Self-Driving Car Startup Raises Another $31 Million

While major automakers and others develop and experiment with self-driving vehicles, startups also are in the mix.

One startup just raised an additional $31 million, bringing its total capital raised to $52 million.

The company, Voyage, is expanding its fleet of self-driving cars in California and Florida.

It has cars in a 125,000 resident retirement community in northwest Orlando.

“Many residents within our communities don’t have access to transportation options that work for them,” states Oliver Cameron, co-founder and CEO Voyage in a blog post. “Our first driverless product (with no test driver) aims to ensure there’s always a viable option to move around independently within a community. We begin with a self-driving car that can travel point-to-point within our communities at speeds up to 25 miles per hour.”

Voyage began its self-driving project with a retrofitted Ford Fusion and followed with the introduction of a G2 Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivan. The next vehicle planned is a G3 self-driving car.

Only time will tell where this and other autonomous driving project go.

Meanwhile, the money continues to flow there

    Teacher, teacher............I have the answer!!! Call On Me!!
    NOBODY CARES Except the tech nerds.   gated 55 communities already have
    shuttles, why do they think that an unmanned vehicle that cannot leave the  community and only go 25MPH, have an interest???   A few weeks ago, the Nerd Squard figured out they could have a driverless vehicle that could be remote controlled from some other location.
    Soooooooooo, why not just have a LIVE Driver.
