Beep CEO: AV safety, consolidation and post-pandemic ops

In March, Beep partnered with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) and AV solutions company NAVYA to autonomously transport COVID-19 tests from a drive-thru testing site to a processing laboratory on the Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus. The program allowed Beep to repurpose its technology and fleets amid temporary suspensions of its traditional services, while allowing healthcare workers to “stay where they need to be, and that’s on the front line,” Asa said.
