The contract starts immediately for a period of nine months.

The tpgroup Digital Solutions team, based in Hampshire UK, will work in partnership with Mountain Horse to develop and demonstrate a system for a convoy of autonomous vehicles using the autonomous navigation element of tpgroup’s existing suite of Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning and decision support software tools.

Following the successful demonstration of the concept, there is the potential to move to a production model that could go into live operation by the end of 2021.

Said Phil Cartmell, tpgroup’s Chief Executive Officer: “We are very excited to begin work on another application of our AI tools - this time for land vehicles.

“It is the first commercial business for these systems in the United States and we look forward to working with Mountain Horse Solutions to build upon this contract and generate further business in this key market.”
