Ingenico Labs brings in-vehicle payment to Autonom Cabs, the Navya robo-taxis
Ingenico Group has partnered with Navya to integrate a connected screen enabling payments for a range of services on board the Autonom Cab, the first robo-taxi on the market. Navya chose to integrate an Ingenico 15-in screen equipped with an NFC (near-field communication) reader in its self-driving cab, to offer a variety of services including ride sharing, location-based content, click and collect, and coupons. The advantage for end-users is the convenience of a fluid and smart mobility service.
Navya says it can monetize its vehicles using Ingenico’s embedded screen without a specific expertise in managing payment cards, wallets, or multi-currency transactions.
Nicolas de Crémiers, Navya CMO, commented, “We are glad to demonstrate with Ingenico Labs what will be the very close future of mobility. Autonom Cabs will allow passengers to maximize the time spent on board and create a new experience through personalized, connected, and effective services.”
Michel Léger, EVP Innovation at Ingenico Group, said, “We are delighted to play a role in enriching user experience on board the Navya Autonom Cab. Our connected screens illustrate Ingenico’s capacity to anticipate trends, identify future use cases and build innovative partnerships. Payment in IoT has been a focus of Ingenico Labs since its inception. It is part of a natural evolution of the purchasing journey, in which, since payment is everywhere, conversion can occur wherever there is an interaction between a consumer and a brand.”
