The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev have agreed to jointly explore development of mobility services with fleets of electric driverless vehicles, after the two companies signed a research contract.
Transdev focuses on autonomous vehicles services, and is engaged in a series of pilots in a number of countries.
The companies said the plan involves collaborating to develop a comprehensive, modular transportation system to enable clients to book rides, and mobility operators to monitor and operate self-driving car fleets.
The research will initially include field tests in Paris-Saclay with Renault ZOEs and Transdev’s on-demand dispatch, supervision and routing platform.
Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior vice president of connected vehicles and mobility services said: “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.
“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.”
