For Immediate Release
BOCA RATON, FL, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Guident Corp., the developer of software solutions for remote monitoring and teleoperation of autonomous vehicles, and Perrone Robotics, Inc., a leading provider of autonomous vehicle kits and full autonomy software are excited to announce the execution of a strategic alliance.
The objective of the alliance is to seamlessly integrate GUIDENT’s remote monitoring and teleoperation solution (RMCC) with Perrone Robotics TONY AV kit for highly automated vehicles. The scalable deployment of safe & reliable autonomous vehicles requires a fast, reliable network coupled with low latency, remote monitoring and control software, to facilitate fleet level management of multiple concurrently operating autonomous vehicles.
With Perrone Robotics TONYTM AV Kit and GUIDENT’s RMCC teleoperations communications system, municipalities and other fleet operators will be able to provide testing environments and commercially deploy Level–4 autonomy AV shuttles across a wide variety and quantity of vehicles.
This strategic alliance is a key milestone for both companies as we seek to seamlessly enhance the scalable deployment of safe and reliable autonomous vehicle transport.
Paul Perrone, CEO of Perrone Robotics, said, “We are really excited to partner with Guident to incorporate their remote monitoring and control software into vehicles equipped with our TONY full autonomous driver kit . As we are now addressing client demands for fleet level operations of multiple vehicles, and driverless operations, bringing remote monitoring and teleoperation controls to operations becomes a key element for scale. Together, Guident and Perrone Robotics are able to bring scalable fleet-level autonomous vehicle operations to clients for the first time.”
”We believe this strategic alliance will be a significant step towards the adoption of autonomous vehicles for municipalities. Perrone’s TONY AV kit coupled with Guident’s RMCC is a turn-key solution for any municipality seeking vehicle independent, automated transit of people and goods in geo-fenced and localized operations,” said Harald Braun, Executive Chairman of Guident.
According to Allied Market Research, “the autonomous vehicle market is expected to reach $556 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 39%.1 Contactless or “touch-free” delivery is in high demand due to the COVID 19 pandemic.2,3 Guident believes this increased demand will accelerate the roll-out of land-based delivery drones for people, and a wide variety of products to improve mobility and reduce the costs of deliveries.
