Villeurbanne, France, December 15, 2021 – 05:45 pm CET – NAVYA (FR0013018041- Navya), a leading company in autonomous mobility systems, announces the launch of version “6.X” of its Navya Drive® autonomous driving software, a major step in the transition toward the deployment of Level 4 commercial solutions.

A redesign following the best technological and industrial standards

After two years of research and development, NAVYA is releasing its new and completely redesigned software version.This update, which has been already deployed on more than 20% of their vehicle fleet, benefits from a complete overhaul of the software architecture allowing:

  • independent evolution of software bricks, without impacting other functionalities;
  • configuration adapted to the diversity of customer sites according to their operational environment
  • uniformity of structural developments, applicable to all current platforms, Autonom Shuttle® and Autonom Tract®, as well as to future third-party platforms such as the IT3 bluebus developed as part of the EFIBA project.

This new “6.X” version of Navya Drive® rebuilds the software architecture in line with the best industrial standards. It will facilitate the next iterations available to customers and partners on all applications.

Redesigned features for complex operations

NAVYA is expanding its range of activities by securing and improving key operational functions, focusing on:

  • the use of a new High Definition mapping format. This map incorporates a higher level of accuracy for optimized autonomous driving in challenging and changing environments;
  • a unique V2X technology module providing a global compliance with connected infrastructure systems in many countries.

These improvements are already being seen in NAVYA’s day-to-day operations, providing greater flexibility in addressable use cases and time savings in the commissioning of its solutions on customer sites.

This new version of Navya Drive®, by becoming the core software for all applications, confirms NAVYA’s technological leadership and its strategic positioning as a provider of autonomous driving applications, whether for people or goods transportation

«The launch of the new “6.X” version of Navya Drive® software is a major technological breakthrough that reinforces the differentiating character of our solutions. Our proprietary software, consolidating more than six years of experimentation and based on a new basic architecture, allows a modularity of applications adapted to various use cases. This internationally recognized and proven know-how demonstrates NAVYA’s technological leadership in the design and development of level 4 autonomous mobility systems ».
