Enabling safe perception for autonomous cars

The platform to develop and validate safe perception for autonomous cars and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)

Ensuring the necessary safety standard for autonomous vehicles is critical before they are allowed on public roads. Despite huge investments into autonomous mobility so far, most of the value can be unlocked only once accepted safety standards are met.

Kognic (formerly known as Annotell) provides a software platform to speed up the development and validation of safe perception systems for both autonomous driving (AD) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Their team combines software with deep expertise to quantify perception system performance and dataset quality to meet safety requirements, allowing developers to reduce their cost and shorten production time without compromising on safety.

Founded as recently as 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden’s largest automotive cluster, Kognic has a global client base with several prominent automotive OEMs and suppliers already as its customers.

“We’re excited to partner with NordicNinja to make safe perception possible for autonomous mobility. It was clear from our early meetings that the team at NordicNinja really understands our vision and what we want to build, something which is really important when picking partners. Together we will accelerate our already strong momentum and scale our solution to all leading automotive players across the globe.”

Why we invested

Cars are becoming increasingly automated from using ADAS features to including full self-driving systems. We believe Kognic’s solution can become a standard “vision test” for developing and validating perception systems, leading to safe deployment of autonomous vehicles.
