Peugeot going driverless in Singapore

(SINGAPORE)

Peugeot is partnering with a self-driving tech company to test autonomous vehicles in Singapore.

Software developed by nuTonomy will be installed in a bespoke Peugeot 3008, with trials expected to begin in September.

Anne Laliron, Head of the Business Lab, Groupe PSA, said: “This collaboration is a significant step towards fully autonomous vehicles, which will enable us to offer different mobility solutions to our customers. We are excited to work together with nuTonomy’s team of software and robotics experts to make the concept of self-driving PSA cars more and more concrete.”

The collaboration will allow both companies to assess how the technology performs in an urban setting.

Karl lagnemma, CEO and Co-founder of nuTonomy, added: “We’re confident that working with Groupe PSA will bring us closer to our goal of deploying a safe, efficient, fully autonomous mobility-on-demand transportation service for urban driving environments. We look forward to future collaboration opportunities with PSA.”

The pair plan to test in other cities if the Singapore project goes well.
