully digital for an event this year. It totally resembles our identity.
Dr. Kerim Galal – Managing Director / EVP Corporate Strategy & Innovation
We believe that Autonomy Digital 2020 is a great platform to allow us to access and network with professionals and industry players from the new mobility ecosystem. Also, Autonomy will provide us an opportunity to present our company’s proprietary autonomous vehicle solutions to the broad participant network.
We hope to promote our solutions during the event so that more partners, customers and investors will get to know us, and to exchange experiences on European policies and regulations with other participants. And via this 2020 edition, we also hope to play a role in contributing to the future sustainable and intelligent mobility in Europe and the world.
Wanqiu Hu – VP / European Market Representative
Since we started Zoov, Autonomy has been a key ingredient in making the brand known on the shared mobility market. It’s at Autonomy that we unveiled our shared electric bikes with ultra-compact parking stations back in 2018, and it’s at Autonomy that we presented our inter-bike charging technology and announced the first cities we would operate in, last year. Autonomy is like our own CES and today, Zoov is a major player–praised by its peers–and often recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of electric bikes in the sharing industry. The best operators can now get their electric bikes directly from Zoov, and that’s what we want everyone to know.
Zoov is now offering the full package for any operator that wants to start operating shared electric bikes. We have top-of-the-line electric bikes, charging stations on option, and also all the tools and apps that empower you to manage your fleet efficiently and maximize profitability. Our goal at Autonomy is to show what makes our offerings better than the competition. In short: sustainable vehicles with low maintenance costs, that are easily integrated with any mobility platform, constantly improving thanks to our experience as an operator, and continuous tech support from our engineering team in France.
One year is a long time on the mobility market. Beyond presenting our latest innovations and offerings, we want to make our voice heard. We are rooting for the creation of a strong european ecosystem that has the potential to upset today’s biggest players, and most importantly to have a stronger, more positive and long-term impact on people’s lives. We will have the pleasure to host an Industry Talk on that particular subject. See you online!
Amira Haberah – Co-founder
Depuis les débuts de Zoov, Autonomy a occupé une place importante dans la construction de notre notoriété sur le marché de la mobilité partagée. C’est là que nous avons dévoilé nos vélos électriques en libre-service avec stations ultra-compactes pour la première fois en 2018, puis que nous avons présenté notre technologie de transfert d’énergie et annoncé les premières villes où nous nous lancions en tant qu’exploitant. C’est un peu notre CES à nous et aujourd’hui, Zoov est un acteur important, reconnu par ses pairs comme l’un des tous meilleurs fabricants de vélos électriques partagés du marché, au point de devenir également fournisseur. C’est ce que nous venons faire savoir.
Zoov propose désormais une offre complète pour les exploitants, comprenant la fourniture de vélos électriques connectés pour du partage, des stations de recharge en option, mais aussi toute une suite d’outils et d’applications permettant de gérer la flotte au quotidien et de générer un maximum de chiffre d’affaires. Notre objectif est principalement de présenter cette offre et ce qui différencie Zoov de la concurrence, en quelques mots : des véhicules durables avec faible coût de maintenance, facilement intégrables à toute offre de mobilité, constamment améliorés grâce à notre savoir-faire d’exploitant, et un accompagnement technologique continu, de proximité par nos ingénieurs basés en France.
En une année, il se passe énormément de choses sur le marché de la mobilité. Au-delà de présenter nos nouveautés, technologique et commerciales, il est primordial de participer aux débats qui entourent notre secteur. Nous ne cachons pas un certain militantisme pour la création d’un écosystème européen fort, capable de rivaliser avec les marchés leaders jusqu’à présent. Nous aurons le plaisir d’animer un Industry Talk en lien avec cet engagement. Rendez-vous au mois de novembre !

We at OKAI believe that Autonomy in Paris has always been one of the important shows and gatherings when it comes to Micro Mobility and Shared Mobility. Many of our existing customers have attended the show in the past. We are looking forward to trying out the new ALL DIGITAL format during COVID19 and hope that we can make the most of it.
We are looking to use the event to showcase the new Okai EB100 Sharing Bike as well the matching Okai ES400B Sharing Scooter. Both vehicles run on the same battery and charging platform. Thus we are excited to see what kind of questions we might get from potential customers at Autonomy 2020.
