What started out as a temporary pilot project to test robotaxi Service in LAS VEGAS has turned into a multi-year partnership between self-driving software company Aptiv and Lyft and new milestones that suggest operation is ramping up. Companies announced Tuesday that theyve give 100 000 pay rides in Aptivs self-driving vehicles via the Lyft app. To our knowledge, this is the largest open-to-public commercial pilot, Aptiv Autonomous Mobility President Karl Iagnemma said in a recent interview. To me, this partnership is a great example of the next-generation ecosystem at work. Milestone has a few important caveats. Aptivs self-driving vehicles which initially begin with the BMW 5 series have a human safety driver behind the wheel to take over if needed. Human drivers operate vehicles manually in parking lots and hotel lobby areas. The program, even if with those human safety drivers behind the wheel, has proven invaluable to companies, according to Iagnemma and Jody Kelman, who lead the self-driving platform team at Lyft. Weve got something here, Kelman say. This is really a blueprint for what future mobility partnerships could look like. Companies in this so-call race to commercially deploy on-demand ride-hailing services using self-driving vehicles must master more than technical bits. Fleet management, real-time routing and designing an approachable user interface are just a few critical components needed to operate a profitable robotaxi Service. The program has taught Aptiv how to get and keep a fleet of autonomous vehicles on the road and keep them highly utilized, Iagnemma say, later adding that this project positions Lyft and Aptiv to be major winners in this space. Companies also learn how to work with various regulatory bodies, in this case, with City of LAS VEGAS, Clark County and regions transit authority. Lyft and Aptiv first launched the pilot in January 2018 as a one-week experiment and then announced plans to extend the program. The program surpass 5 000 self-driving rides by August and jump to more than 25 000 pay Autonomous rides by December 2018, all while maintaining an average passenger rating of 4. 95 out of five stars, Aptiv said at the time. By May 2019, companies report they had give more than 50 000 paid self-driving rides in LAS VEGAS. Aptivs investment in LAS VEGAS expand as those ridership numbers grow. The company opened in December 2018 a 130 000-square-foot Technical Center in the City to house its fleet of Autonomous vehicles as well as an engineering team dedicated to research and development of software and hardware systems, validation and mapping.

New mobility technology

Aptiv, US auto supplier and self-Driving software company, is opening an Autonomous Mobility Center in Shanghai to focus on development and eventual deployment of its Technology on public roads. Expansion marks the fifth market where Aptiv has set up R & D, testing or operational facilities. Aptiv has Autonomous Driving operations in Boston, Las Vegas, PITTSBURGH and Singapore. But China is perhaps its most ambitious endeavor yet. Aptiv has never had any AV operations in China, but it does have a long history in the country, including manufacturing and engineering facilities. The company, in its earlier forms as Delphi and Delco, has been in China since 1993 experience that will be invaluable as it tries to bring its Autonomous vehicle efforts into new market, Aptiv Autonomous Mobility President Karl Iagnemma told TechCrunch in a recent interview. Long-term opportunity in China is off the charts, Iagnemma say, noting a recent McKinsey study that claims the country will host two-thirds of the world's autonomous-driven miles by 2040 and be trillion-dollar mobility service opportunity. For Aptiv, it has always been a question of not if, but when, were going to enter the Chinese market, he add. Aptiv will have self-Driving cars testing on public roads by second half of 2019. Our experience in other markets has shown that in this industry, you learn by doing, Iagnemma explain. And it remark that Iagnemma can stand by. Iagnemma is co-founder of self-Driving car startup NuTonomy, one of the first to launch robotaxi service in 2016 in Singapore that the public along with human safety drivers could use. NuTonomy was acquired by Delphi in 2017 for $450 million. NuTonomy became part of Aptiv after its spin-off from Delphi was complete. Aptiv is also in discussions with potential partners for mapping and commercial deployment of Aptiv vehicles in China. Some of those partnerships will likely mimic the types of relationships Aptiv has created here in the US, notably with Lyft. Aptivs self-Driving vehicles operate on the Lyfts ride-hailing platform in Las Vegas and have provided more than 40 000 pay autonomous rides in Las Vegas via the Lyft app. Aptiv also will have to create new kinds of partnerships unlike those it has in the US due to restrictions and rules in China around data collection, intellectual property and creating high-resolution map data.

