FERNRIDE releases Gen 4 autonomous vehicle kit 

FERNRIDE has announced its next-generation autonomous vehicle kit.

FERNRIDE’s Vehicle Kit is reportedly built to withstand harsh circumstances such as sub-zero temperatures, ice and blizzards, as well as the desert environment and sandstorms.

The firm employs automotive-grade hardware that is simple to build for vehicle makers and straightforward to service for fleet management.

Hendrik Kramer, CEO and co-founder of FERNRIDE, said: “Our customers need 100 per cent availability and reliability in their live operations, as they cannot afford any disruptions in their daily routines.

“Prototypes are great for demonstrating functionality, but to provide a real working solution to your customers you need an integrated, industrialised system to do this for hundreds of units and years of operations.”

The process of building this purpose-built system included meticulous component selection, thorough testing, and the creation of a system architecture, reported FERNRIDE.

This system offers safe and high-performance autonomous driving, remote support, and the greatest operational dependability, all at scale, and opens the door to serial manufacturing and global deployment of FERNRIDE-enabled autonomous cars.

The new powerful Gen 4 Vehicle Kit release is set to enable upcoming deployments and scale existing ones safely and cost-effectively.

In May, FERNRIDE appointed a new board member, Guenter Schmidmeir.