Laurens Laudowicz – CEO

We’re excited to complement, enhance, and engage with the micromobility market and we look forward to connecting with other like-minded industry partners. Skillion’s journey is just beginning!
We’re looking for some great talks and conferences along with networking and discovering new areas of IoT integration. Also we’ll be seeking potential partners interested in exploring ways to make their mobility business stand out with custom UX and other IoT integration possibilities. As a US company we’re excited to showcase our technology in Europe.

We are looking for the right event to find potential partners and private investors who are looking for different and effective solutions for Automotive Cyber security mainly for Aftermarket and for now.
Naftaly Sharir – Co-founder & CEO
Autonomy est un salon à envergure internationale, ce que nous cherchions.
Il regroupe les acteurs mobilité et smart city qui nous intéresse, autant en terme de partenariat possible que de clientèle.
J’aurais pu ajouter qu’il est à Paris, c’est un avantage pour y venir de la Suisse, mais dans le contexte actuel cet argument n’en est plus un.
Je ne vais pas vous mentir, vous n’êtes pas notre seul salon ni le salon autour duquel nous construisons notre saison. Il est tout simplement un des salons à la qualité et la fréquentation qui correspond à ce que nous recherchons.
Honnêtement, il est encore difficile de se prononcer quantitativement et qualitativement sur les salons virtuels. Cela reste encore une forme d’expérimentation pour tout le monde. Les salons ont toujours permis à Securaxis d’acquérir de nouveaux clients, nous en espérons donc autant pour Autonomy2020 digital.
Ce que j’attends peut-être pour une édition virtuelle, c’est une qualité encore supérieure en terme de présence et de contenu. Les visiteurs cette années ne sont pas « captifs” de l’événement, il n’y a pas d’unité de lieu. A la place de chercher sur le salon des innovations ou autre produit qui m’intéresse après avoir suivi une conférence, étant à la maison ou à mon bureau derrière mon ordinateur, je peux vaquer à d’autres occupations. Garder le visiteur en ligne sera tout le challenge, d’où cette nécessité de qualité encore accrue.
Gaetan Vannay – Chief of staff
Responding to the challenges of public transport (ecological responsibility, sanitation, social access, etc.) demands the mobilization of everyone. At CITiO, we are keen to exchange with all companies, whether big or small, who are working to reinvent the mobility of tomorrow.
Over the past 2 years, due to the technical quality of our solution, our business knowledge, and our ability to meet the real needs of our customers, we have experienced strong growth in France and abroad.
CITiO is participating in Autonomy Digital 2020 to increase our visibility and forge lasting partnerships with companies whose competencies are aligned with our own.
Through this digital edition, we see above all the opportunity to exchange freely, to share our experiences, our ROIs, and our use cases with as many people as possible.
Guillaume GIBON – CEO
Joining forces with Autonomy Digital 2020 means joining forces with Europe’s leading mobility trade show. This show, both for participants as well as visitors, has the strongest business approach.
Starbolt is today the reference company for sustainable and electric B2B mobility in France, and we are looking to expand to other European cities in 2021. Autonomy is an excellent opportunity to meet potential partners and targeted clients to become future riders.
Edouard Atger – Founder
Autonomy is a B2B event that brings together ‘all the actors for a more sustainable and intelligent mobility’ and that is what Kirrk is offering. Our platform equips rental companies and fleet managers with an innovative 360° white label solution. Kirrk is a SaaS that digitizes the entire vehicle rental chain and is enriched by a constellation of services that allows our customers to manage and optimize their business.
2020 is obviously a year particularly marked by global change. Thanks to the digitalisation of routes, our solution allows our clients to maintain their activities during this period, in total security.
Autonomy 2020 will allow our future clients to discover how Kirrk can help their business, optimise their operations and how our service can guarantee safe social distancing measures with a contactless approach and a unique ‘self-service’ B2B approach.
Zaak Chalal – Co-Founder
Autonomy is a true international trade show, which is what we were looking for. It brings together right mobility and smart city actors that interest us, both in terms of partners and potential clients. I could add that normally it is a benefit that the show takes place in Paris, which is an advantage for us coming from Switzerland, although this is no longer the case. I will be honest in saying that Autonomy is not the only event that makes up our season of trade shows that we attend, but it is one of the top events with a level of quality and attendance that corresponds to what we are looking for.
