Perrone Robotics, a leading manufacturer of fully autonomous vehicle systems, has announced an agreement with Roush Industries, Inc to accelerate the production and installation of Perrone’s patented TONY AV retrofit kit covering an extensive range of vehicles types.

The new partnership is established to help Perrone increase sales of transit shuttles, low-speed electric vehicles, electric utility and cargo vans, and large trucks for logistics purposes. Perrone will use Roush’s experience across various disciplines to cut production lead times and streamline client delivery cycles under the terms of the agreement.

Perrone will deliver a scalable production model with full autonomy for geo-fenced applications spanning commercial, governmental, and logistical markets. Thanks to Roush’s design engineering, vehicle controls integration, fabrication, and installation capabilities.

Roush Industries, according to Paul Perrone, Founder, and CEO of Perrone Robotics, represents a key milestone in their ability to reduce customer delivery times so they may scale out for fleet-level deployments without sacrificing quality. He went on to say that they are looking forward to collaborating with the Roush team to provide a production-grade fine point to every autonomous vehicle they deploy.

This partnership is a logical fit for two forward-thinking firms developing new mobility alternatives to add value to their customers.

“As a leader in the automotive engineering and specialty manufacturing sector with extensive experience in working with suppliers in the e-mobility and autonomous vehicle market, we applaud Paul Perrone’s focus on innovation and performance-driven autonomy. We share their commitment to advance reliable mobility options for cargo, utility, truck, and shuttles,”

said Jason Furr, Vice President of Business Development for Roush Industries.

Perrone’s sales team will continue to deliver dependable, performance-driven mobility choices for the transit of people and products as it expands its sales operations in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
