Current self-driving systems neglect the largest market: existing cars
Driving wastes your valuable time. Tasks such as washing dishes and doing laundry are mundane, repetitive, and have been automated thanks to advances in technology. Driving is next.
Right now self-driving availability is restricted to specific brands of new and expensive cars. Leading self-driving companies have defined autonomous capabilities under their terms, with billions of dollars poured into development that only benefits a few. We aim to democratize access to self-driving technology, bringing advanced driver assistance to the masses.
SideCar — a self-driving retrofit for existing vehicles
SideCar is a device attached to the inside of the windshield, right behind the rearview mirror. Our technology uses the existing LKAS (lane-keeping assist) and ACC (adaptive cruise control) systems in the car to tap into gas, steering, and brakes. It takes about 15 minutes to install.
With an affordable price point of $999 and an untapped market of consumers, we believe SideCar will be the device that changes the game.
Collaborations with major players and products that work!
The immediate market for Epilog technology is driver assistance and retrofitting ~50 million cars on the road today (source).
We have created a production-ready model in partnership with one of the world’s largest contract manufacturers Jabil Optics and in collaboration with several large OEM automotive manufacturers. With nine patents granted and one pending, we are looking to bring our proprietary, affordable tech to even more industries.
* Nvidia, Jabil, and Sony are key Epilog suppliers and preferred partners but do not directly endorse Epilog’s current offering
Production-ready product, great price, and billions of market space
Our strategy targets multiple revenue streams:
- Hardware Sales: SideCar is an accessible entry point into the world of self-driving features, offering immediate value to consumers.
- Partnerships with Manufacturers: To extend our reach, we plan to collaborate with car manufacturers to integrate SideCar technology directly into new vehicles.
- SideCar Insurance: Epilog intends to offer specialized car insurance for vehicles equipped with SideCar. It's a value-added service that encourages the adoption of our technology while offering consumers financial benefits.
