NEVS, a leading Swedish electric vehicle manufacturer, takes another step towards autonomous drive, by using Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety technology to ensure safe deployment of electric autonomous vehicles.

NEVS (formerly Saab Automobile) and Phantom Auto, the leading provider of teleoperation safety technology for autonomous vehicles (AVs), are collaborating to ensure the optimally safe and efficient deployment of NEVS’ electric AVs throughout the world.

Phantom Auto, based in Silicon Valley, California, USA, enables a remote human operator to drive an AV when it encounters a scenario which the AV cannot handle on its own, enabling the safe and rapid deployment of AVs. NEVS is shaping mobility for a more sustainable future with its global portfolio of electric AVs. Working together, NEVS and Phantom Auto are setting the bar for safety in AV deployments.

Stefan Tilk, CEO of NEVS, said: “Our AVs must be able to drive from any point A to any point B, which means driving through all edge cases they experience on the road, such as inclement weather, road work, and any other road obstructions."

Tilk continued: “Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety technology ensures that passengers in our vehicles can safely and efficiently drive through any edge case, and that’s why I am excited and proud to call them NEVS’ partner."

Shai Magzimof, CEO of Phantom Auto, said: “It is vitally important that lifesaving AVs get deployed rapidly and at scale, but it is imperative that they are deployed in an optimally safe manner. By using Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety technology, NEVS’ electric AVs will have a remote operator in the loop who can take over control if necessary, thus ensuring the safest possible experience for passengers in their vehicles."

Magzimof continued: “We are honored to work with an electric AV manufacturer like NEVS, a true leader in sustainable mobility which shares our vision for AV safety."
