Tactile Mobility Secures Strategic Investment from Nexteer Automotive and The Group Ventures to Support Growing Demand for Tactile Virtual Sensing and Data

The funds will enable Tactile Mobility to address the growing market demand for tactile sensing and data

Tactile Mobility, the leading tactile virtual sensing and data company, announced that it secured funding from Nexteer Automotive, a global leader in intuitive motion control, and The Group Ventures, an early stage North American venture firm. The investment acts as an extension to the previous $9 million round led by Porsche, and as a bridge to the next round of funding and brings total funding in the company to over $20M. Tactile Mobility plans to utilize the funds to support the rapidly growing demand for its sensing technology and data offerings, expand its go-to-market operations, and strengthen its traction among vehicle manufacturers, insurers, tire manufacturers and more across the US, Europe, and Asia.

The company’s software collects first-order data using vehicles’ built in, non-visual sensors including wheel speed, wheel angle, RPM, paddles position, gear position, and then analyzes it to yield actionable insights in real-time. These insights provide a clear-cut, highly-accurate description and analysis of the continually evolving state of vehicles, roads, and vehicle-road dynamics. The data insights are valuable across many sectors due to their availability, accuracy, and quality – from road planning and management, tracking tire conditions and ware, and even for insurance purposes.
