Technology start-up driveblocks, a software specialist for fully autonomous driving of commercial vehicles, has closed a 2.2 million euro seed round led by Rethink Ventures and Bayern Kapital. Angel investor Joachim Drees (former CEO of MAN SE and MAN Truck & Bus SE) and existing investor Friedrich & Wagner Holding also provided fresh capital. The founding team intends to use the funds primarily for the further development of driveblocks’ core technology: the Mapless Autonomy Platform.
The Mapless Autonomy Software Platform receives several feature updates, mainly focused on enhanced the object detection capabilities and data management workflow for deep learning applications.
The Mapless Autonomy Platform is updated with various new features and improvements with a large focus on perception and sensor-fusion components. These additions can be applied within highway as well as off-road scenarios and boost the sensor-based environment model capabilities significantly.
The driveblocks mapless autonomy stack can be combined with various software components of the ROS 2 ecosystem. Learn more about this integration!
driveblocks releases the next version of its modular Mapless Autonomy Platform with algorithms for highly automated and autonomous driving of commercial vehicles at CES® in Las Vegas. New features have proven their capabilities already within real-world tests on German highways.
Learn why the minimization of end-to-end latency is important to achieve safe autonomous driving capabilities for commercial vehicles and what is done in the driveblocks mapless autonomy stack to achieve this.
driveblocks returns to the CES® 2023 in Las Vegas, from January 5th to 8th! Step by at our booth (#10175, North Hall) to see the latest release of our ready-to-drive autonomy platform!
