Porsche has announced a minority investment in the Israeli technology company Tactile Mobility. The company is one of the leaders in the field of ‘tactile data’ and is based in Haifa.
Tactile data simulates a sense of touch. In this process, an algorithm processes data that is provided by different physical sensors. An additional potential for the use of the technology also lies in applications for the predictive servicing and optimisation of the battery management.
Michael Steiner, Member of the Executive Board for Research and Development at Porsche, says: “Tactile Mobility’s method helps us collect additional information about the condition of vehicles and roads that goes beyond the information that can be obtained with conventional sensor systems.”
Amit Nisenbaum, CEO of Tactile Mobility, adds: “This investment will cement our leadership in this growing segment. By equipping intelligent vehicles with the sense of ‘touch’ and the ability to analyse tactile data, we can contribute to further improve the driving experience and make it even safer.”
