Connected and automated mobility (CAM) company Zenzic has launched its CAM Scale-Up program for the third year running.
The program offers selected startups and SMEs the chance to verify their CAM solutions in real-time and controlled environments at CAM Testbed UK locations. As a result, the companies are able to deliver better products and get to market faster.
Participating companies will have access to a share of £ 500,000 of UK government funding, access to CAM Testbed UK facilities, technical and business support from corporate partners, investment from Zenzic’s plug and play delivery partner and its global investment accelerator platform, and Zenzic’s Insights from the UK Connected and Automated Mobility Roadmap to 2030.
“We’re excited to launch this year’s Zenzic CAM Scale-Up Program,” says Mark Cracknell, Zenzic’s CAM Program Director.
“The successful start-ups and SMEs of the program, whose new and novel solutions address the real-world challenges of ecosystems, and the continued collaboration with the world-leading CAM Testbed UK, demonstrates the UK’s reputation as a global leader in CAM . As the UK government rolls out for commercial deployment CAM, this year’s program will support more start-ups and SMEs offering the opportunity to accelerate their products to market ”.
Last year, the scheme supported six successful CAM technologies.
Albora Technologies, for example, provides high-accuracy geolocation technology through challenging environments for navigating solutions. Meanwhile, Exeros Technologies looks at improving GPS tracking through insurance savings and reduced accident rates.
Grayscale AI uses neuromorphic software to provide human-like precision to navigate roads. R4DAR Technologies is an innovative platform for creating innovative radar solutions for autonomous cars while providing a built-in edge processing solution for in-depth insights into urban mobility and Xtract.
“The program will continue to offer those startups and SMEs experience 9 to 12 months of product development acceleration and credibility for future investment and international exposure. As a result of being involved in the program, a number of SMEs have gone to secure significant investment and accepted into other investment and mobility programs, ”says Kieran Borrett, Head of Plug and Play.
