Beep, a Florida-based autonomous mobility solutions company, has announced a partnership with Bestmile, to use the its Fleet Orchestration Platform to plan, manage and orchestrate its autonomous shuttle fleets.
Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Beep offers autonomous mobility solutions to fleet owners and operators in low-speed environments across the public and private sector.
From route planning to fully managed autonomous vehicle
transportation services, Beep’s offerings are designed to drive differentiation, innovation, and a superior passenger experience with five essential benefits:
- Safety: Driverless systems are void of human error, reducing the number of accidents and lowering liability exposure
- Sustainability: Beep’s platform is being developed from inception to be a global ecosystem of passenger-focused applications
- Efficiency: Remote managed services provide immediate access to skilled experts, lowering total cost of ownership
- Technology: State-of-the-art Lidar sensors, cameras, GPS RTK, IMU, and odometry are processed with deep learning algorithms
- Reduced footprint: Electric drivetrains guarantee a positive environmental impact on the community, reducing congestion with zero operating emissions
Beep plans to begin rolling out its services in central Florida in coming months, integrating Bestmile’s fleet orchestration solutions into its managed service offering that includes the management and monitoring of its AV fleets of vehicles manufactured by Navya.
The Bestmile platform will enable Beep to continually optimize all aspects of its autonomous fleet performance, including vehicle maintenance and service delivery to data analytics and machine learning for continuous improvement.
Bestmile’s platform has supported fleets on three continents since 2014, including the first autonomous fleets to operate on city streets as part of public transport networks.
The platform claims to include a complete suite of operator control systems and supports mobile applications that can be easily configured, and the platform’s APIs can be used to integrate operator tools and applications.
The technology is cloud-based and can manage multiple fleets and locations, and offers multiple points of integration with operator, vehicle, driver, traveler and external data.
