Occupying brand new workshop space at MIRA Technology Park, the Boston-based leader in predictive road-sensing technology will utilise the facility’s skills, test, and development infrastructure to better access and expand its EU customer base. The Midlands-based technology park is an integral part of ClearMotion’s research and development process and will be the main European test centre used by the company.
Using a combination of actuators and software, ClearMotion’s proactive ride technology responds to road conditions instantaneously, mitigating vehicle movement across any type of terrain and improving the in-car experience for passengers and drivers alike. ClearMotion offers an unrivalled level of comfort within vehicles, alongside the response times and agility of world-class sports cars. Such technology signifies an important step in the industry-wide move towards autonomous driving, enabling passengers to successfully multitask while in-car including, drink coffee, read the newspaper, or write a business proposal free from jostling and bumps. ClearMotion will continue to develop its technology at HORIBA MIRA, tapping into the technology park’s extensive range of testing facilities, including its world-renowned ride and handling circuit.
The expansion to MIRA Technology Park follows an exceptional year for ClearMotion. In 2017, the company closed a $130 million investment led by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, forged partnerships with Bridgestone and Qualcom, Inc., and later announced the acquisition of Bose Corporation’s active motive control business, strengthening ClearMotion’s product offering and bringing the company one step closer to be the leading motion control company in mobility. ClearMotion’s new facility at MIRA Technology Park provides ready access to extensive testing facilities and a world-renowned ride and handling test circuit.
