ISRAEL - Porsche Invests in Israeli Auto Tech

Arno Froese

Israeli automotive technology startup Tactile Mobility said on Tuesday it secured $9 million in funding from Porsche, Union Tech Ventures and previous investors.

Tactile Mobility develops software that uses a vehicle’s non-visual sensors, including wheel speed, wheel angle, RPM and gear position to help smart and autonomous vehicles “feel” vehicle-road dynamics and road conditions below their tires.

In addition, the company said it crowdsources data regarding vehicle-road dynamics from vehicles equipped with its software to create a representation of each vehicle’s characteristics that can help maximize vehicle longevity, and a road conditions and hazards map layer.

The company is collaborating with several manufacturers including Ford and Porsche as well as with municipalities and road authorities in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Arno's commentary

It is no longer newsworthy or surprising that this small country on the Mediterranean called Israel has become the pinnacle of artificial intelligence; in this case, not only for Israel’s security, but for vehicles around the world. Here we must quote Ecclesiastes 2:26a: “For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy.” Colossians 2:2b-3 reads: “and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
