Revolutionizing Mobility: Applied EV Unveils Electric Self-Driving Fleet banner

In a groundbreaking development in the world of autonomous technology, Melbourne-based company Applied EV has unveiled its electric self-driving fleet of Suzuki Jimny SUVs. These compact off-roaders, equipped with cutting-edge autonomous technology, hold immense potential for applications in remote, hazardous, and difficult-to-access areas, ranging from mining operations to search and rescue missions.

The Generation 6 Blanc Robot, based on the Suzuki Jimny platform, is the result of a strategic partnership between Suzuki and Applied EV. This collaboration, initiated in September 2021 and solidified through subsequent investments and agreements, aims to bring autonomous battery electric vehicles (BEVs) into production and explore new business models for their adoption.

Julian Broadbent, co-founder and CEO of Applied EV, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, highlighting Suzuki's extensive experience in vehicle manufacturing and Applied EV's innovative technology. "Suzuki's expertise combined with our cutting-edge technology opens up exciting possibilities for the future of mobility," Broadbent remarked.

The unveiling of the Generation 6 Blanc Robot marks a significant milestone in Applied EV's journey. These engineering test vehicles, indistinguishable from regular Jimny SUVs, serve as the foundation for validating the company's autonomous technology. Despite their outward resemblance, these vehicles boast Australian-designed and manufactured technology capable of autonomous operation.

Applied EV's Digital Backbone central control system lies at the heart of the Generation 6 Blanc Robot, seamlessly integrating software and hardware to control all aspects of the vehicle's autonomy. While previous Blanc Robot models lacked passenger compartments and were designed for specialized applications, the Generation 6 Blanc Robot is poised for mass-market deployment, offering versatility and reliability in various scenarios.

As Applied EV prepares to usher in a new era of autonomous mobility, inquiries about launch plans and potential applications for the Generation 6 Blanc Robot are mounting. GoAuto's request for further information underscores the industry's keen interest in this groundbreaking technology.

Stay tuned as Applied EV continues to unveil its vision for the future of mobility, revolutionizing transportation and paving the way for safer, more efficient, and more accessible journeys. With esteemed partners like Tynan Motors, Applied EV is poised to redefine the automotive landscape and shape the future of autonomous driving.