Honestly, it is still difficult to make definitive quantitative and qualitative statements about virtual trade shows. They are still in a period of experimentation of everyone, but trade shows have always allowed us to acquire new customers, so we hope the same for Autonomy Digital.
What I am perhaps expecting for a virtual edition is an even higher level of quality in terms of presence and content. Visitors this year are not ‘captive’ at the event for there is no unity of place. Instead of wandering the show in search of new innovations or another product that could interest me after attending a talk, being at home or at my desk behind a computer, keeping visitors’ attention will be more difficult. Keeping visitors online and engaged will be the challenge, hence the need for a higher level of quality.
Mov’eo brings together the main mobility players in the Normandy and Île-de-France regions, supporting and accelerating numerous SMEs and startups offering innovative mobility solutions. We are the largest French network of scientific, technical and industrial excellence where lasting partnerships are built between the different actors of the Automotive and Mobility ecosystems. It is therefore natural for us to be associated with the key annual event for sustainable urban mobility.
Autonomy brings together the sector’s professionals. Its B2B approach encourages valuable exchanges and its strong focus on innovation gives a prospective vision of mobility. Autonomy allows Mov’eo to highlight the innovative solutions of our members and to increase the visibility of our offer in order to develop the mobility of the future.
The current health and economic crisis that we are experiencing will accelerate the changes already underway in the mobility sector (electrification, connectivity, multimodality, micro and shared mobility, etc). Autonomy 2020 will be a good marker to be able to measure the key trends, promote innovative solutions and collectively address the challenges of sustainable mobility in this very particular context that we are currently living.
We have in fact been present each year at Autonomy since its creation. Despite the health crisis and the switch from a physical to digital event, we decided to continue participating in order to test out how a 100% digital edition will work and to show our optimism for the mobility sector’s ability to rebound.
Marc CHARLET – General Manager
Autonomy is the show for new mobility for those who want to see the sector evole, both for new and established players. Kisio has been working for a long time within the digital mobility ecosystem to accompany the transformation of the sector.Our presence at Autonomy is therefore only natural!
A digital edition offers the perspective of a wider audience beyond that of the Paris ecosystem, so we are preparing for discussions with a higher number of regional and international actors.
Kisio is in a pattern of constant innovation – we always have new solutions and feedback to share … it’s the same throughout the sector. So, we are excited about this opportunity to continue to discover and exchange on new approaches and services with our peers.
Emilie MOLINO – Marketing & Communication Director
Répondre aux enjeux actuels du transport public (responsabilité écologique, sanitaire, sociale, etc.) demande la mobilisation de tous. Chez CITiO, nous avons à coeur d’échanger avec l’ensemble des entreprises (start-up ou grands groupes) qui participent à réinventer la mobilité de demain.
Depuis 2 ans, grâce à la qualité technique de notre solution, notre connaissance métier et notre capacité à répondre aux besoins réelles de nos clients, nous avons connu une forte croissance, en France et à l’étranger.
CITiO participe aujourd’hui à Autonomy 2020 pour gagner en visibilité et forger des partenariats durables avec des entreprises dont les compétences entrent en synergie avec les nôtres.
Au travers de cette édition digitale, nous voyons avant tout l’opportunité d’échanger en toute liberté, et de partager notre expérience, nos ROI et nos cas d’usages avec un maximum de personne.
Mobility is fundamental in the way we live and do business. And as Europe’s biggest B2B event in the industry, we see Autonomy as the absolute best place to show how our payment products enable frictionless travel in today’s as well as future economies.
At Autonomy, we hope to gain and share innovative insights into the world of mobility. We also realize that – especially in times like these – forging strong partnerships is essential and we hope to establish new connections that will help drive our mission forward.
Remko Best – Head of international sales
With all physical conferences and exhibitions either canceled, postponed, or moved to virtual events, the Autonomy Digital gives us the maximum exposure to a qualified group of participants in the marketplace we are serving. Therefore, we are happy and excited to be part of this high-profile group of companies exhibiting, discussing, and presenting at the digital venue.
