Autonomous driving firm recognised in ‘Most Innovative Company’ list

Mobility technology company Aptiv has been recognised as a 2018 Top 10 ‘Most Innovative Company’ by business and technology magazine Fast Company, for its leadership in autonomous driving technology. The company was recognised in two categories – transportation and artificial intelligence.

Aptiv is working on a number of smart city pilot projects using a fleet of self-driving vehicles, with the aim of providing ‘autonomous mobility-on-demand’ in Singapore, Boston and Las Vegas by the end of 2018.

“We are honored to be recognized for the innovative work Aptiv is doing to solve mobility’s toughest challenges,” said Kevin Clark, Aptiv president and CEO.

“Aptiv engineers are dedicated to developing, implementing, and commercializing future mobility solutions to make transportation safer, greener and more connected.”

nuTonomy, the self-driving car software systems developer acquired by Aptiv in November, was also recognised by the magazine for its autonomous driving efforts.

“nuTonomy is incredibly proud to have our achievements in AI recognized by Fast Company, and to be part of the broader Aptiv family that is working toward a future that includes autonomous mobility-on-demand systems deployed in cities worldwide,” said nuTonomy President Karl Iagnemma.
