AImotive: Can Self-Driving Cars be as Safe as Airplanes?

The auto industry is heading full bore toward self-driving vehicles, with a goal of reaching “level four” — truly autonomous vehicles — by 2020. AImotive expects to be a major player providing solutions for bringing the dream of autonomous vehicles to reality. The company’s custom software allows some of the necessary vehicle testing to be done through simulations, reducing the amount of road testing needed to cover a variety of weather and road conditions. We are excited that AImotive represents Cisco Investments’ first pure AI-focused investment in Europe. Since we realize that Cisco’s next generation of applications, products and services will be enabled by AI, we look forward to building on this investment theme in the future, with a particular emphasis on unlocking the power of data, computer vision, robotics, intuitive networks.
