Airbiquity® announced its partnership with Cyngn, a provider of autonomous vehicle technology (AV). DriveMod, Cyngn’s flagship product, is a flexible solution for autonomy that can be deployed on a variety of different vehicle types in varied environments. Using Airbiquity’s over-the-air software management platform, OTAmatic®, and Cyngn’s DriveMod of autonomous driving systems, organizations can invest in AV technology that begins generating value immediately, while preparing for the challenges of the future.
Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity, said, “On the heels of announcing our OTAmatic expansion into non-automotive industry vehicles, this partnership is further validation of the need for safe and secure industrial-grade over-the-air software update management technology to ensure that autonomous vehicles are running most efficiently. Working with Cyngn, we have the opportunity to help guide the future of autonomous vehicles and make our technology accessible to more industries.”
Most industrial AV solutions involve replacing the entire company’s existing fleet of vehicles. With its partnership with Cyngn, Airbiquity and Cyngn are changing that paradigm. This partnership will result in a technology stack that will enable companies operating in the materials handling market to evolve their fleets into automated vehicles that can be refined and enhanced over time, resulting in a higher degree of efficiency and uptime for autonomous fleet management.
OTAmatic provides over-the-air (OTA) software updates and data management solutions that automate and orchestrate connected vehicle software updates. With automatic, businesses can efficiently plan and execute OTA campaigns with the refined vehicle and device targeting, privacy controls, and customizable user communications, as well as flexible deployment options.
Cyngn’s CEO Lior Tal, stated, “Autonomous vehicle fleets generate vast amounts of data, which we leverage to derive greater insights and create opportunities for increased efficiency. By using Airbiquity’s most advanced and industry-proven over-the-air update technology, companies gain access to these ever-expanding capabilities without disrupting their daily operations.”
Cyngn’s DriveMod solution provides full-stack autonomy for industrial vehicles. It offers AI, adaptive analytics, advanced safety features, and self-driving capabilities. Because DriveMod is vehicle-independent, it can work with any sort of industrial vehicle, no matter the manufacturer, type, or age. The DriveMod solution enables fleets of all sizes to drive autonomously through a simple retrofit or by incorporating the system directly into original equipment manufacturers (OEM) vehicles at assembly time.
