PSA, nuTonomy to test driverless cars in Singapore
PARIS: French carmaker PSA said yesterday it was teaming up with nuTonomy to integrate the American startup’s software into one of its vehicles for on-road testing of fully autonomous cars in Singapore.
nuTonomy will install its software, along with sensors and computing platforms, into customised Peugeot 3008 vehicles, with the vehicles expected to hit the streets in September.
A company spun off from leading United States research uni- versity MIT, nuTonomy has been behind a public trial of driverless taxis that got underway in Singapore last year, although engineers rode along to take over in case of a problem.
“We’re confident that working with Groupe PSA will bring us closer to our goal of deploying a safe, efficient, fully autonomous mobility-on-demand transportation service for urban driving environments,” said nuTonomy chief executive Karl lagnemma in a statement. AFP
