Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev to develop driverless fleet

0

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev are to jointly explore development of mobility services with fleets of electric driverless vehicles for public and on-demand transportation.

The companies will collaborate to develop a comprehensive, modular transportation system to enable clients to book rides, and mobility operators to monitor and operate self-driving car fleets.

“As the mobility services landscape keeps evolving, we have a great opportunity to offer innovative, connected mobility solutions for the evolving needs of our customers, fully aligned with our vision of a zero-emission, zero-fatalities society,” said Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior VP of connected vehicles and mobility services.

“Partnering with Transdev enables us to share our knowledge in electric vehicles, autonomous drive and connected-car technologies with one of the largest multimodal mobility operators worldwide. Together, we will develop an advanced driverless mobility system that will enhance existing public and on-demand transport systems.”

The research will initially include field tests in Paris-Saclay with Renault ZOEs and Transdev’s on-demand dispatch, supervision and routing platform.
