NAVYA PARTNERS WITH RAC TO ACCELERATE THE DEPLOYMENT OF AUTONOM SHUTTLE IN AUSTRALIA, NZ AND SE ASIA
PRESS RELEASE: 18TH MAY 2017
NAVYA, the leading name in the conception and development autonomous, driverless and electric shuttles is pleased to announce it has signed a partnership agreement with RAC in Australia to coordinate the on-site commissioning of its AUTONOM SHUTTLE, as well as provide a range of technical support services in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.
For NAVYA CEO Christophe Sapet, this partnership will help ensure more people can experience automated vehicles and will support the fast-paced growth and global reach of NAVYA’s vehicle fleet.
“NAVYA is successfully delivering an ambitious program to deploy our smart mobility systems all over the world and securing local technical support for our vehicle fleet with RAC reinforces NAVYA’s strong commitment to provide its customers with the best possible services in a timely fashion,” he said.
RAC, with the support of the State Government, launched the AUTONOM SHUTTLE shuttle in South Perth in August 2016. This new partnership will enable NAVYA to test its innovative technology in new environments throughout Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.
RAC Group CEO, Terry Agnew, said the RAC Intellibus™ trial in South Perth was one of the most progressive in the world.
“The RAC Intellibus™ trial is aimed at enhancing our experience and understanding of driverless technology,” he said.
“We’re continuing our own trials in WA, contributing to a number of national working groups and research initiatives and assisting with the development of policy to help ensure Australia is ready for the inevitable arrival of driverless vehicles.
“The more government, industry and the public learn about and engage with driverless vehicles, the more prepared we will be to transition them on to our roads.”
The RAC team, trained by NAVYA, is responsible for:
- Evaluating and confirming the route
- Mapping the route
- Customer training
