GreenPower Motor Company, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of a diverse line of electric powered buses for the transit, shuttle, tourist and school sectors and Perrone Robotics, a pioneer in the development 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.
