Autonomous shuttle platforms are advancing quickly. Not just to react, but to perceive their environments and respond accordingly to random and unexpected situations, which are mostly induced by human drivers.
Additionally, machine learning advancements are improving safety and rider experience every day these autonomous testing vehicles are on the road. The low speed, geofenced, multi-passenger solutions in production today will greatly impact the future all autonomous vehicles.
Conversation with Joe Moye, CEO, Beep, Inc.
One such company that is playing a part in this (r)evolution is Beep, Inc., which delivers next-generation services for passenger mobility to fleet operators in planned communities and low speed environments across the public and private sectors, including transportation hubs, medical and university campuses, town centers and more.
And joining us this week to talk about autonomous passenger and fleet mobility is Beep, Inc. CEO Joe Moye.

Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot Owner PSA Agree to Merger
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and Peugeot maker PSA Group of France agreed to a nearly $50 billion merger that, if concluded, will mark one of the biggest auto industry consolidation deals in two decades.
By negotiating the deal, FCA Chairman John Elkann is acting on a lesson passed on from the Italian-American car maker’s longtime Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne, who died last year: Merge and grow, or fade into irrelevance.
Caterpillar’s autonomous vehicles may be used by NASA to mine the moon and build a lunar base
Caterpillar’s autonomous and remote-controlled mining equipment could very well find itself on the moon when NASA is scheduled to return to the lunar surface in 2024. Operator-less drilling and digging machines will mine water, oxygen-rich rocks and moon dust for use in 3-D printing of various materials. This is part of CEO Jim Umpleby’s goal to grow Caterpillar’s digital and autonomy businesses as a way to develop new profit streams for the company.
