There’s no need for concern. This is Havn, a premium app-based chauffeur-driven car service with a high-tech, artificial intelligence-driven platform underneath. This not only ensures the car will absolutely have enough power to make the journey, but also a driver who you have highly rated in the past will be driving. And in the future, even your choice of music will be playing and the air-conditioning will be set at your preferred level when you step inside the car.
Digital Trends can exclusively reveal Havn is powered by fleet management startup Fleetonomy’s platform, which uses A.I. and machine learning to ensure all of the above conditions are met, and a whole lot more behind the scenes. We discussed with Fleetonomy Co-Founder and CTO Lior Gerenstein how A.I. will enhance and manage the service.
“Fleetonomy’s platform uses machine learning and A.I. to predict demand for Havn’s service. This is done by combining a variety of data sources, such as traffic, weather, events in the city, flight delays and historical data from the service itself,” he explained over email.
This allows the platform to put its cars in the right place at the right time, reducing the amount of time it takes for the car to reach you after hailing it in the app. In turn, it lets Havn itself better exploit its fleet of vehicles. However, Havn exclusively runs electric Jaguar I-Pace vehicles — Havn is the product of InMotion Ventures, Jaguar Land Rover’s transport-focused venture capital fund — and managing an all-electric fleet is very different than managing gasoline-powered vehicles.
