Intrepid primarily works with automotive OEMs in developing new vehicles, providing network-based tools (similar to black boxes) to improve vehicle hardware and software.
Intrepid’s data logging and diagnostics tools collect data to help engineers identify complex issues that would otherwise go undetected, like unusual current draw or network anomalies. Vehicles are becoming ever more complex, and the industry is moving toward connected and autonomous vehicles. As a result, vehicles require more data analysis before production to ensure high performance and quality, making these tools increasingly important.
The UK office follows a significant expansion in the UK market over the past three years. The new facility, opening in January 2018, will provide space for the business to continue to develop its UK portfolio and team. The company is recruiting engineers for the UK team, aiming to double the size of the business over the next decade.
Intrepid selected MIRA Technology Park for its UK office due to its proximity to Midlands-based vehicle manufacturers, as well as Warwick University, with which it has a working relationship. The business also chose to move to the park due to its status as an Enterprise Zone, which helps remove barriers to private sector growth by cutting taxes, easing planning restrictions and providing tools businesses need to invest and expand.
