Perrone Robotics, Sustainability Partners Team Up on AVs

Perrone says it will be fielding multiple AVs based on GreenPower Motor Company's EV-Star mini E-bus in Hawaii.

Autonomous vehicle (AV) kit and turnkey vehicle solutions provider Perrone Robotics, Inc. announced it will be expanding its autonomous vehicle capabilities and global reach by providing the first all-electric zero emissions, ADA-compliant, and FMVSS-compliant autonomous vehicles (AVs) to operate in the state of Hawaii.

Perrone says it will be fielding multiple AVs based on GreenPower Motor Company’s EV-Star mini E-bus outfitted with Perrone’s TONY (To Navigate You) AV product. Perrone has entered into an agreement with Sustainability Partners (SP), an Infrastructure as a Service company, to supply the AVs for operation in Hawaii. SP facilitates the purchase of new technology across industries and supplies them to customers at a standardized and affordable rate, Perrone adds. SP is under contract with the state of Hawaii to provide fleets of vehicles and related EV infrastructure.

Perrone’s modular TONY AV kit and underlying autonomy software allows for flexible adaptation to passenger or goods delivery based EVs complementing SP’s mission to convert essential infrastructure into sustainable utilities. This unique pairing allows for automated passenger and goods delivery across a wide range of zero emissions vehicles on a utility basis for deployment across the Hawaiian islands and other parts of the United States, according to the company.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Sustainability Partners to bring automated zero emissions mobility to the beautiful islands of Hawaii,” said Paul Perrone, CEO of Perrone Robotics. “These automated all-electric vehicles to be deployed with ADA-compliance and that meet federal motor vehicle safety standards, provides accessible mobility for all. Combining these automated EVs with Sustainability Partners’ revolutionary Infrastructure as a Service model produces a first in industry for bringing affordable and sustainable transportation models for human-kind today.”
