DropCar, a top logistics technology, mobility services, and cloud software company for the car industry and consumers, recently announced that the company is teaming up through a Memorandum of Understanding with the self-driving car and parking technology company STEER Tech to combine self-driving car technology into DropCar's Mobility Cloud platform.
DropCar CEO Spencer Richardson stated, “Together our goal is to provide fleet owners, dealers, car sharing solutions, OEMs, and retailers with a single destination to manage their current mobility programs using DropCar’s last mile logistics platform and safety drivers, while simultaneously leveraging autonomous capability to optimize their operations. It is a great stepping stone to a wider array of autonomous applications as they become mainstream. STEER brings that capability to activate and add an autonomous layer to our service.”
STEER Tech has created the first fully-autonomous parking technology to transform everyday cars into driverless vehicles that can valet themselves and self-park in designated lots. The technology provides level 4 automation for a range of other last mile functionalities that may add further excitement to the partnership.
“With STEER’s fully automated parking technology, DropCar is able to provide next level luxury to their consumers, lower parking accidents and scale a larger fleet owing to the added driverless capability. DropCar’s trusted logistics platform for tier-one mobility programs and large group of consumers that subscribe directly to their mobile app for parking & personal chauffeur services will all benefit from the STEER - DropCar partnership. Our technology can be a critical part of extending the value of these programs to include the benefits of fully autonomous vehicles in a stepwise manner,” noted STEER CEO Anuja Sonalker.
