We believe that using LIDAR, and implementing our optimized transportation systems will reduce congestion, reduce pollution, improve safety and saves lives.
We believe our patented technology for self-driving cars will further improve safety.
Most of the day, our car is sitting in the driveway, or a parking spot, or a garage. We only use our cars a tiny fraction of the time. Tribal Rides is creating a way to make money off the time that our cars are not in use. Because this is an autonomous vehicle, while you're sitting at work, you can send the car into the ecosystem and generate revenue by pressing a button. Tribal Rides automation will do the work for you.
With a press of a button from our mobile app is designed to track your end-to-end travel plans - including cars, trains, planes, buses - optimizing schedules and reducing your travel times.
In the United States our cities are expanding, and the suburban daily automobile commute has proven un-scalable overcrowding infrastructure. The average American spends nearly as much annually on cars, car expenses, and fuel as they do on housing. This is proving to be unsustainable both fiscally and environmentally.
While electric vehicles reduce some of the environmental burden they don’t improve our clogged roadways or greatly reduce the cost burden of ownership. Ride sharing has become a popular alternative to taxi services and traditional car pools.
We believe the emergence of autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars) will bring another wave of transformation, making carpooling safer, easier and more convenient, therefore reducing the number of cars on the road and the level of damaging emissions.
With the ability to deploy self-driving cars, we see several new models for car ownership are emerging.
One person owns the car and, through the use of Tribal Rides, can garner revenue by deploying the vehicle when not in personal use. The owner will be able to use money earned to pay off the car or to use the money as they please. The constraints created make it so the car always services its owner first.
Any group of friends, family members, neighbors, etc. can go in together on the purchase of a vehicle. They have priorities over its use and schedules and, like the individually owned car, the car can go out and accrue revenue when it's not being used. Not only is this car now a means of connection within a community; it's a revenue source.
A community, whether it be a school, a neighborhood, a workplace or another may purchase a fleet of vehicles that are accessible to those who reside in or take part in that community. This means a car can be sent out to take a group of kids to soccer practice and then upon dropping them off, take someone else to the grocery store, only to then be returned to a central location.
A person looking to start a business may purchase a fleet of vehicles, or an existing business may do this, and use these cars primarily as a revenue-building endeavor. Much like existing car companies, they will be sent out to drive patrons to and from locations, but, unlike current ride share programs, they won't be driving without purpose waiting for the next fare, leading to more traffic and emissions; they will be traveling in the most optimized fashion.
Entities like churches, or large organizations may purchase a fleet of vehicles for their employees to use. The company operates as a central authority and is able to send out cars to manage demands. This could benefit companies who currently reimburse travel and parking costs, or it could be a more efficient way for employees to travel between multiple offices and locations within the company.
