For road tests planned for the current year, nuTonomy will integrate its self-service software and sensor systems into the SUV Peugeot 3008. The goal of the project is delivering thousands of fully autonomous vehicles to cities around the world.

In the initial phase of the partnership, nuTonomy will integrate its software along with customized sensors and computer platforms into the Peugeot 3008. NuTonomy assumes that the integration of its systems for autonomous vehicles will be completed this summer and road testing of the Peugeot 3008 in Singapore can begin in September.

Both companies regard the seamless integration of the self-driving software into the vehicle’s hardware as an important step towards the mass production of driverless vehicles. This partnership offers both companies the opportunity to analyze the performance of self-propelled vehicles on the one hand and, on the other hand, to examine the experience reports of an on-demand mobility service in the urban area.

Anne Laliron, Head of Business Lab of Groupe PSA, said: “This collaboration is a significant step towards fully autonomous vehicles, enabling us to offer our clients different mobility services. We are looking forward to working with the ‘nuTonomy’ team to make the concept of self-propelled PSA models more and more concrete. “

Following the initial phase of this partnership, the companies will are planning to extend their test initiatives to other major cities around the world. Groupe PSA’s Business Lab and Innovation Division units are entering into this partnership in order to open up and evaluate new business areas, especially in the fields of mobility and digital technologies, the company said.

Since August 2016, nuTonomy is conducting public trials in Singapore with an independent on-demand mobility service. By partnering with Groupe PSA, the test fleet of nuTonomy, which is currently operated in One-North, the test track released by the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA), is growing.