As a leading supplier of charge point management systems, has·to·be will proudly display the capabilities of our software be.ENERGISED and explain the convincing benefits for companies entering this fast-growing and exciting market as well as established players of the industry. Scalability, reliability, and interoperability are critical factors to succeed during the period of extreme growth we are all expecting. With its proven track record, has·to·be is looking forward to questions and discussions during the panel Physical & Digital Infrastructure on the 5th of November from 3.40 – 4.20pm and visits to our virtual booth.
Andreas Blin – Manager International Sales & Business Development
We decided to partner with Autonomy Digital 2020 this year because firstly, we had a wonderful experience exhibiting at the event last year and secondly (and most importantly), were able to meet various potential customers and partners across a wide variety of industries who sought our parking-related data science expertise.
Last year, we showcased our award-winning sensorless real-time on-street and off-street parking availability and navigation solutions. This year at Autonomy Digital 2020, we are hoping to introduce and demonstrate our new street-level predictive solutions which further build upon our patented AI-based technology. We also hope to connect and reconnect with potential customers and partners who are seeking intelligent real-time data about what is occurring in the “street” (including parking).
It is important for us to return to Autonomy for 2020 because mobility is constantly changing month-by-month, week-by-week and even day-by-day. In the age of COVID, it is important to keep your potential customers and partners informed about the “latest and greatest” in mobility, and Autonomy will allow us to do that successfully.
Jeremy Leval – VP of Product and Marketing
S’associer à Autonomy Digital 2020, c’est s’associer au salon européen phare de la mobilité. Ce salon, aussi bien pour ses participants que pour ses visiteurs, à la plus forte approche business.
Starbolt est aujourd’hui la référence de la mobilité douce et électrique B2B en France et cherche à s’étendre dès 2021 dans d’autres villes européennes. Autonomy est une belle opportunité pour rencontrer des partenaires et clients ciblés internationaux et nos futurs “riders” ! ».
Edouard Atger – Fondateur
For almost 2 years, VMotoSoco has been developing very strong ambitions on the European market after becoming the leader in electric two-wheelers on the Asian market. Autonomy’s exposure in nearly 70 countries, as well as its 100% B2B orientation for 2 years will allow us to refine our networks in several countries. In addition, the diversity of markets covered by VMoto’s products are all represented at the show, namely “Shared mobility”, “Corporate mobility” and “Urban logistics”.
Following the crisis we have all been through, patterns of work and mobility have been shaken up. With this edition, we hope to be able to present ourselves to a multitude of mobility actors (distributors / fleet managers / large group management) in order to develop traditional uses and contribute to the development of ever more relevant, ecological and economical solutions for the wider audience.
Gaëtan Orselli – B2B Sales Manager Europe
Depuis près de 2 ans, VMotoSoco développe de très fortes ambitions sur le marché Européen après être devenu leader en 2 roues électriques sur le marché Asiatique. L’exposition d’Autonomy dans près de 70 pays, ainsi que son orientation 100% B2B depuis 2 ans nous permettra d’affiner nos réseaux dans plusieurs pays. De plus, la diversité de marchés couverts par les produits de VMoto sont tous représentés au sein du salon, à savoir « Shared Mobility », « Corporate Mobility » ou « Urban Logistics ».
Suite à la crise que nous avons tous traversés, les schémas du travail et de la mobilité ont été bousculé. Nous espérons avec cette édition pouvoir nous présenter à une multitude d’acteurs en mobilité (distributeurs / gestionnaires de flottes / directions de grands groupes) afin de faire évoluer les usages traditionnels et contribuer au développement de solutions toujours plus pertinentes, écologiques et économiques pour le plus grand nombre.
C’est un événement B2B qui rassemble « tous les acteurs d’une mobilité plus durable et plus intelligente », et c’est ce que nous proposons avec Kirrk. Notre plateforme équipe les loueurs et les gestionnaires de flottes avec une solution à 360° innovante en marque blanche. Kirrk est un SaaS qui digitalise toute la chaîne de location d’un véhicule et s’enrichit d’une constellation de services qui permet à nos clients de piloter leur business et l’optimiser.
2020 a été une année particulière marquée par des changements dans le monde entier. Grâce à la digitalisation des parcours, notre solution a permis à nos clients de maintenir leur activité pendant cette période, en toute sécurité.
