Their development, needs strong economic outlay, and so marks can carry them out have alliances with other firms specialized in the matter. The Renault-Nissan Alliance have ProPilot in its catalog, but still need more technology to become referents.
To grow at the technological level Japanese Frank group has signed an agreement of work with Transdev. Both parties have announced the goal pursued is to develop different solutions to improve mobility with autonomous vehicles. In addition, these new solutions would be employed in the public transport as well as in the car-sharing.
To do so, they will create the first fleet of autonomous vehicles to public transport and the transport of people on-demand. To carry out both groups will design a system that will allow customers to book their travel distance. This will allow operators to manage its fleet of vehicles in a more efficient way, as they could adjust their cars and times to the real needs of the customers.
Once you have designed their technology, they carried out tests on real European pathways. The chosen city is Paris and the vehicle to carry them out will be Renault Zoe. In addition, this combination may allow us to prove the new battery system being developed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance for their future electric cars.
As he has informed the director of performance of Transdev, Yann Leriche, “the mobility of the future will be personalized, connected, autonomous and electric”. Therefore, the experience of being world leaders in terms of mobility services they can provide to the Renault-Nissan alliance. The against part, the Alliance offers to Transdev the perfect object to carry out its investigations and technological developments.
As proof of this, Leriche said that “to unite our forces (Transdev) the of a constructor of automobile world who share the same will to improve daily customers mobility, we will strengthen our capacity for innovation and accelerate the commercialization of new services”.
