Meet the Finalists 2020

Meet the 2020 GAMIC Finalists

Twelve startups from seven states and five countries have been selected as this year’s finals for the 12th annual GAMIC competition. Click here for a copy of the SAE/GAMIC press release.

The finalists are:

  • The semifinalists are:
    • AC Biode: First-ever stand-alone Alternating Current batteries (patents-pending) versus current-technology DC batteries.  AC batteries are more efficient and are up to 30% more compact than DC batteries.  Chiba, Japan.
    • Apostera: Mixed Reality solutions for the companies developing Augmented Reality Heads-up Displays, for Navigation Suppliers, and for OEMs.  Our solution – based on augmented reality (AR), machine learning (ML), Computer Vision (CV) and sensor fusion technologies – adds a layer of intelligence to traditional navigation systems by merging the virtual and real worlds to help drivers understand more precisely where to maneuver their vehicle.  Munich, Germany.                                   
    • Bareways: Bareways is developing middleware software for rural areas, providing not only optimized routing but also real-time information about passability and road conditions.          Lübeck, Germany.
    • Caliber Data Labs: At Caliber Data Labs, our flagship edge-first platform, SceneBox, simplifies the collection, discovery, and management of large volumes of data such as high-resolution images, lidars, and videos.  This AI workflow management enables companies in perception-heavy application spaces such as autonomous vehicles, surveillance, and industrial robotics to spend their time on product development, instead of building AI models.  Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
    • GHOST – feel it: GHOST – feel it offers a development environment to make machine-human interaction more intuitive, faster and more personal through information transfer via the sense of touch. The development environment allows the creation of advanced and multi-dimensional haptic interfaces and also links all relevant market participants via the higher-level platform.  Berlin, Germany.          
    • Intvo: Intvo is focused on the smart software solution of using AI to observe, predict, and classify pedestrian behavior, enabling autonomous vehicles to better understand humans behavior and to be safe for their surroundings.  Ann Arbor, MI.
    • Proof Energy: Proof Energy is revolutionizing the future of power generation in transportation and stationary generator markets. Our 50kW Power Module uses Direct Ethanol Solid Oxide Fuel Cell technology licensed from Lawrence Berkeley National Labs. As fuel cell range-extender, it significantly reduces the size and cost of battery pack enabling medium and heavy duty EV market. Dublin, CA.
    • RecallRabbit: 1 in 4 cars in the US – over 58 million units today – has an outstanding recall.  Dealers are by law only allowed to fix recalls on their own brands, leaving millions of used cars for sale on dealers’ lots that have unaddressed recalls on them.  We are like Match.Com for dealers, connecting them to get the open recalls on their lots fixed.  Round Rock, TX.
    • Riding With Friends: We are developing vehicle integrated child seats, a technology to enhance the mobility of people with children in a world of growing transport needs.  The technology being developed is a vehicle seat that transforms between a typical adult passenger seat and the various child seats. Houston, TX.
    • Serinus Labs: Serinus Labs has developed early-warning technology to predict battery failure and potential fire and explosion hazard in Electric Vehicle (EV) lithium-ion battery modules. Berkeley, CA. 
    • Tesseract Structural Innovations: The TSI Uniform Deceleration Unit or UDU, is a unique composite structure – consisting of a high-strength, low-density cast aluminum ‘foam’ surrounded by a novel high-strength aluminum skin structure – designed to fit into the wheel well of virtually any light-duty vehicle, and which limits the transfer of crash forces while maximizing energy-absorbing deformation.  Fayetteville, AR.
    • Volvero : Volvero is an app (a marketplace), based on blockchain technologies, where owners (private and professional) can share their vehicles with the community.  Our service reduces the number of vehicles wandering in the cities, traffic and pollution – resulting in a decrease in the demand for spaces for parking.  San Francisco, CA.
