Woven Planet buys Renovo

Woven Planet, the autonomous driving subsidiary of Toyota, has announced that it has bought automotive OS developer Renovo Motors.

Based in California, Renovo's software will help to advance Woven Planet’s development of programmable vehicles.

The acquisition will add depth to Woven Planet’s resources, particularly for Arene, Woven Planet’s open vehicle development platform. According to Woven Plent it will add another layer of engineers who have expertise in building a complete software-defined vehicle infrastructure stack; provide a platform and software that are proven to work across multiple OEM platforms, aligned with the goal of establishing a hardware-agnostic operating system and bring a robust, established technology ecosystem of industry partners.

Following on from a number of recent acquisitions* made earlier this year, the Renovo acquisiton is seen as complementing Woven Planet’s strategy to bring together world-class talent and expertise in automated driving technology, next-generation mapping, and vehicle operating systems.

*In August Woven Planet purchased Carmera, a US firm that provides real-time, high-definition maps and data for driverless vehicles.
