BestMile is a technology company providing distributed and highly scalable cloud technology leveraging the full potential of autonomous vehicles to tackle global mobility challenges. With offices in San Francisco (USA), Lausanne (Switzerland) and London (UK), BestMile commercializes the first fleet automation platform allowing for the intelligent operation and optimization of autonomous vehicle fleets, regardless of their brand or type and managing both fixed-route and on-demand service types. Since its creation in 2014, BestMile built a proven track record as the leading company for fleet automation in the autonomous mobility industry. BestMile was the first company to offer on-demand autonomous mobility services and is now enabling the first instance in which electric autonomous shuttles are circulating through a city center on both pedestrian areas and open roads, and servicing the public on a daily basis.

BestMile’s fleet automation platform enables autonomous vehicles to work together as a fleet and allows mobility providers to deploy, operate and scale autonomous mobility services. Using cutting-edge algorithms, the platform sends optimized missions to vehicles and seamlessly handles planning, real-time automated dispatching, intelligent routing, and electrical energy management. BestMile’s fleet automation platform supports every operating model from fixed routes with fixed schedules to on-demand door-to-door services, or combinations of them, enabling optimized and dynamic services. Built with an ecosystem vision in mind, BestMile’s flexible and modular platform allows for multiple integration scenarios guaranteeing seamless integration with existing infrastructure. Customers can either choose a turnkey solution using BestMile’s web and mobile applications, use their proprietary applications on top of BestMile’s platform or interface an existing platform with BestMile’s. Last but not least, BestMile platform is vehicle agnostic and enables the operation of mixed fleets composed of autonomous vehicles of different types and brands, but also hybrid fleets comprised of both autonomous vehicles and human-driven vehicles. The management of hybrid fleets will be the cornerstone of the autonomous mobility revolution. Human driven vehicles and autonomous vehicles will coexist and will have to be operated and optimized as a whole to ensure seamless transition towards autonomous mobility.