Smart cars / Smart cities

The Annual Consumer Electronics Show is in full swing this week in Las Vegas, and next-generation transportation is a major topic. With more than 160 vehicle tech exhibitors, including 10 auto manufacturers, CES Vehicle section is larger than many stand-alone car shows. CES 2020 is also featuring latest in drones, self-driving vehicles and other connect Mobility Technologies. Connectivity is gaining momentum as a pervasive theme for all CES categories, not surprising in an era in which most electronic Devices join Internet Of Things. Like most industries, lines between stand-alone products and interconnected services are blurring for Consumer Technologies and the companies behind them. And whether its connected car, Smart road or autonomous public transport, they all depend on low-latency, secure connectivity with Digital ecosystems of stakeholders to exchange data and insights. Self-driving Connected Cars are usually top of mind when considering the future of Smart Transportation. Artificial Intelligence and rapidly evolving Vehicle-To-Everything Technologies enable vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, pedestrians and Smart city Infrastructure managing roads, traffic and parking. Pervasive Mobile networks, regulatory mandates and government support are also helping to drive adoption, which is only expected to pick up speed when 5G arrives. Here are a few of the automotive innovations on stage this week at CES: Autonomous driving and connect service innovations are being shaped by partnerships and open - source platforms. Volkswagen and Ford are partnering with Argo AI for its self-driving Platform, while Hyundai and Aptiv have started a joint venture to develop Autonomous driving systems based on Aptivs Smart Vehicle Architecture. Automotive Grade Linux, cross-industry open source Platform for Connected car Technologies, will also have 20 + demonstrations such as Mazdas new connect Services, app-base service that lets you control and monitor certain vehicle functions remotely. Improve sensor technologies, such as RoboSenses Smart LiDAR sensor with embedded AI, are advancing the safety of self-driving vehicles and opening the door for more robo taxi deployments. WeRide, Waymo and Lyft have already launched robo-taxi services, and Daimler recently launched a pilot in California. CES attendees will be able to book ride on Continentals Autonomous shuttle through a smartphone app. Honda will have its Honda Personal Assistant on hand, voice-enable AI Assistant for drivers that is capable of understanding context, such as users ' location or previous queries, to support natural interactions. Anytime stand-alone object gets connect, IT becomes part of the Internet Of Things, and cars are no different. All Of interactions between vehicles and people, infrastructure, other vehicles and partners IT connect to represent data exchange in the Digital ecosystem. And with all that data comes an opportunity for new value and players to join and enrich the ecosystem even further. One example is Huecore, Insurance Data-as-A service Platform based on Connected License Plate that provides insurers with enriched Data to identify risk exposure based on individuals ' driving behaviors.

Lyfts self-driving efforts

The Lyfts Level 5 team is a group of data scientists, apply researchers, product managers, operations managers, and others working to build self-driving system for ride-sharing. Since the division was founded in July 2017, group has developed novel 3D segmentation frameworks, new methods of evaluating energy efficiency in vehicles, and techniques for tracking vehicle movement using crowdsourced maps. Earlier this year, Lyft announced the opening of a new road test site in Palo Alto, California, near its Level 5 division headquarters. At the new Center, engineers will mimic real-world driving scenarios involving intersections, traffic lights, roadway merges, pedestrian pathways, and other public road conditions, components of which will be reconfigurable. Development comes after a year in which Lyft expanded access to its employee self-driving service in Palo Alto with human safety drivers on board in a limited area. The company says that in 2019 it will increase available routes threefold and that it plans to grow regions cover rapidly. In November, Lyft revealed that it is now driving 4 times more miles on a quarterly basis than it was six months ago and that it has about 400 employees dedicated to Autonomous vehicle technology development globally. According to the company, 96% of people who try hailing driverless vehicles on the Lyft app say they want to do so again. In May, Lyft partnered with Google parent company Alphabets Waymo to enable customers to hail driverless Waymo cars from Lyft app in Phoenix. More recently, Lyft released an open source data set for Autonomous vehicle development it said was one of largest of its kind, with over 55 000 human-label 3D annotated frames of traffic agents. And it details the AI planning model behind its self-driving cars. According to marketing firm ABI, as many as 8 million driverless cars will be added to the roads in 2025, and Research and Markets anticipate that there will be some 20 million autonomous cars in operation in the US by 2030.
