In the world of autonomous driving, there exists a layer between the operating system running on the car and the algorithms that make the car truly autonomous. A number of companies use ROS, an open-source middleware for robotics, for prototyping, but you can’t do driverless with it. This is where mobility startup Renovo‘s AWare OS, which is custom-built middleware specifically designed for Level 4 autonomous driving, comes in. As Voyage founder Oliver Cameron described to me, its software and hardware redundancies can ensure a level of safety that ROS can’t match. After being introduced to Renovo, Cameron said he soon realized the value Renovo can offer from the operating system and computer perspective.

“That’s where we saw a ton of value in Renovo, so we ditched our efforts internally and made this switch,” Cameron said.

Cameron - Envisions - Partnership - Renovo - Way

Cameron envisions this being a long-term partnership with Renovo, which “takes a way a whole bunch of burden from us to manage our resources intelligently and safely think about how we roll out a driverless service.”

The plan is to integrate Renovo’s technology into Voyage’s first...
