Enway, a Berlin, Germany-based autonomous vehicle software developer, raised a seven-digit funding round.
Backers included Atlantic Labs and B10.
The company will use the funds to hire new people and to continue to develop the technology.
Co-founded by Julian Nordt, Bo Chen and Thanuja Ambegoda, Enway develops a platform that enables autonomous operations of specialty vehicles. The solution powers specialty vehicles from street sweepers to waste trucks.
In details, the technology enables street sweepers to achieve centimeter precise navigation and path planning optimized for street cleaning based on a sensor fusion approach that combines inputs from LiDAR, cameras, Radar, GNSS, IMU and wheel odometry.
Refuse vehicles equipped with the software and additional sensors are able to follow a garbage man without the need for a driver. They feature a special handheld device or smartphone for manual control and smart and dynamic path planning based on garbage position and obstacles.
