Helixx and Conigital form Strategic Collaboration to Advance and Accelerate Cutting-edge Autonomous EVs

Conigital and Helixx will jointly develop a simplified autonomous electric vehicle technology, using Helixx’s universal manufacturing architecture and Conigital’s pioneering driverless programmes.

Oxford, UK, 17 November 2023 – Helixx, the leading EV manufacturing technology company has signed a MOU with Conigital, a driverless vehicle technology company to jointly develop a next generation bi-directional autonomous vehicle (AV), it has been announced.

The technology partnership, utilising Helixx’s unique universal vehicle platform and manufacturing architecture, will speed up and simplify the current complexities of autonomous vehicle development. Software led design engineering, combined with Helixx’s simplified architecture and low cost manufacturing strategies will allow rapid testing and global implementation. 

Conigital and Helixx are now co-developing a suite of AV software and hardware designed to streamline AV development globally. The manufacturing and technologically driven philosophies shared by Helixx and Conigital will deliver an “AV menu item/ ‘off the shelf AV” into future-proofed vehicle manufacturing systems. It will be powered by the Helixx proprietary ‘factory in a box’, with the goal of reducing the barrier to entry for electric autonomous vehicles.

By merging autonomous technology with electric vehicle innovation, the partnership strives to reduce obstacles in urban mobility. The resulting platform will serve as an ‘autonomous-agnostic’ framework, adaptable for various autonomous vehicle use cases.

Steve Pegg, Co-founder and  CEO of Helixx “This is an exciting partnership and another key milestone for Helixx. The fusion of Conigital’s driverless technology suite with Helixx’s universal electric vehicle manufacturing architecture is a key development in delivering a future where sustainable urban mobility is the norm, underpinned by a core ethos that aims to advance how cities embrace transportation that offers state-of-the-art advanced driver assistance systems all the way up to full driverless mobility solutions.”

Don Dhaliwal, CEO of Conigital “Our collaboration with Helixx is a significant step towards reshaping driverless transportation technology to make it viable for future mass adoption. By combining the full suite of Conigitial autonomous software and hardware systems with the electric vehicle platform expertise from the visionary team at Helixx, we are creating an integrated ecosystem that merges autonomous and electric vehicles together from first principles .”

The MOU represents a commitment to research and development, focusing on innovative approaches to harmonize driverless technology and electric vehicle platforms into one rapidly deployable approach that can be adopted anywhere in the world from the most advanced smart cities and closed fence autonomous systems, to the busy streets of the world’s emerging megacities. Through this joint development agreement, Conigital and Helixx aim to challenge traditional transportation boundaries, enabling a new era of mobility.
