If our primary goal for our vehicle is safety, the first thing we have to do is define what that means. Our goal is to make “Human-Friendly” a standard as stringent as UL labeling to identify a Drobotic vehicle as opposed to a drone.
It’s OK dad, it’s a Drobot. First, Drobots are controlled by TrackPaths, not flown by humans.
TrackPaths contain a “hard fence” concept where the vehicle is guaranteed not to cross the hard fence without positive control. Second, the control electronics in the safety systems are all hardware, not software, and the probability of failure of those electronics have to be calculated at less than 0.0000000001 in 1000 hours of operation.
Third, no SPF or Single Point of Failure. Everything has a backup.
Fourth Terminal Flight Avoidance / Positive Control means that even if the bird is coming down, it is still capable of looking for clear landing space or deploying some mechanism to mitigate terminal velocity and force of impact. Finally, privacy.
People all over the country (and world) are reporting being “spied on” by drones in their own back yards. Drobotic vehicles have image sensors but are not allowed to store or transmit any images of what they see.

AUTONOMY is creating a blockchain based cloud network allowing self-driving cars to communicate with each-other, with the apps on any smartphone and with the smart city infrastructure. The Autonomy blockchain connects autonomous vehicles to a common platform irrespective of brand, passenger, or owner of the vehicle and enables an extremely secure and transparent exchange of information between all vehicles, users and third parties.
Our mission is to “Create an open, secure and decentralised blockchain network for autonomous vehicles where cars communicate and learn from each-other, where no car can be hacked and where privacy, safety and security of the passengers is always the priority.” We have purchased and assembled two semi-autonomous vehicles. We also developed the decision making software for them and connected them to a private blockchain permissioned network.
The cars can be requested from a mobile app and they drive to the pickup point, wait for pickup and then to the drop off destination (in a private car park or other contained environments). Our focus is on building the communications layer for the self-driving vehicles of the future and making sure these communications are perfectly encrypted and no car can be hijacked by hackers.
Secure data exchange with these vehicles is our top concern and mission. We have committed important resources by going to the basics on how a self-driving car is built, how its software is written and how it works and understanding how to connect it to a secure network powered by a distributed ledger technology (blockchain).
We have done a few demos and countless proofs of concepts and are now ready to present our progress with car manufacturers around the world, seeking partnerships and development for various test cases. We are an experienced team which has been working in the transportation software space for over 7 years and have built multiple mobility and dispatching solutions.
