The mobility services platform Bestmile is joining mobility operating system (OS) maker Renovo’s AWare Ecosystem to make it “fleet ready”, deploying, managing and optimising “robotaxi” services using these vehicles regardless of type or the automated driving system used.
Bestmile says its technology enables highly automated vehicles to work together as intelligent fleets, delivering on-demand services with automated dispatching, traveler communication, route optimisation, pooling, and energy and maintenance management. Advanced matching algorithms process traveller, vehicle and third-party data to send the right vehicle to the right place at the right time, while it says data intelligence and machine learning constantly improve system performance. Service providers use the platform to configure service areas, define key performance metrics such as vehicle utilisation and wait times, and monitor services in real time.
“For new mobility services to deliver on their promise to transform transportation, highly automated vehicles must be able to work together and use data from multiple sources to intelligently optimise performance,” explained Raphael Gindrat, CEO of Bestmile. “We share Renovo’s vision of an open, interoperable, on-demand ecosystem where best-in-class technologies combine to bring about optimised automated mobility safely, quickly and economically, and are pleased to be a part of this ecosystem.”
