Monique Seth, Conigital chief executive said: “At Conigital we are very focused on the passenger interaction and their experience while on the journey.
“So for example on Project Synergy, Gemma, our virtual concierge service will be able to have a conversation, check-in online and do your duty-free shopping.
“A lot of our interactive systems have accessibility built into them so that members of the elderly, visually impaired, less abled feel included and are also able to use those functions.
“We work closely with the Beacon Centre for the Blind Charity – and have user groups shaping how we deliver our products.”
Each project responds to the technological and customer needs for driverless shuttle pods at high traffic destinations such as airports, hospitals, business parks and shopping centres.
As part of Project Synergy, Conigital will work closely with a range of partners including Westfield Sports Cars, Fusion, Harper Adams University; Transport for Greater Manchester, Manchester City Council and Stockport Borough Council to develop driverless connected autonomous vehicles.
The project will use the latest sensor technology to allow three low carbon electric sports vehicles to drive in close formation between Stockport Railway Station and Manchester Airport.
