Automobility LA - S15

SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT

Last year, Los Angeles-based Thor Trucks was selected as the grand prize
winner among the 2018 Top Ten Startups. Since its recognition, Thor has announced a partnership with Loomis Armored, the largest integrated cash
distribution network in the country, to deliver electric armored cars as part
of a pilot program.
Previous Top Ten Startups winners have included PolySync and WayRay,
while Top Ten lists have included a variety of innovators in artificial intelligence, radar and lidar systems, mapping and location systems, data collection, safety, and alternative mobility.
"Looking back, technologies that enable more flexible or sustainable
transportation have been the most exciting to me," says Plug And Play's

Jansen. "We have seen high-density and swappable battery technologies,
the emergence of micromobility through scooters and e-bikes and the continued exploration of alternate modes of transportation like hyperloop and
eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing).
"Looking forward, I am particularly excited to see the implementation of
small freight/delivery robots on our streets. For B2C (business to customer)
applications, I see a huge opportunity for these delivery robots to take advantage of the shift to e-commerce and on-demand food delivery. For B2B
applications, autonomous-delivery robots can enable fast, clean, efficient
delivery of goods for manufacturing facilities, retailers, restaurants or any
other company that handles physical products." l
