Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev to develop fleets of driverless vehicles
The Renault-Nissan Alliance has signed a deal with autonomous vehicle services specialist Transdev to jointly develop a fleet of electric driverless vehicles for public and on-demand transportation.
The research will team up a fleet of Renault’s ZOE electric vehicles with Transdev’s on-demand dispatch, supervision and routing platform to enable clients to book rides while providing mobility operators with the means to monitor and operate self-driving car fleets.
The development will initially include field tests in Paris-Saclay.
Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior vice president of connected vehicles and mobility services, said: “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.”
