Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) has announced the completion of facilities expansion involving their unmanned vehicle test track.
This expansion includes a tripling of the test tracks and the creation of more realistic urban scenarios with the needed signage and road striping to develop and test new driverless vehicle algorithms.
“This new facility expansion is critical in the support of our new partners. Our proving ground is a test city, it’s a test mine, it’s a test farm field. We have built into our facility all of these different environments to enable rapid development and rigorous 24/7 product verification and validation testing.” says Mel Torrie, ASI co-founder and CEO.
“This facility expansion not only allows us to do more testing, but also provides more office space for the quickly growing engineering team,” says Mr. Torrie. ASI is currently automating testing for three of the five big automotive companies in Detroit and is expanding into Europe and China with partnerships starting in January. Other markets like Mining, Agriculture, and Construction leverage the same underlying robotics platform foundation but have different “apps” that are customized to the unique needs of each.
