EasyMile will enhance its EZ10 shuttle fleet with Velodyne’s 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.

“For precise navigation in real time, the EZ10s use our algorithm that fuses data from a variety of perception sensors, including LiDAR and camera, and localization sensors, including GPS, INS and odometry. Velodyne LiDARs along with radar scan for objects, vehicles, animals and people that might pose a collision threat, feeding that information to the vehicle’s control software,” explained Olivier Pairot, EasyMile’s Director of Product Marketing.
