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 centres, ensuring seamless vehicle operation in areas with limited terrestrial network coverage.


Scheduled to commence in early July 2024, this new project unites Space Florida, Guident'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.


Dr. Dennis Morgen, Guident's Vice President for Product and Project Management commented:


"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.


This grant will propel us forward in developing an effective remote monitor and control solution with Space Florida's invaluable support and strategic expertise.


This project marks a significant milestone in Guident's dedication to innovation in autonomous vehicles and monitoring solutions. With a talented team of researchers, engineers, and industry experts, we believe Guident is poised to impact the future of AV transportation."
