Under the deal announced on Wednesday once the capability is developed and certified, the vehicles will be built in South Australia.
ACE managing director Greg McGarvie said, “This is a great opportunity for two clever, innovating Australian companies to demonstrate leadership in the development of a cleaner, more secure, cost-efficient and smart transport system.”
“Not only does the ACE vehicle bring back vehicle manufacturing and energy solutions to Australia, but as a world leader in AI and sensor technology, SenSen will provide its expertise to making our vehicles autonomous – a first for Australia!”
“Autonomous EVs are the future with so many opportunities to stem from their development.
“Imagine driving a super-efficient electric vehicle, built locally in South Australia, with onboard collision avoidance systems, and the additional capability of a follow me, parcel delivery system, which like a good cattle dog, stays at your heels and pauses with you as you deliver packages.
“Visualise your super-efficient electric vehicle recognising you, then greeting you on your approach, unlocking the doors, then asking you where you would like to go.
“This is the future.”
ACE says it is “production ready” with German and Taiwanese technology partners.
