Transforming urban transportation challenges with simulation
About May Mobility
May Mobility (May) is unlocking a better life through self-driving transportation. May delivers solutions that work in today’s communities to accelerate the path toward a future where people can drive less and live more. The company’s goal is to realize a world where self-driving systems increase the reliability of transportation, make the roads much safer, and encourage better land use in order to foster more green, vibrant, and livable spaces.
"By focusing on our real-world deployments, we’re able to learn what make our riders happy while also building our operational capabilities. The Applied’s team has equipped us with tools to enable this development approach that is economically viable at the same time.”
Co-Founder and CEO, May Mobility
The safety and comfort of riders are the utmost priorities for May’s vehicles in operation. To achieve their vision for autonomous system development, May is focusing on the following areas of development:
"Applied Intuition provides simulation tools that are critical for our testing and development process.
The Applied team has been a good partner in adding features we ask for, which in turn set off the Simulation Flywheel internally.
In the future, we are planning to use simulation to better classify disengagements to validate if it was necessary for Fleet Attendants to disengage or not."

"We leverage Applied's simulation tools to accelerate the pace of engineering, to catch regressions early in the dev/test/deploy cycle, and to analyze the real-world performance of the system.
We save time otherwise spent manually root causing and debugging software in the field, while also gaining detailed insights into system performance."
