National Autonomous Vehicle Day 2022

The inaugural National Autonomous Vehicle Day, #AVDay ’22, was held on May 31, 2022, by Guident in collaboration with Perrone Robotics. The event was held at the Boca Raton Innovation Center (BRIC), a 1.7 million square foot office park and the premier technology and life sciences hub in the Southeast. The BRIC was IBM's research and development campus and became the birthplace of the personal computer in the 1970s; today, it houses Guident's HQ and a growing roster of forward thinkers in technology, visionaries and global enterprises.


Guident Autonomous Intelligence

Guident is traversing the path to make autonomous vehicles safer! 

Guident delivers competitive advantages for Autonomous and Electric Vehicle (AV/EV) fleet operators and manufacturers via a Remote Monitor and Control Center (RMCC) platform utilizing AI and secure, ultra-low-latency network connectivity. 

This safety-first concept is deployed to allow autonomous vehicle fleet operators and AV platform manufacturers to meet state-mandated safety regulatory requirements. Guident's remote human monitoring and AV control provide the extra safety layer necessary to remove the safety driver from the autonomous vehicle and provide remote passenger assistance services.
