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.
Our CTO, Alexander Wischnewski, joined the speaker line-up at the EclipseCon 2022 to share insights on our view on the utilization of open-source software projects in autonomous driving.
The driveblocks autonomy SDK provides solutions to overcome the challenges posed by high-definition maps. Learn more about the flexible multi-sensor approach to road model detection and why it generalizes well to different situations.
We will launch the first release of our ready-to-drive autonomy platform to enable the software-defined future of the commercial vehicle industry.

Autonomous driving is one of the most complex technological challenges of the current decade and likely to be a game changer to the mobility industry. Despite impressive technological progress in recent years, it will still take significant innovations until fully autonomous vehicles reach public roads on a large scale.
The two mobility companies pepper and driveblocks are working together on the future of the commercial vehicle industry
