Transdev, Delphi to develop autonomous on-demand transport system

Posted on June 8, 2017

Mobility service provider, Transdev and Delphi Automotive PLC, a developer of automated driving solutions, announced a commercial partnership to develop a global, fully automated, mobility-on-demand (AMoD) transport system.

The system will utilize Transdev Universal Routing Engine (URE) and Delphi's previously announced automated driving platform — the Centralized Sensing, Localization and Planning (CSLP) platform which Delphi is developing in partnership with Mobileye.

Transdev and Delphi will start collaborating on pilot programs in Paris-Saclay and Rouen, (Normandy) France, as the first EU driverless, on-demand mobility service on an open road.

Knowledge sharing, autonomous vehicle development
Delphi and Transdev will share knowledge of AMoD systems to develop fully autonomous vehicles, a driverless vehicle infrastructure solution (DVIS) and cloud infrastructure to support a commercial AMoD system that can operate globally.

To accomplish this, Delphi will integrate its turnkey CSLP platform into Transdev's mobility service vehicles, including a centralized computer running Delphi's Ottomatika vehicle control software, a comprehensive sensor suite, and all the required connectivity and data devices based on Control-Tec real-time analytics, Movimento's secure, over-the-air (OTA) technologies and Mobileye's REM technology. Transdev will integrate its Universal Routing Engine (URE) and remote control-command software, including intelligent infrastructure and additional software modules dedicated to public transportation and leverage its deep knowledge in client use-cases, safety and quality of service specifications for shared mobility services.

Driverless pilot programs
Transdev has initiated an Autonomous on-demand Mobility service program in Normandy this year. The collaboration with Delphi will allow the two groups to jointly test the entire system: dispatch, remote control-command and vehicles, and test the sensor architecture and intelligence for driverless last-mile and door-to-door transportation service with the next phase including a commercial service.

In Paris-Saclay, Transdev and Delphi and will collaborate on the development of a first mile, last-mile on-demand solution between a conventional railway station and the Paris-Saclay plateau and campus.
