Autonomous vehicle by-wire control systems supplier Dataspeed has signed UK e-mobility business Hypermotive to be an approved installation and distribution partner for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The company’s drive-by-wire kit is a complete hardware and software system that it says allows seamless electronic control of a vehicle’s brake, throttle, steering and shifting to enable testing for autonomous vehicle applications. Under the agreement, Hypermotive is authorized to sell, support and install this Dataspeed system.

“Hypermotive and Dataspeed have worked together on numerous autonomous vehicle builds for customers in the UK and EU, so it’s great to build on those successful collaborations and formalize our relationship going forward,” said Brad O’Nians, director at Hypermotive.

“This exciting partnership combines Dataspeed’s class-leading by-wire products with Hypermotive’s experience in electrical integration, allowing us to offer turnkey solutions to customers looking for autonomous vehicle development platforms.”
