Villeurbanne, France, January 18th, 2022 – 07:30 am CET – NAVYA (FR0013018041- Navya), a leading company in autonomous mobility systems, achieves a significant milestone and will present the remote supervision of a fleet of autonomous vehicles at the AUTONOMY PARIS exhibition to be held March 16th &17th 2022.

In July 2020, NAVYA achieved a major breakthrough in autonomous mobility with the first Level 4 operation, i.e. the deployment of a fully autonomous shuttle without an operator on board. Today, NAVYA is going one step further with the implementation of its remote supervision system for a fleet of shuttles, also referred as “shepherding”, a decisive breakthrough for the industrialization of Level 4 solutions.

“These new developments provide transport operators with the critical functionalities to remotely control a fleet of autonomous vehicles. They improve service availability and ensure the safety of all shuttles and their passengers. This is a key achievement for NAVYA to launch the commercialization of its Level 4 solutions“.

Sophie Desormière, CEO of NAVYA

More specifically, NAVYA will demonstrate:

  • The automation of supervision functions on a fleet of shuttles without an operator on board;
  • A self-diagnosis of the shuttles operation and an automated monitoring of their environment; “FailSafe scenarios”;
  • Real-time exchange of technical/audio/video data, when required, between each shuttle and the Centralized Control Center ;
  • Feedback and analysis of relevant internal and third-party data within the Centralized Control Center to ensure proactive supervision.

“NavyaDrive® and NavyaOperate® are the two systems that make up the software foundation of our autonomous driving system. Combined with the latest connectivity technologies and our data intelligence algorithms, they enable the industrialization of our developments within the framework of leading collaborative and strategic projects currently being finalized”.

Olivier Le Cornec, CTO of NAVYA