Autonomy 2020 permettra à nos futurs clients de découvrir comment Kirrk peut aider leur business, optimiser leurs opérations et offre un service garantissant les gestes barrière avec une approche contactless et une expérience unique B2B2C en libre-service.
Zaak Chalal – Co-Fondateur
Autonomy addresses the full scope of mobility: from the big picture of Maas and smart cities to the collection of components like vehicles, mobility services. As epicnpoc we can boost the value of products and mobility systems and therefore need to meet and discuss with all of them. As we focus on innovative solution, the proximity with our customers is key and that’s why Paris is the perfect place.
We expect to initiate collaboration with partners to develop new products and services addressing the new challenges: New Way of Working, Safe mobility,… Ideally we will connect 2 or more Autonomy contacts to generate ideas, proof of concept and real products.
Guillaume Becourt – Experience Design, VP Co-founder
Autonomy brings together mobility leaders who are focused on improving and expanding mobility services.
As a platform focused on enabling operators and fleets to maximize utilization and open new services, at Autonomy we meet like-minded professionals who want to advance and improve what they do.
The challenges of 2020 have caused mobility service operators to re-evaluate everything: new business models, increasing field operations for cleaning/maintenance/ etc., launching new territories, etc. We’re excited to share from our experience in assisting fleets and operators to help with that process.
As we saw last year, we’re glad to be back and find more partners who want to challenge the status quo and find ways to innovate on the existing offerings to unlock more efficiency in the industry.

We are happy to partner with Autonomy at this stage as well. And we are looking forward for many years to come.
Other than a marketplace approach, Autonomy 2020 edition will be a great chance to follow the new trends and technologies presented by the prestigious stakeholders and the sponsors.

Thanks to major innovations in AI, Level 4 and Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles may not be as far off as previously believed. This leads us to wonder, what will the “driver” experience look like in a car that does not actually require any driving? How will people inhabit this new autonomous space and what will they do while they are there? And finally, what will the role of the car be in relation to the city around it and the people inside of it?

La solution WeTrott’ permet de générer le report modal de la voiture vers l’utilisation de nos trottinettes en intermodalité, combinant transports en communs et trottinettes. Nous répondons à la problématique du premier et du dernier km, dans une logique de continuité territoriale, mais aussi pour mieux desservir les pôles d’échanges multimodaux. Cette solution contribue à diminuer la congestion, la pollution, puisque nos lignes de stations doivent se substituer à l’usage de la voiture sur les courtes distances. Outre l’atout majeur de la flexibilité de l’implantation de nos stations sans génie civil et facilement déplaçable, elles offrent un service sécurisé. La protection de notre environnement est primordiale et en ce sens, nous avons intégré un système de chargement automatique des trottinettes ce qui limite l’impact de la maintenance. Le service de maintenance intervient en vélo-cargo pour l’entretien technique uniquement. La solution est complétée par la distribution automatique d’un casque et d’un cadenas, des trottinettes bridées et conformes ce qui nous a permis de garantir une assurance RC et Corporelle pour tous les utilisateurs. Nous répondons au besoin de mobilité de manière respectueuse de l’environnement et de l’espace public.

Electric Vehicles have long been touted as the “future of mobility” and yet they are far from being widespread on the roads. Many potential drivers are affected by “range anxiety” and the very real question remains of whether many cities’ power grids are even capable of hosting EVs en masse? Relying on a wealth of expertise and experience from efforts to “electrify” transport in France, the panelists will address the pressing challenges by looking into new charging solutions and discussing what it will take to convert mobility in cities to electric once and for all.

These days, electric cars are shaking up mobility. Mobility is becoming more digital, more autonomous and increasingly shared. In the face of climate change and pollution in large cities, electric mobility offers an appropriate and more sustainable response. Now, everything seems to be in place for its large-scale development. Almost 9 million electric vehicles are expected to be on Europe’s roads by 2030. Concerted political efforts and major advances in lithium batteries bring new possibilities. Meanwhile, stricter regulations on greenhouse gas emissions are accelerating this move towards electric technology. Automakers are investing massively in R&D and their factories, as newcomers move into the market to provide products and services such as electricity, batteries, applications and interoperable charging systems. A whole new ecosystem is taking shape.
