STEER is set out to create a seamless end-to-end driver experience focusing on an automated parking solution, which will first benefit Maryland area-residents and businesses.
STEER has built fully-autonomous parking technology to transform everyday cars into driverless vehicles. The first application of STEER’s technology is a Level 4, highly autonomous and cyber-secure parking solution – drivers simply exit the car at a destination, and the car parks itself in a designated parking lot. When consumers are ready to go, just summon the car via a mobile app.
It has entered into a partnership with Howard Hughes Corporation to transform Merriweather District into the first city in the country to be built for, and operate, fully-autonomous parking technology. It will be the first high-density, mixed-use neighborhood to adopt STEER and power a truly tech-forward experience for residents, businesses, and consumers.
The Merriweather District project will include 2,300 residences, a 250-room hotel, over 1.5 million square feet of office space, and 314,000 square feet of street retail with a central park. Occupancy is scheduled for the second half of 2019.
STEER builds products enable autonomous features in mainstream vehicles, galvanize smart transportation and stop automotive cyber threats now and in the future. STEER is headquartered in Columbia, Maryland.
