May 19, 2017 - Dubois, WY. - Since 2011, River Pilot has been creating, processing, integrating and developing routes throughout the world. We find or create alignments, verify them, add content and deploy them via commercial platforms. We are now adding this as a service for autonomous vehicle operations. We have coined the term "Defined Path Routes", "Defined Path Routing" or "Defined Path Tours".
Now, this service is in need with the advent of self driving vehicles. While GPS in our current vehicles route based on rules such as fastest time, shortest distance, off road and others principles, the new autonomous vehicles have even more routing options to deal with. In addition to routing, the vehicles will have to take in real time input and operations such as other vehicles movements, weather, accidents, random acts and more. To get to their destination, they will either follow the path the GPS creates or the pre defined route or road planned into the GPS. That's where high defintion mapping, skill, craftsmanship, planning and deployment come in.
We take the data and integrate it into a pre defined plan. The car can function on its own, remotely by an operator or as a hybrid. When waypoints, roads or POI objectives are combined and need to be followed, River Pilot has the confidence, expertise and resources to deploy routes out to the equipment.
River Pilot offers a global platform, designed to help international and regional tour operators, individuals and logistics companies the opportunity to operate self driving vehicle tours with quick ramp up. This process puts all tour operators in reach of cutting edge technology that is typically only available to all but the largest companies. Our interoperable platform removes laborious and expensive data capture, lengthy planning, R&D from the autonomous vehicle tour delivery process.The architecture lets tour operators port existing or new content right to the vehicle for consistent or custom tours.
Contact us to learn more and work with the routing experts. For complete service we recommend our MAP division.
We don't make the hardware, we make the magic.
