Navya & REE Automotive to co-develop Level 4 autonomous & electric systems

France-based Navya, a leading company in autonomous driving systems and Israel-based REE Automotive have signed an agreement to collaborate in the development of a Level 4 autonomous system including REE corner electric car technology and Navya’s self-driving solutions. To learn more about Navya check our latest report about Navya’s recent launch of new lines in Germany. This is a company we will hear a lot about in the future.

REE is disrupting the e-mobility industry through its highly modular and disruptive REEcorner technology which integrates critical vehicle components (steering, braking, suspension, powertrain and control) into the arch of the wheel. This makes rolling out fleets of electric cars much easier. Something we at WeGoElectric Support of course.
I will be writing a bit more about Ree Automotive in the coming days so stay tuned. This might be a company that we will hear a lot about.

Navya is a leading player in level 4 autonomous driving systems for passenger and goods transport. Since 2015, Navya autonomous mobility solutions have been first to market and first to on-road service in real conditions. The Autonom Shuttle, the main development platform, is dedicated to passenger transport. Since its launch, more than 180 units have been sold in 23 countries as of 31 December, 2020. The Autonom Tract 135 is designed for goods transport and is expected to launch in the near future.

The partners say the co-developed next generation level 4 autonomous system will be designed as a high standard, state of the art autonomous mobility solution with key competitive advantages considering quality, cost and performance. Safety first principles will be implemented based on very high safety requirements with regards to ISO 26262:2018 and ISO/PAS 21448:2019.
