Bestmile, the leading mobility services platform used to plan, manage, and optimize autonomous and human-driven vehicle fleets, has partnered with StreetDrone, maker of intelligent, connected self-driving technology. The integration of the Bestmile Mobility Services Platform into StreetDrone’s Xenos platform enables StreetDrone to offer a complete vehicle and mobility service operating system.

Aside from major automotive manufacturers, companies developing autonomous-and-connected-vehicle technology face a daunting risk of losing critical startup time and money buying and modifying a vehicle to use to test their software. Vehicles must be drivable by wire and equipped with a technology stack that includes onboard cameras and sensors, as well as the processing power to manage the vast data generated by the vehicle. StreetDrone, referring to itself as the “Android of the autonomous vehicle world,” offers an operating system on which others can build self-driving applications.

The StreetDrone Xenos platform provides a combination of hardware — including modified Renault Twizy vehicles — and software to form a foundation for integrating the technologies that need to work together for connected and autonomous vehicles to be safe and reliable. Bestmile makes StreetDrone vehicles “fleet ready” for testing scalable fleet services in addition to testing individual vehicle performance.

Alongside XenOS integration and full drive-by-wire, StreetDrone also integrates multiple self-driving sensors, including LiDAR, RADAR, Ultrasonics, Cameras, GPS/IMU all configurable dependent on end use case and customer request.

Key Features:
- Micro 2 seater EV
- Fully electric drivetrain
- Up to 40 mile range
- Max speed 50mph
- Charge time 4 hours
- Trunk power and mountings for computation equipment
- roof mounted sensor arrays

Bestmile’s Mobility Services Platform is the only solution of its kind to enable vehicles of any brand or type to communicate and work as intelligent fleets. Its technology enables human-driven and autonomous vehicles to work together to deliver on-demand services with optimized dispatching, routing, pooling, and energy and maintenance management.

Bestmile’s platform also offers advanced matching algorithms that can process traveler, vehicle and third-party data to send the right vehicle to the right place at the right time. Data intelligence and machine learning constantly improve system performance. Service providers around the world use the platform to configure service areas, define key performance metrics such as vehicle utilization and wait times, and monitor services in real time.
