Technology innovation in Lake Nona: meet Beep and Navya’s autonomous vehicles
Lake Nona is already known for its quality of life, luxurious properties and incentive to innovation. The planned community of Southwest Orlando extends this mix with the arrival of Beep Inc., one of the region’s first autonomous vehicle solutions.
The company, which will be based in Lake Nona, will offer self-driving passenger vehicles in the community and beyond, according to an article in the Orlando Business Journal. Beep will work in partnership with France’s NAVYA in terms of research and development of the vehicles to be used in Florida.
“Beep provides a complete suite of managed services, including monitoring, managing and operating the routes and buses from the Beep Command Center and trained on-board stewards to greet your passengers and ensure a pleasant and safe experience,” says the company’s website, according to OBJ.
The vehicles use a combination of Lidar sensors, cameras, GPS RTK (Global Positioning System Real Time Kinematics), IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and odometry to navigate without a driver, wheel, brake or gas pedals.
With a fast rate of growth, Lake Nona currently has more than 11,000 residents, 5,000 employees and 14,000-plus students at its schools. Focused on planned communities and low-speed environments like medical and university campuses, Beep and NAVYA are the perfect complement to the existing service offerings in Lake Nona.
