PSA, nuTon­omy to test driver­less cars in Sin­ga­pore

New Straits Times - - Business -

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
