DARMSTADT, Germany, June 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — COMPREDICT, a pioneer in AI-powered solutions for software-defined vehicles, today announced a $15M Series B funding round led by Woven Capital, Toyota’s growth fund, with continued support from existing investor Shift4Good. This infusion of capital will enable COMPREDICT to expand its global footprint, diversify its product offerings, and enhance large-scale deployment capabilities.

"We are thrilled to welcome Woven Capital as an investor. This is an exciting time for us as we approach large-scale series implementation with major partners and customers worldwide," said Dr. Stéphane Foulard, co-founder and CEO of COMPREDICT. "Our team is well positioned to rapidly expand and provide automakers with valuable data-driven insights. We remain committed to advancing cutting-edge AI technologies in the automotive industry and help automakers realize their vision for vehicle-centric apps and digital services that deliver value to consumers."

Traditional vehicle health and usage monitoring requires companies to add extra hardware and build extensive data pools across fleets and digital twin cloud infrastructures. COMPREDICT’s innovative approach is purely software-based and uses readily available vehicle signals to create meaningful insights directly in-vehicle. The company’s highly efficient AI process turns existing vehicle data into virtual sensor insights for a wide range of applications, including predictive maintenance, driver coaching and car health certificates, all while informing improved car design to better meet real-world conditions and usage. These insights provide significant value to automakers, consumers and partners alike.

As the automotive industry transitions to software-defined vehicle architectures, the computing power and software content of vehicles are set to grow rapidly. This shift will underpin advanced features like predictive maintenance, smart mobility, enhanced driving and comfort systems, and consumer-centric apps. McKinsey forecasts that the automotive software market will reach $80 billion in 2030.

"By using existing onboard vehicle signals and data to generate AI-based vehicle insights, COMPREDICT has demonstrated the vast potential of virtual sensors, a critical layer in the software-defined vehicle stack, reducing costs and unlocking revenue-generating digital services," said Betty Bryant, Woven Capital principal who is joining the COMPREDICT board. "We are thrilled to back the COMPREDICT team, a company that is uniquely combining data science and vehicle engineering expertise to bring new innovative capabilities, such as predictive maintenance for next-gen vehicles."

"COMPREDICT is a key enabler of the automotive industry’s digital transformation, boosting predictive maintenance capabilities," added Matthieu de Chanville, partner at Shift4Good. "Since our initial investment in 2022, the team’s progress has been remarkable. We look forward to continuing our support for their growth."
