Experiments for industrial exploration. Testing a car sharing system
AbstractIn 2012, considering its development strategy for the electric car market, Renault turned the town of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines into a experimentation and demonstration laboratory, with the installation of electric cars as part of a car sharing system without fixed stations, called Twizy Way. In this paper the authors take into account the ontological work this experiment produces, its demonstrative ability and the way it intertwines knowledge, as part of boundary drawing within the framework of the experiment itself. They speak of a form of flexible laboratorisation affected by doubt and constant reorganisation of the elements making up, overflowing and interfering with the experiment.
