aiPod, the developer of a city-integrated Mobility-as-a-Service platform, has announced a strategic alliance with Renovo, a mobility software technology company. The partnership will begin immediately.
The new alliance will help achieve that mission by integrating Renovo’s AWare technology into aiPod vehicles enabling them to be controlled by an automated driving system and run other applications. The first implementation will be in the introductory pilot of Mobility-as-a-Service being conducted by aiPod in London beginning in early 2019.
aiPod and Renovo enable cities to prepare for the near-term future in which the roads and sidewalks are increasingly used by competing mobility providers. Cities are especially eager for integrated mobility solutions that address the congestion and traffic safety problems on their doorsteps. aiPod is developing its platform, of which Renovo’s technology will now become a part, and has started to introduce it in selected cities globally.
