USA: Drive.ai focuses self-driving efforts in Arlington
Drive.ai, the Silicon Valley startup operating in the autonomous driving services will conclude testing in the north Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas, later this week. Company say will concentrate their efforts in the nearby city of Arlington.
Until now in Frisco the company has operated self-driving test shuttles on a single route that connected an office park and nearby shopping center but Drive.ai intends to push the capability of its self-driving technology and lay the groundwork for a profit-generating business. And Arlington city seems to be the right solution.
Three of the company's orange Nissan NV200s have been operating in Arlington since October. Four from Frisco will now join the fleet.
The combined fleet of seven vehicles will start running on expanded routes that connect the Dallas Cowboys' stadium, an office complex, the city's convention center, Texas Rangers ballpark and the University of Texas.
