Beep, a Florida-based autonomous mobility solutions company, formed a partnership with fleet orchestration platform Bestmile. Through the partnership, Beep will leverage the market leading technology and tools that Bestmile offers to plan, manage, and orchestrate its autonomous shuttle fleets.

Beep, headquartered in Orlando, offers autonomous mobility solutions to fleet owners and operators in low-speed environments across the public and private sector. From route planning to fully-managed autonomous vehicle transportation services, Beep’s offerings are designed to drive differentiation, innovation, and a superior passenger experience, providing safe, clean, and efficient transportation between defined locations on private and public roads. The company’s solutions are underpinned by NAVYA’s AUTONOM shuttle, a driverless electric 15-passenger vehicle equipped with state-of-the-art sensor technology. Beep is the first distributor for NAVYA in the U.S. and is the exclusive dealer for NAVYA in Florida.

Beep will integrate Bestmile’s fleet orchestration solutions into its managed service offering that includes the management and monitoring of its AV fleet. The Bestmile platform will enable Beep to continually optimize all aspects of its autonomous fleet performance, including vehicle maintenance and service delivery to data analytics and machine learning for continuous improvement.

Bestmile’s platform has supported fleets on three continents since 2014, including the first autonomous fleets to operate on city streets as part of public transport networks. The Bestmile platform includes a complete suite of operator control systems and supports mobile applications that can be easily configured, and the platform’s APIs can be used to integrate operator tools and applications. The technology is cloud-based and can manage multiple fleets and locations, and offers multiple points of integration with operator, vehicle, driver, traveler, and external data.
