Velodyne Lidar announced a three-year agreement with EasyMile, a global leader in driverless technology and smart vehicle solutions. EasyMile uses Velodyne lidar sensors in production of its EZ10 autonomous passenger shuttles that are deployed on public and private roads in more than 30 countries around the world.

EasyMile will enhance its EZ10 shuttle fleet with Velodyne’s state-of-the-art sensors for safe and efficient navigation on roadways. Electric and driverless, the EZ10 shuttle was the one of the first autonomous shuttles launched in April 2015. It has a track record of over 200 deployments and more than 600,000 km driven in autonomous mode and one of the most advanced technology currently available. The shuttle, which has capacity for up to 15 passengers, includes a built-in automated electric ramp to support accessibility for individuals with disabilities.
