Mass Transit

Robotic Research’s mission to increase the safety and efficiency of mobility begins with mass transportation.  Our systems improve the safety of the passengers while obeying the rules of the road and providing safety to fellow vehicles and pedestrians.  Our platform agnostic autonomy kit (AutoDrive) can be installed onto almost any platform with varying levels of autonomy.  These capabilities are currently being evaluated for fourteen (14) different pilot programs around the US.  The autonomy requirements include:  convoying in GPS-denied areas, yard operations, traffic throughput increase, and overall safety improvements.  Robotic Research’s AutoDrive provides technology far exceeding standard ADAS capabilities on its way to Level 4 autonomy.

New Flyer

In an exclusive partnership with New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., the largest bus manufacturer in North America, we are advancing autonomous bus technology by developing and deploying advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) in heavy-duty transit bus applications.

The partnership between New Flyer and Robotic Research will result in an Xcelsior CHARGE™ battery-electric bus equipped with Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Standard J3016 Level 4 ADAS technology. SAE J3016 Level 4 is defined as high automation with the vehicle performing all driving tasks autonomously while actively monitoring the driving environment. The technology is currently being operated at Robotic Research closed-course facilities.
