AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE FEATURE NEWS

Bestmile Joins Renovo's AWare Ecosystem to Enable Robotaxi Fleet

By Ken Briodagh May 31, 2018

Bestmile, a mobility services platform used to operate, manage, and optimize highly automated vehicle fleets, recently announced it has joined mobility operating system (OS) maker Renovo’s AWare Ecosystem. The integration of Bestmile’s Mobility Services Platform makes automated vehicles using Renovo’s AWare OS “fleet ready,” as Bestmile’s platform can be used to deploy, manage and optimize automated mobility on demand “robotaxi” services using these vehicles regardless of type or the automated driving system used.

“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 optimize performance,” said Raphael Gindrat, CEO, Bestmile. “We share Renovo’s vision of an open, interoperable, on-demand ecosystem where best-in-class technologies combine to bring about optimized automated mobility safely, quickly and economically, and are pleased to be a part of this ecosystem.”

Bestmile’s technology is designed to enable highly automated vehicles to work together as intelligent fleets, delivering on-demand services with automated dispatching, traveler communication, route optimization, pooling, and energy and maintenance management. Advanced matching algorithms can process traveler, vehicle and third-party data to send the right vehicle to the right place at the right time. 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 utilization and wait times, and monitor services in real time.

“Renovo’s AWare OS offers an open ecosystem of best-in-class technologies to make the deployment of highly automated vehicles in fleets safer, more secure and more efficient,” said Chris Heiser, co-founder and CEO, Renovo. “With Bestmile joining this ecosystem, our customers deploying automated mobility fleets now have access to Bestmile’s technology which offers a leading comprehensive technology suite to manage them. We will be using Bestmile’s Mobility Services Platform to help manage the Renovo fleet in California.”

Renovo’s AWare OS allows diverse mobility technologies to work together to enable automated vehicles to operate safely and efficiently. This is important as automated mobility providers need to integrate with a wide range of embedded and external technologies such as onboard sensors, cameras, 3D mapping, remote access and control, and more.
