Groupe PSA Partners nuTonomy to Test Fully Autonomous Vehicles in Singapore Peugeot 3008

nuTonomy, the leading developer of state-of- the-art software for self-driving cars, and Groupe PSA today announced a strategic partnership to customize PEUGEOT 3008s with self-driving technology for on-road testing of fully autonomous cars in Singapore.

 

The Partnership

The initial phase of the partnership, nuTonomy will install its software, along with specialized sensors and computing platforms, into PEUGEOT 3008 vehicles that have been customized by PSA’s innovation teams.

 

The Trial

nuTonomy expects to complete the integration of its autonomous vehicle (AV) system this summer, with on-road testing of the self-driving 3008s beginning in Singapore in September.

 

The Test Site: One-North

nuTonomy has been conducting public trials of an on-demand autonomous vehicle as a mobility service in Singapore since August 2016. The partnership with Groupe PSA expands nuTonomy’s test fleet, which operates in One-North, the AV test circuit designated by the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA).

 

Anne Laliron, Head of the Business Lab, Groupe PSA, said, “This collaboration is a significant step towards fully autonomous vehicles, which will enable us to offer different mobility solutions to our customers. We are excited to work together with nuTonomy’s team of software and robotics experts to make the concept of self-driving PSA cars more and more concrete.”

 

Karl lagnemma, CEO and Co-founder of nuTonomy, said, “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. We look forward to future collaboration opportunities with PSA.”

 

Push to Pass

This collaboration bolsters Groupe PSA’s ambition of becoming the preferred mobility provider for customers worldwide, as described in the company’s strategic plan “Push to Pass” issued in April 2016. This collaboration, which is being implemented under the Groupe PSA’s “Autonomous Vehicle for All” (AVA) program, will bring to market on-demand mobility solutions offering full autonomy.
