NAVYA Partners With Via To Introduce App Enabling Safe And Secure Autonomous Rides


Using The Via App, NAVYA AUTONOM CAB Riders Can Book And Control Their Travel Efficiently And Safely While Also Tailoring The Experience During Their Journey

Autonomous vehicle maker NAVYA and Via, a developer of on-demand shared ride technology, announced a new offering that will enhance both the convenience, safety and user experience of autonomous vehicle rides. Using the Via app, now integrated with the technology within NAVYA's AUTONOM CAB, customers can easily and securely book and control their autonomous vehicle travel experience right from their smartphone.

Via is unveiling for the first time at CES revolutionary new technology within its app to control the rider's "handshake" with an autonomous vehicle. With just a tap on the Via app, passengers can request a ride in NAVYA's AUTONOM CAB, control the vehicle's door opening once it arrives at the pickup spot, and command it to close the door and begin the ride once they're safely aboard. Additionally, passengers can select their choice of music, connect to the on-board WiFi and engage with other amenities of the AUTONOM CAB.

"Via has developed the operating system that will power the autonomous vehicle fleets of the future, with dynamic routing and efficient matching of multiple passengers going in the same direction. We're excited to demonstrate for the first time how Via's shared ride technology seamlessly integrates with autonomous vehicles. We are especially thrilled to launch our first AV demonstration with NAVYA, a company that shares our vision for a future of sustainable, shared transportation," says Daniel Ramot, Co-founder and CEO of Via.

NAVYA's recently unveiled AUTONOM CAB, a breakthrough vehicle without a traditional cockpit or steering wheel, is 100% autonomous, electric, and optimized for private and shared rides for up to six passengers.

"NAVYA and Via share a vision of helping cities overcome the challenges of pollution and congestion by fluidifying the traffic flow. NAVYA has designed the AUTONOM CAB specifically for private and shared rides, while Via is revolutionizing urban transit with its exceptional shared ride algorithm. We're very excited to launch such a partnership through our interoperable network system that brings these two companies together and adds another way for customers to access our CAB," says Christophe Sapet, NAVYA CEO.
