WHAT WE DO

OUR MISSION

DARWIN CAVs will bring new opportunities for rural areas by providing ubiquitous comms in a safe and entertaining environment. We want to see how local communities thrive by using our services as a platform for even bigger and better things.

Our CAVs are equiped with 5G and satellite communication products, allowing our control centers to track the fleet wherever they are. The communication channel will allow us to asses the vehicle health at all times as well as plan CAVs schedule based on the customer needs, thus taking care of the environment, reducing pollution and noise, and at the same time providing customers with infotainment of their choice
