COAST Autonomous signs MOU with Saint Leo University in Florida

News

COAST Autonomous announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Saint Leo University, the fourth largest Catholic university in the US.

Info
COAST and Saint Leo, which has a main campus located 30 miles north of Tampa, Florida, will work together to develop a plan for implementing an autonomous system to augment existing campus transportation. The deployment will include identifying routes and running simulations to determine the optimum fleet size and vehicle types (COAST P-1 Shuttles and/or self-driving golf carts) necessary to provide an efficient and useful service.

“Our strategic plan, called ‘Renaissance 2021', charges us to grow the university, strengthen its culture, and transform the educational experience to better serve the needs of students,” said Dr. Jeffrey D. Senese, Saint Leo University President. “Introducing innovative technologies, such as those offered by COAST, fits with this vision perfectly. The COAST vehicles will enhance the campus community with greater safety, accessibility, and convenience. We are eager to work with the COAST team to prepare a detailed plan and launch Saint Leo's autonomous transportation system as soon as possible.”

“Dr. Senese and his team at Saint Leo are true visionaries. The University is a beautiful campus with amazing plans for growth,” said David M. Hickey, COAST Chairman and CEO. “We are delighted to provide a fleet of self-driving vehicles that can complement and augment the existing transportation service. Students' schedules tend not to match traditional bus timetables, but our vehicles won't mind transporting them at all times of the day or night. COAST also will look at offering on-campus deliveries and other innovative services. We are excited to successfully introduce a world-class and cutting-edge system that will benefit campus and student life.”
