UrbanLoop originated in 2017 as a project of the University of Lorraine, involving 100 students, two departments (the National School of Electricity and Mechanics and National School of Mines), 4 universities, the National Center for Scientific Research, and the Grand Est region including the city of Nancy. Construction of a 200m demonstration system began in 2019 at the Institute of Applied Sciences-Brabois Engineering campus; testing was conducted there in 2020. The program is moving rapidly toward implementation: a 2.2 km temporary system is planned to serve one venue in the 2024 Paris Olympics; after the Games the system will be dismantled and installed permanently in Nancy in 2026.
