Autonomous Last Mile Delivery becomes a reality

Faction, an innovator in self-driving micro-logistics and vehicle-on-demand transportation, is partnering with Point One Navigation, a leader in precise positioning technology, to bring right-sized driverless delivery and transportation solutions to the mass market.

Faction’s DriveLink™ platform deeply integrates Point One’s safe positioning technology with reliable centimetre-level absolute accuracy, enabling trustworthy and efficient autonomous operations across the entire fleet. Faction is accelerating the commercial deployment of its B2B autonomous delivery service by leveraging three-wheel production electric vehicles which are purpose-built for driverless fleet services and supported by teleoperation.

Faction is developing right sized delivery vehicles – of various sizes and shapes – to solve the challenge of urban delivery and personal transportation.

Faction’s innovative driverless technology platform addresses the rapidly growing demand for reliable, cost-effective and scalable last-mile enterprise delivery services and shared mobility.  By combining autonomy with remote human supervision, Faction’s vehicle fleets are available now for business delivery use and are not waiting for the development of 100% autonomous technology.

Point One’s precise location API is a trusted full stack solution built on proprietary self-calibrating sensor fusion algorithms. Highly accurate and trustworthy positioning is a fundamental requirement for safe and effective operation across all areas of autonomous mobility and transportation. Point One’s intuitive APIs and open-source protocols integrate data from existing sensors on the vehicle, reducing production cost and simplifying vehicle design.

Point One Navigation’s precise location service is available throughout the US and covers all major urban centers.

Driverless applications are further enabled by Point One’s corrections network, which provides dense coverage across the entire continental US. The result is a system that can be quickly developed to navigate and operate safely with a high level of confidence, while also being flexible and scalable for volume production

According to Faction CEO, Ain McKendrick: “Having evaluated a number of competing technologies, Point One’s technology is a standout both in terms of performance and cost for scalable driverless fleet needs.”

“We are proud to be working with a partner such as Faction who is pioneering the commercialization of driverless micro-logistics and mobility. The team at Faction is solving a real challenge, combining technical innovation with practical solutions for the quickly evolving moving world,” said Aaron Nathan, CEO and Co-founder, Point One Navigation.
