rideOS, a technology platform for transportation fleets, has launched its new Ridehail Platform — including a Ridehail API and open-source mobile apps.
According to the company, the Ridehail API offers an easy way for automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), autonomous vehicle (AV) companies, and transportation network companies (TNCs) to create and manage their own ridehailing network using rideOS’ underlying technology.
The rideOS Ridehail Platform claims to offer to the customers the flexibility to choose from integration points across the technology stack:
• Open-Source Apps to deploy fleets with less integration time. Customers can rebrand the app by inserting their logo and swapping in their desired color palette.
• Ridehail API to match riders with vehicles and manage trip state. This simple, easy-to-use API is the fastest way to incorporate all of rideOS’ underlying optimization and routing services into any customer’s existing app.
• Fleet Planner API to build plans for fleets of vehicles including single rider and carpooling rides. This sophisticated optimization service is suitable for companies who already have basic dispatching services in an existing app, but would like to offer pooled trips or improve their fleet efficiency.
• Routing API to get routes and accurate ETAs based on traffic conditions and the constraints of a given vehicle. The rideOS routing engine was specifically designed with AVs in mind, but is also compatible with human-driven vehicles. It offers customers the ability to define keep-out zones and restrict certain maneuvers based on the capabilities of their autonomous vehicle.
The new Ridehail Platform shows rideOS’ current focus on creating bespoke ridehailing technologies. In the near future, the company expects to offer similar products for other use cases such as goods delivery, logistics, and industrial robotics.
