Two heavy-hitters behind driverless cars are teaming up.

In late February, the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev announced they would jointly develop fleets of electric driverless vehicles for public and on-demand transportation. In a statement, Renault-Nissance Alliance detailed how it will work with Transdev to create a comprehensive, modular transportation system to allow folks to book rides and mobility operators to monitor and operate self-driving car fleets.

Moving Forward

"As the mobility services landscape keeps evolving, we have a great opportunity to offer innovative, connected mobility solutions for the evolving needs of our customers, fully aligned with our vision of a zero-emission, zero-fatalities society," said Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior vice president of connected vehicles and mobility services. "Partnering with Transdev allows us to share our knowledge as leaders in electric vehicles, autonomous drive and connected-car technologies with one of the largest multimodal mobility operators worldwide. Together we will develop an advanced driverless mobility system that will enhance existing public and on-demand transport systems."

Initally, the research will include field tests in Paris-Saclay with Renault ZOEs -- its top-selling electric vehicle in Europe -- and Transdev's on-demand dispatch, supervision and routing platform.

"The future of mobility will be P.A.C.E. -- personalized, autonomous, connected and electric," said Yann Leriche, chief performance officer at Transdev. "As a worldwide leader in public transport and on-demand shared services, we are committed to pioneer in mobility to always offer our clients the best solutions for their journeys."

A Powerful Team

The partnership makes good global sense. Transdev is a pioneer in autonomous vehicle services, as it operates the world's first commercial driverless service on a campus in France. For the Renault-Nissan Alliance, this driverless-car endeavor builds upon its growing efforts to accelerate the development of advanced connected-car technologies and mobility services. The company is also working with Microsoft to develop a platform that will boost the customer experience by making driving more intuitive, intelligent and enjoyable.

Two cutting-edge companies are taking the technology behind driverless cars to the next level.
