Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK), (OTCQB: TEKCF), the UK intellectual property investment group focused on transforming university technologies into valuable products that can improve people’s lives, is pleased to provide a progress report on Guident Ltd. (“Guident”).
Guident is developing remote monitoring and control software to improve safety of autonomous vehicles and land-based delivery devices. Guident’s software will incorporate artificial intelligence and advanced network technologies to minimize signal latency and help improve the safety of autonomous vehicles.
Since the start of 2023, Guident has enjoyed greater commercial traction and its sales pipeline grow as a result of meetings with new strategic partners and prospective customers. A strategic workshop also took place where Guident agreed on the R&D roadmap for 2023, including a newly defined order process and product names for the Remote Monitoring and Control Center solution (RMCC) and the Regenerative Shock Absorber (RSA) and its components.
Guident will shortly deploy its RMCC service for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) and expects the first Purchase Order from the contract shortly. Management visited JTA in February 2023 which resulted in defined actions for the deployment of Guident’s proprietary teleoperation solution by May 2023.
As announced on 17 Februry 2023, Guident signed a letter of intent with Auve Tech a developer and manufacturer of autonomous transportation systems . Guident’s management team also visited Auve Tech with a view to deploying turn-key solutions consisting of Guident’s teleoperation software being included with Auve Tech’s level-4 Autonomous vehicles to potential customers in the US, Europe, and Asia.

The Company is also finalizing its contract with the Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC) to provide AV shuttle services, together with its partners. Guident’s will update the market on the successful execution of this project in due course.

Lastly, Guident has partnered with Novelsat to provide space connectivity for AVs under the Space Florida project. Space Florida was created to strengthen Florida’s position as a global leader in aerospace research, investment, exploration, and commerce by leveraging NASA’s research ecosystem. We believe that such connectivity would further enhance Guident’s competitive advantage by adding an always available, low earth orbit monitoring solution, for its remote monitoring and control centres.

According to Triton Market Research “ the last mile AV autonomous vehicle delivery market is expected to reach $41.7 billion by 2028 with a CAGR of 19%. Contactless or “touch-free” delivery is in high-demand since the COVID 19 pandemic and Guident believes this increased demand will accelerate the roll-out of land-based delivery drones for pedestrians, food and medicines to improve their availability and reduce the costs of these deliveries.
Guident commercializes new technology to enhance the safety, efficiency and utility of autonomous vehicles and ground-based drones using its proprietary IP & software apps for remote monitoring and control. To learn more please visit www.guident.co
