In the effort to enhance autonomous vehicle safety, RideCell and Dataspeed have announced a strategic partnership to share each other’s resources, data, technologies and testing.
RideCell, a platform for shared and autonomous mobility, will take advantage of Dataspeed’s established drive-by-wire solutions to begin collecting data and metrics in real-world conditions and hope to leverage these to improve vehicle safety.
Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of RideCell, said, “With our new strategic partner, RideCell will begin comprehensive data collection of Dataspeed metrics from our Auro self-driving vehicles, which were licensed in 2018 by the state of California for on-road testing. AV safety is our top priority, and our combined efforts will help improve safety for all drive-by-wire AVs.”
The integration of RideCell’s self-driving technology with Dataspeed’s drive-by-wire vehicle control will help improve AV data collection, datalogging and analytics.
These enhanced analytics will generate valuable feedback to further develop advanced drive-by-wire control offerings. Rich datalogging will also verify and document AV safety and performance, enabling third parties to thoroughly evaluate the effectiveness of the combined system in real-world, on-road environments.
“RideCell has distinguished knowledge and expertise in the shared mobility market. Its extensive research on the road will provide extremely valuable data for Dataspeed, which will accelerate new product development,” explained Paul Fleck, Dataspeed Inc. founder and CEO. “This partnership aligns with our core strategy on many fronts and will support continued growth for autonomous vehicles in the mobility-as-a-service industry.”
