Building the first all-electric supercar, is where it all began for Renovo. The Coupe was built in partnership with large tier-1 automotive suppliers and served as an important lesson in understanding what building automotive-grade safety systems actually meant.
Using many of the systems built for the coupe, Renovo was asked to create a fully autonomous development platform for researchers at The Center For Autonomous Research at Stanford University. There, the Renovo platform was relied on to create reliable and safe fully autonomous vehicles.
Our vast experience in developing reliable safety systems with The Coupe and Stanford has enabled us to create the first safe, secure and scaleable operating system, specifically created for the commercial deployment of fully autonomous vehicles with a reliable safety layer at its core.
