The industrial automation market is expected go up to $ 306.2 billion by 2027. As more autonomous vehicles begin to be deployed in more environments, the need for end-to-end security only increases. Using Arilou’s technology, Cyngn’s autonomous vehicles can identify communication anomalies and react. For example, if an AV begins to receive commands that are not in accordance with typical operational expectations, the system may report unexpected commands and initiate safety modes such as immediate vehicle stop. Additionally, Arilou will continuously monitor Cyngn’s 40+ autonomous vehicle subsystems to ensure that no malicious actors attempt to gain access to the system.
In most cases, Aprilou’s cybersecurity solutions will operate invisibly, maximizing the availability of these fleets of autonomous industrial vehicles.
Cyngn is an autonomous industrial vehicles company backed by Silicon Valley venture capital that counts among its partners some of the world’s leading mobility institutions, including Nerospec, Symboticware, Formel D, First Transit and Airbiquity. Cyngn’s flagship innovation is DriveMod, an autonomous driving solution that can be flexibly deployed across multiple vehicle types in multiple industrial environments. The company has been operating autonomous vehicles in production environments since 2017. In August, the organization deposit confidentially for an initial public offering.
