United Rail’s Swiss partner company is the owner and operator of an Autonomous Vehicle system that is currently in Revenue Service. The system runs under an innovation initiative and is the most advanced test projects for Autonomous Vehicles in Public Transit in the world. The System has been in Revenue Service for more than a year with more than 25,500 passengers transported, travelled roughly 1,500 hours and travelled a distance of 3,500 miles.
United Rail will act as the local contact to North American customers and will coordinate and work with the Swiss partner. With that being said, a local project team will be available to work with customers in North America.
In partnership with the Swiss partner, the United Rail team will share with the customers the system knowledge and lessons learned out of experience in developing, operating and maintaining the Swiss based AV system. Like many North American customers, our Swiss partner is a Public Transportation Agency. Our team will support the customers from the owner/operator’s perspective. This allows the customers to benefit from the experience another operator has gained through system development over the last 3 years.
