Electric FlexEVan delivers pop-up services to underserved areas.

A Renault-backed mobility software organization presents its urban transport concept vehicle claiming multi-use “modules” for delivery of pop-up outlets for goods and services.

The Software République, a company formed with backing from the French automaker and six other transportation players, displays its “U1st Vision” [You First Vision] concept in Paris.

It’s made up of two parts: a multi-service self-contained module, or pop-up, delivered on an electric light commercial vehicle platform dubbed a FlexEVan.

Multiple services such as healthcare, civil self-service support, bike repair and electrical goods recycling services could be offered to city residents by these pop-ups when requested by local authorities. As part of its “U1st Vision”, the Software République also includes a comprehensive planning, monitoring and services management tool for public actors and private service providers.

Leading the concept at the VivaTech conference, the healthcare service module includes 12 innovations, one of which is an artificial intelligence-powered avatar. It is aimed at areas where access to health care is poor and claims to be able to provide an integrated one-stop mobile service to citizens, wherever they are, for preventive care and diagnostics and monitoring of diseases. The module is operated by a medical assistant and enables teleconsultations with healthcare professionals.

Software République was created in April 2021 by Renault and five other founding members including Dassault Systèmes, Eviden, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics and Thales, while JCDecaux became the seventh partner member in March this year.
