Mobility services platform Bestmile
has partnered with German autonomous vehicle technology provider Hanseatische Fahrzeug Manufaktur (HFM) to optimise autonomous fleets.
The partnership integrates Bestmile’s vehicle agnostic Mobility Services Platform with HFM’s Motionboard - a customisable autonomous vehicle chassis, drive-by wire system, engine and sensors. The integration means HFM’s vehicles can be managed as intelligent fleets using the Bestmile platform.
The Bestmile-HFM partnership is on display at the ITS Urban Jungle demonstration, where a Bestmile-HFM fleet can be hailed by travellers. The vehicles navigate around fixed and moving obstacles - in the form of jungle animals – in real time in an environment designed to illustrate the challenges that autonomous vehicles face, testing the vehicles’ ability to reach their destinations.
