Beep and Oxa Partner to Deploy Autonomous Shuttles in the US

Autonomous mobility provider, Beep and autonomous vehicle software developer, Oxa have announced a new partnership to deploy autonomous shuttles across the US.

Under this partnership, two passenger shuttles driven by Oxa’s autonomy software have commenced trails at the SunTrax testing facility in Florida.

These units are then scheduled to commence public passenger services in autumn 2023.

This launch marks UK-based Oxa’s entry into the US market. It will see Oxa’s autonomy software installed in a variety of vehicle types operated by Beep, including current and future vehicle platforms.

Gavin Jackson, CEO at Oxa said:

“We are thrilled to be working with Beep to deploy our unique autonomy solution to enable safe, secure and efficient passenger transportation in the United States. This marks a significant step forward for Oxa and the future of self-driving technology. Through partnering with Beep, we have the potential to drive several thousand vehicles over the coming years to make Oxa software the most widely utilised AV platform on the planet.”

The Oxa Driver uses sensor data from cameras, lidar and radar, enabling it to gain a more comprehensive view of the world compared to vehicles that rely solely on cameras. This fused sensor technology is the first of its kind to be deployed in a passenger shuttle in the US.

The software uses AI to accurately sense and predict changes to the vehicle’s environment while learning from previous journeys. This process allows the system’s capabilities to grow and improve over time.

Joe Moye, CEO at Beep said:

“We’re delighted to partner with Oxa to bring new and enhanced electric, autonomous vehicles to market as we continue to expand our testing and our business across the United States. Oxa’s self-driving software, integrated with our command centre and service management software, provides a safe and sophisticated autonomous solution that will enhance our passenger experience and operational capabilities, making more accessible, true autonomous use cases a near-term reality.”
