embotech receives funding for its "Motion Planning Software for Autonomous Car Industry" from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 836777.
Horizon 2020 hashtagH2020SME is investing in smart and sustainable SME solutions for the future with emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges.
How does embotech fit in there? With the embedded motion planning technology, embotech helps OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, mobility providers and automotive engineering companies. The result is an increased performance of their ADAS features and an increased level of autonomy of their vehicles as well as an accelerated path to safe autonomous and affordable taxi services and to smart parking through autonomous valet parking capabilities, facilitating simultaneous parking to increase space efficiency and throughput. For automotive engineering companies embotech increases the capabilities of their proof-of-concept systems and vehicles.
So far, embotech has won the first out of three rounds: the feasibility assessment phase. Phase 2 for innovation development along with phase 3 for business acceleration are yet to come. Embotech looks forward to participating.
