The Autolib’ organization is an electric-car-sharing program established by the city of Paris and 63 surrounding municipalities to relieve traffic congestion, reduce noise and air pollution, and provide people with more flexible transit options. Implemented
by logistics company IER, the intelligent system based on Windows Embedded connects 72 registration kiosks, 850 rental kiosks, more than 4,300 charging stations, and 2,300 in-car systems to a back-end infrastructure based on Microsoft SQL Server and Windows
Server. By 2023, the solution is expected to replace more than 25,000 privately owned cars, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 75 metric tons. With Autolib’, former car owners have also cut their transportation costs by 90 percent annually. Autolib’ subscribers
enjoy an enhanced driving experience with GPS navigation, free parking, and personalized settings.
