NuTonomy (stylized as nuTonomy) is an MIT spin-off technology startup company that makes software to build self-driving cars and autonomous mobile robots. The company was founded in 2013.

In August 2016, it launched its robo-taxi service (pilot project) in Singapore.

History[edit]

NuTonomy began testing its software on cars in early 2016. One of the cars used to test its software included Mitsubishi i-MiEV.[1] The product is still in research and development phase.

In August 2016, it launched its autonomous taxi service using a fleet of 6 modified Renault Zoes and Mitsubishi i-MiEVs.[2][3]

NuTonomy later signed three significant partnerships to develop its technology and service: with GrabUber’s rival in Southeast Asia, with Groupe PSA, which is supposed to provide the company with Peugeot 3008 SUVs, and the last one with Lyft to launch a robo-taxi service in Boston.[4][5][6]

In October 2017, Delphi Automotive purchased the company.[7]

Technology[edit]

NuTonomy-fitted cars use "formal logic" to decide motion, maneuverability, and speed.[8] The software guides a car on how to plan its motion through an environment.[9]
