Renovo and Seagate work together to develop next generation data management solutions for autonomous vehicles

The co-operation will allow for fleets to effectively utilize the massive amounts of data generated by their AVs

CAMPBELL, Calif., June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Renovo, the global autonomous vehicle software company, today announced their cooperation with Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage solutions. This will fuel Renovo’s autonomous vehicle data management and orchestration efforts, ahead of a product announcement in this space in the next few weeks.

“Rapidly Identifying valuable data and getting it in the hands of those that need it is a critical problem facing the AV industry,” said Ken Claffey, Vice President & General Manager of Enterprise Data Solutions at Seagate. “Renovo’s expertise in vehicle and data systems makes them uniquely qualified to solve this problem for autonomous vehicle fleets.”

In just one day, an autonomous vehicle produces as much data as the Hubble telescope produces in a whole year. Streaming this data in real-time to cloud-based storage is impractical given the bandwidth constraints, thus, local persistence on individual vehicles is key.

Renovo have been building on the success experienced with the AWare platform and are planning on announcing additional information on other projects in the coming weeks. This cooperation will see Renovo use a wide range of Seagate storage solutions across all areas of an autonomous vehicle fleet.

“Seagate offers a wide variety of solutions for autonomous vehicle data storage,” said Chris Heiser CEO of Renovo. “We are delighted to work with an industry leader like Seagate to bring the very best in storage technology to bleeding edge autonomous vehicle applications.”

The Renovo platform currently powers highly automated vehicle fleets on public and private roads today including that of Seagate joins the Renovo ecosystem along with a growing list of autonomous mobility technology providers like Samsung, Verizon, HERE, Velodyne LiDAR, Parsons, INRIX, Argus Cyber Security, Affectiva, Phantom Auto, Metamoto,, NIRA Dynamics, Bestmile, and others.
