Tactile Mobility has created a software module to provide this missing piece through sensing and data analytics for smart and autonomous vehicles, city governments, and fleet managers.
“How do you take a vehicle from Point A to Point B at a set speed with minimum gas consumption using only software and data coming off the vehicle sensors?” asked Amit Nisenbaum, Chief Executive Officer of Tactile Mobility. “That question started this whole company.”

They discussed the data collection and processing behind Tactile Mobility’s technology, a key investor and customer for the company, and the market role that Nisenbaum’s firm expects to play.

A software module collects data provided by non-visual sensors, applies artificial-intelligence models and generates enough insight in the cloud to produce a real-time map of road features. The car then responds accordingly.
