London and San Francisco – BP and RocketSpace, founders of the Mobility Tech Innovation Collaborative, are shaping the future movement of people, goods, and services in collaboration with global mobility and smart transportation industry leaders.
Today, they are announcing the four start-ups from Israel, U.K. and U.S. selected to test and explore partnerships with Avis Budget Group, IBM and Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi during the Mobility Tech Innovation Collaborative’s 12-week program.
Technological advances in electrification, autonomous driving and connected cars are among the many emerging drivers transforming travel for consumers and businesses.
The program’s incoming cohort of start-ups represent a technologically diverse group of advanced mobility technologies from advanced parking solutions to artificial intelligence-driven fleet management, electric vehicle fleet planning and simulated reality. There will be multiple real-world proof-of-concept (PoC) opportunities to test these products with corporates that could lead to expanded pilots, future partnerships or investments. BP recently invested $5 million in FreeWire, manufacturer of mobile rapid charging systems for electric vehicles, following its participation in the Mobility Tech Innovation Collaborative.
