Empty Vehicle Autonomous Vehicle Technology—for Shared Mobility and Commercial Fleets
In a carsharing or commercial fleet business, vehicles are frequently parked in low demand locations or are unavailable for use as workers are either unavailable to relocate them to high-demand locations or to take them for routine maintenance tasks such as cleaning, fueling, and non-critical maintenance.
Technology developed by Auro, autonomously moves such ‘empty’ vehicles to high demand locations and maintenance depots, ensuring a lower vehicle downtime and a significant increase in revenue for fleet operators.
Building L4 autonomy for near-term real-world applications
By focusing on ‘Empty Vehicle Automation’ use cases, we are able to optimize our systems for low-speed operations, non-peak hours, and select routes, avoiding heavy intersections and complex road conditions. Because of these advantages, autonomy solutions being developed by Auro can be deployed for real-world applications much sooner than L4 autonomous robotaxis.
Rebalance carsharing fleets to high-demand locations
Reposition cars from low-demand zones to high-demand zones, increasing fleet utilization by up to 100%.
Offer doorstep delivery of rental cars
Unlock new use cases and revenue streams by bringing the convenience of Uber and Lyft to carsharing by enabling doorstep delivery.
Dispatch vehicles for cleaning and fueling operations
Reduce fleet downtime and put vehicles back on the road by autonomously dispatching vehicles to service centers for non-critical maintenance tasks.
Automate driving for B2B short-haul logistics
Enable autonomous deliveries between warehouses and local (fixed) stores, saving human dependency and cost.

Deep expertise and IP in Autonomous Driving Technology
Compact sensor suite built for shared mobility fleets
Our sensor suite is designed to address the operational challenges of shared mobility fleets such as vandalism and the need for frequent maintenance.
Full-stack L4 system
Our full-stack AV system includes both the required software and hardware that can be deployed by fleets as a turn-key solution.
A learning-based framework that scales up exponentially
Fueled by an ever-growing scenario database, naturalistic human driving data, and proprietary scenario description language, Auro is leveraging Deep Learning in modules such as our Prediction System and Behavior Planner for fast learning.
Access to Scenario Database
Leveraging our partner ecosystem, we continue to build one of the largest databases of scenarios collected from real-world road miles, which offers an unparalleled advantage in training and testing Deep Learning algorithms.
Rich prior experience of shipping commercial AVs
From deploying one of the first commercial autonomous ridehailing services at Santa Clara University to partnering with an automotive regulatory body, Auro has rich prior experience of deploying real-world autonomous solutions.
Integration with the Ridecell mobility platform
Leverage multiple mobility models for your autonomous service, including on-demand, fixed-route navigation and pooling.
End-to-end autonomous mobility solution available today
Running a successful autonomous mobility service takes much more than just autonomous vehicles.
