New cohort for Intelligent Mobility accelerator team

Innovative start-ups using AI to improve electric vehicle charging and satellite positioning for autonomous vehicles are amongst a new cohort of businesses joining the Intelligent Mobility (IM) Accelerator

The IM Accelerator is a partnership between Connected Places Catapult and Wayra UK, the largest global corporate accelerator run by entrepreneurs, that is part of Telefónica’s Open Innovation Hub.

Its objective is to develop companies which will create solutions for the most pressing transport problems facing the world today, improving transport for millions of passengers, while creating new UK-based industry leaders in a £1.4bn global transport systems market.

The new cohort includes:  – An AI-powered software platform that connects EVs, chargers, and power grids to intelligently manage EV charging. It delivers the cheapest, greenest energy possible, at home and on the go.

Helix Technologies – Designs and manufactures advance innovative satellite positioning antennas that are essential for tomorrow’s driverless and autonomous world.

Motor Ai – Level 4 autonomous driving system software based on cognitive neuroscience and ground-breaking research.

Phantasma Labs – Helps self-driving cars to understand humans better by focusing on the “edge cases” or scenarios that are difficult to predict.

To date, the IM Accelerator has generated over 30 commercial pilots for the 28 start-ups that have previously participated in the programme. Combined, these start-ups have raised over $250M in external investment.
