Beep’s First Responder Training Integral to AV Deployment

Widespread deployment of autonomous transportation will take an ecosystem of education, with one of the most important factors addressing how public safety officials and emergency responders deal with incidents involving autonomous vehicles.

Beep, a Florida-based autonomous mobility company, recently conducted training with Florida first responders, fire fighters, and law enforcement officials on scenarios involving AVs, including identifying and disabling onboard batteries, accessing passengers in the vehicle, and vehicle immobilization.

The day-long training session, cohosted by homebuilder Mattamy Homes, convened in a master-planned community in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. Both Mattamy and Beep are launching two autonomous shuttle routes in December to serve the development and surrounding communities.
