Our Approach

At Pronto, we take an entirely new evolutionary approach to developing highway driving technologies. We don’t build self-driving software, we build safe driving software. Our team, many of whom pioneered the most important breakthroughs in the autonomous vehicle industry, are focused on solving real problems for real customers today.

 

We don’t use bloated hardware, legacy software, and flawed business models fit for demoware only. Our software system works with cameras and radar to offer the world’s best driving software powered by artificial intelligence. Copilot improves the safety of drivers behind the wheel rather than replacing them.

 

Taking this bold and different approach requires that we reinvent safe driving software from the ground up. That, in turn, requires us to show that we can deliver on this new vision. We believe an incremental approach delivers delivers real safety benefits to drivers today and paves the way for the future development of fully autonomous vehicles.

 

Pronto reached its first important milestone in October 2018, when it successfully completed the first-ever cross country drive without any driver input into the vehicle controls.

The trip was on highways, lasted over 3,000 miles, and took over 50 hours. The journey provided the key validation of Pronto’s core technology upon which Copilot is built.

Over the course of his career, Robbie has built and scaled multistate teams to facilitate testing, designed and managed test sites, and developed industry best practices for the safe testing of autonomous vehicles.

Ognen

Ognen Stojanovski COO and Co-Founder

Ognen has extensive experience in the self-driving space, beginning in 2004 as a competitor in the first DARPA Grand Challenge. Before Pronto, Ognen helped launch Otto and Uber Freight, both of which focused on developing technology for the trucking industry. At Pronto, Ognen works closely with carriers of all sizes, as well as policymakers, regulators, and law enforcement at the federal, state, and international levels to promote the safe, repeatable, and commercially viable deployments of technology. He previously cleared regulatory paths to allow for the first commercial delivery by an autonomous truck, as well as the first series of interstate shipments by self-driving trucks.Stojanovski has a background in law and engineering.
