Singapore – Delphi has recently been selected by the government of Singapore to provide a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles and will develop a cloud-based mobility on demand software suite, opening up new potential autonomous markets for Delphi customers.
Delphi will conduct a trial of an urban, point-to-point, low-speed, autonomous, mobility-on-demand service in Singapore’s Autonomous Vehicles Test Bed located at one-north, a business park in the western area of the city.
The cloud-based software suite being developed will expand the capabilities of personal phone mobile apps into the realm of automated vehicles—bringing a whole new level of service.
“When we think about cloud-based services today, they are very well developed for mobile phones,” explains Glen De Vos, vice president of Delphi Services. “You have tremendous options for your mobile phone, whether it’s making reservations or shopping, news feeds or sports scores.
“The car doesn’t really have any of that. We’re talking about bringing that into the car as you make your plans.”
