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.
