The New Zealand-based global ITS company HMI Technologies has launched Ohmio, a subsidiary promising “safe, stress-free and sustainable mobility for everyone”
The company says Ohmio is an autonomous pod mobility solution to efficiently transport people, freight and other assets in a safe and controlled way. It adds that Ohmio connects with other vehicles, infrastructure and traffic management systems, and that that connectivity helps them achieve greater efficiency and safety while giving clients, regulators and traffic managers greater control. The vehicles operate on a mapped route and can be easily redeployed.
“Integrating cutting-edge transformative technologies to find efficiencies, improve safety and convenience, Ohmio is driven to improve the way we move,” the company says.
“Ohmio Automotion’s focus is on the continued development, marketing, sales and managed services of the ohmio self-driving shuttle series and its integrated connected vehicle technologies,” explains Director Europe, Richard Harris. “The first beta vehicle an ohmio HOP was completed in late 2017 and successfully demonstrated the technology required for our range of self-driving, ride share and cargo vehicles.
“Ohmio vehicles are set to capture a significant share of the driverless shuttle market. The first customer order for an ohmio LIFT was placed by Christchurch International Airport in January 2018,” he adds.
