Hypermile is a UK SME technology provider building cutting-edge solutions to enable efficient driving for fleets using AI. The company was conceived in late 2019 and is backed by leading Silicon Valley incubator Y Combinator, who were the first investors in successful startups such as Stripe, Airbnb, Dropbox, Cruise. The company has a world-class team including engineers which have built industrial R&D technologies, having previously worked in autonomous vehicles (Lyft Level 5/Toyota), automotive (AVL, Continental) computer vision (Amazon, Microsoft) and semiconductor-based (Graphcore) companies. Hypermile’s co-founders have PhDs/advanced degrees from Oxford and UCL, have written a best-selling textbook on machine learning, and led ML/computer vision teams at companies such as Mudano (acquired by Accenture) and Pupil. We have won a range of grants including Innovate UK and the EU Commission’s Horizon 2020 and collaborate with industry bodies including CCAV and Zenzic. We are developing Co-Pilot, the first AI-powered energy saving advanced driver assist system (ADAS) specifically optimised for commercial vehicles (diesel & electric). This is a single, cost-effective solution to address how road logistics firms approach the problem of inconsistent driver behaviour, impacting fuel/energy consumption and emissions. Driver behaviour greatly affects vehicle energy usage; good driving can save up to 20% energy (NREL 2021) - a potential saving of €1.5B/yr for UK hauliers alone.
