Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev to jointly develop driverless vehicle fleet system
The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev have agreed 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 vice president of connected vehicles and mobility services.
“Partnering with Transdev allows us to share our
knowledge as leaders in electric vehicles, autonomous drive and connected-car
technologies with one of the largest multi-modal 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.
“The future of mobility will be P.A.C.E. - personalized,
autonomous, connected and electric,” said Yann Leriche, chief performance
officer at Transdev. “As a worldwide leader in public transport and on-demand
shared services, we are committed to pioneer in mobility to always offer our
clients the best solutions for their journeys.”
