GreenPower Motor Company Inc. and Perrone Robotics Inc. (PRI), a developer of autonomy and robotics, announced a collaboration to build fully autonomous electric transit vehicles based on GreenPower’s EV Star shuttle platform.

Based on the experience of automating 30 different platforms and driving 34,000 autonomous miles, PRI created the TONYTM (TO Navigate You) general autonomy solution designed to be applied to existing vehicles. Having built autonomous vehicles since 2003, PRI has focused on the transit space to deploy proven, trusted, and commercially available vehicles into more realistic and viable deployments than those possible with slow-speed shuttles.

GreenPower was founded in 2010 with the purpose of bringing the most compelling zero-emissions buses to market. The company employs a “Start from Scratch” approach where each vehicle features a clean sheet design that ensures a safe, durable, and most importantly, reliable form of zero-emissions transportation.
