Boca Raton, FL, July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Guident, a leading autonomous vehicle (AV) teleoperation company headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking new project supported by the Space Florida-Israel Innovation Partnership program. This initiative leverages advanced low-latency satellite services and artificial intelligence to enhance the safety, reliability, and efficiency of self-driving vehicles.

This Space Florida-Israel Innovation grant will support the development and implementation of a leading-edge system architecture, leveraging non-geostationary satellite technology. This will dramatically improve autonomous vehicle communication by establishing a reliable and redundant connection with remote monitor and control centers, ensuring seamless vehicle operation in areas with limited terrestrial network coverage.

Scheduled to commence in early July 2024, the project unites Space Florida, Guident Corp’s expertise and resources, and its Israeli partner, NOVELSAT. Each organization brings unique strengths that will synergistically contribute to pioneering safety solutions for ground-based autonomous vehicles through satellite communications.

“At the heart of this project is our commitment to advancing teleoperation safety through rigorous research and testing. We aim to ensure the highest safety and performance standards for autonomous vehicles equipped with this pioneering communication system,” said Dr. Dennis Morgen, Guident’s Vice President for Product and Project Management. “This grant will propel us forward in developing an effective remote monitor and control solution with Space Florida’s invaluable support and strategic expertise.”
