Navia is an eight-person robotic shuttle making its appearance at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, and we took it for a ride.
Produced by a company called Induct, the vehicle is designed to be used in city centers, such as college and business campuses, malls, parks, and military bases. A company representative calls it the "last mile solution," meaning it provides transportation solutions in areas that current transit cannot reach.
Rather than depend on GPS, the Navia is equipped with lasers and cameras for accuracy, teamed with software that can record routes, detect pedestrians, and see the parameters of the road. We were able to ride in the Navia and think it’s a clever mobility solution. Currently, it is in use in cities such as Singapore, but U.S. availability is forthcoming and will be announced in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, check out our video on this innovative next step on the road to autonomous transportation.
