Autonomous driving software startup Helm.ai raises $26 million

Helm.ai announced it has raised $26 million in series B funding. This new Capital will help Helm.ai better serve its rapidly growing customer base and accelerate product expansion of its highly scalable approach to autonomous driving software.

Additional funding in this round was from JM Partners, Base Capital Funding, and Freeman Group, with additional participation from Nicolas Berggruen, ACVC Partners, OneWay Ventures, Binnacle Partners, Nadia Asoyan, Vlad Tenev, Mark Leslie, Jeff Rothschild, and Neil King.

To date, Helm.ai has raised a total of $44 million in funding. The Company announced the Fundraising on their official Twitter Page a few days ago:

Sheel Tyle of Amplo, a returning investor which led the round, says:

“Helm.ai is taking a leading position in autonomous driving via their vision-first unsupervised learning approach to ADAS and L4, in addition to a wide variety of robotics and automation markets.

“We’re excited to see the many applications made possible by Helm.ai.”

Vlad Voroninski, CEO of Helm.ai, says: “This Series B funding enables Helm.ai to further our mission of developing cutting edge artificial intelligence software and applying it to self-driving cars and the automation of robotics at large.

“We are well positioned at this stage to expand our product line and continue to deliver market-leading ADAS and L4 solutions to OEMs and fleets, as well as to form additional partnerships with Tier 1s, sensor, and chip companies.”

Unlike traditional Deep Learning systems, Helm.ai’s Deep Teaching unsupervised learning technology leverages mathematical modeling to quickly and cost-effectively train on large scale datasets with little to no human intervention, leading to state of the art accuracy on a variety of automotive compute platforms.

Helm.ai will be at CES 2022 in Las Vegas to showcase its technology.
