#TEK Tekcapital Plc – Portfolio Company Update – Guident

Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK, the UK intellectual property investment group focused on transforming university technologies into valuable products that can improve people’s lives, is pleased to provide a comprehensive snapshot of Guident Ltd’s (“Guident”) significant achievements over the past year.  


Elevating Core Solution Portfolio

Remote Monitor and Control Centre (RMCC) Enhancements


Guident is upgrading its Remote Monitor and Control Centre with an enhanced user interface, resilient fault tolerance upgrades and an innovative steering wheel integration with practical features. Guident’s consistent advancement aligns with monthly milestones, positioning it well for a customer acceptance test scheduled for early fall 2023 with its first major customer Jacksonville Transportation Authority (“JTA”), followed by its inaugural commercial deployment at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC). This marks the transition from the proof-of-concept phase to commercial deployment.


Guident’s HQ will move to BRiC and deploy the RMCC with the best-in-class video wall displays and a visualization system for the RMCC dashboards. The image below shows the RMCC rendering with three Remote-Control Operator (RCO) stations.

AI Patent for Real-time Monitor and Control

In June 2023, Guident achieved a milestone by receiving notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office related to its patent for AI methods and systems that facilitate near real-time, intelligent remote monitor and control of autonomous vehicles, robots, and drones. This achievement amplifies Guident’s patent portfolio, which now boasts 9 patents, reinforcing its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of autonomous operations.


The Regenerative Shock Absorber

In a significant leap, Guident secured a paid proof of concept agreement with a tier-1 tire manufacturer. This collaboration resulted in successful tests and detailed reports for the regenerative shock absorber. This technology aims to manufacture electromagnetic regenerative shock absorbers with high energy densities that can recover a vehicle’s vibration energy, otherwise lost due to road irregularities, vehicle accelerations, and braking.


Expansive Customer Engagements

Guident remains committed to its collaborative efforts with the Boca Raton Innovation Campus, progressing with constructing Guident’s headquarters at BRiC and advancing with the autonomous shuttle service on campus. This venture solidifies Guident’s presence as a key player in the autonomous vehicle ecosystem in the U.S.


Guident’s partnership with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), the largest transportation authority in the U.S., is thriving, evidenced by a  monthly recurring purchase of its teleoperation software solution. Guident is executing a successful integration for JTA with one of their AVs at the Armsdale Test and Learn Center.


The sales pipeline has experienced remarkable growth over the past year, adapting a direct and indirect sales approach, opening a wealth of exciting opportunities for Guident in the immediate future.


Space Florida Grant Award

Guident and Novelsat, a global leader in content connectivity, partnered earlier this year to develop an innovative always-on, ubiquitous remote monitor and control solution for autonomous vehicles and devices. Guident has been awarded funding for this project under the Florida-Israel Innovation Partnership program by Space Florida. The grant is awarded to develop a safer RMCC for monitoring, management, and backup control of terrestrial autonomous vehicles with satellite communications.


Strategic Collaborations Drive Growth

In the past year, a critical strategic emphasis was fostering partnerships with autonomous vehicle (AV) manufacturers and impactful ecosystem allies. The focus on this topic has significantly increased Guident’s patent portfolio, evolving it from a local to a global presence. Leveraging diverse AV fleets for promising projects has increased new sales opportunities and demonstrated remarkable sales potential.


One outstanding partnership was with Auve Tech, a prominent autonomous vehicle system provider from Estonia, catering to a client base across Europe and Japan. On March 15, 2023, Guident signed a strategic partnership agreement with Auve Tech with the shared objective of revolutionizing autonomous vehicle solutions. This collaboration  is focussed around Auve’s MiCa autonomous shuttles, which Auve believe are poised to redefine local mobility solutions.


Leadership Engagements and Industry Presence

Showcasing Guident’s Vision


Guident’s dedicated team participated in six high-profile industry networking events and podcasts, including Move America Austin, CES Las Vegas, Mobile World Congress Barcelona, CoMotion Miami, Autonomous Vehicle Day Jacksonville, and the American Council of the Blind Sunday Edition podcast.


Guident’s CEO engaged in meaningful discussions on AV safety, accessibility, and societal impact during the American Council of the Blind Sunday Edition Podcast-Guident’s nurturing relationships with disability community organizations to create impactful AV mobility solutions.


Guident’s exhibition at the CoMotion industry event in Miami, and the Autonomous Vehicle Day in Jacksonville, underscored technology demonstration and industry engagement.

National U.S. Autonomous Vehicle Day

Guident’s National Autonomous Vehicle Day events have gained remarkable traction. In 2022, Guident demonstrated leadership by hosting the National U.S. Autonomous Vehicle Day (#AVDay) on May 31st. The event, held at BRiC in Boca Raton, Florida, not only celebrated technological advancements but also paved the way for implementing autonomous vehicle technology. This year marked the second installment of the event. The 2023 AV Day was even more impressive, combining in-person attendance with live streaming. Collaborating with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority as co-hosts, the event was at the Armsdale Test and Learn Center in Jacksonville, Florida. The AV Day 2023 event brought together 259 industry attendees. Central to the event’s success was the dedicated AV Day LinkedIn profile, engaging audiences and channelling traffic to the official website, AutonomousVehicleDay.com. The event received support from 11 sponsors and featured ten technology demonstrators and nine speakers.


The Market

According to Triton Market Research the last mile AV autonomous vehicle delivery market is expected to reach US$41.7 billion by 2028 with a CAGR of 19%. Contactless or “touch-free” delivery is in high demand since the COVID-19 pandemic, and Guident believes this increased demand will accelerate the roll-out of land-based delivery drones for pedestrians, food and medicines to improve their availability and reduce the costs of these deliveries.

Guident commercializes patented technology to enable safer autonomous vehicles and devices by providing industry-leading AV remote monitoring, control, assistance, and passenger support services. To learn more, please visit www.guident.com.

Ian Pollard: ABF – A Headline A Day

Associated British Foods ABF Yesterdays headline trumpeted that Primark blamed three periods of unseasonable weather for sales sliding by 2.1% over the year to the 15th September. But today a new day has dawned and brought with it new headlines as the media stands on its head and proclaims that today’s truth is that Primark has in fact delivered a strong performance with sales rising by 1%. Like for like sales in the UK rose by 1.2% where its share of the clothing market grew significantly. Despite suffering in Europe where sales were weak and fell by 4.7%, total sales including those from fifteen new stores in nine countries, grew by 5%

Perhaps George Weston the CEO got it right when he calmly headlined that it had been another year of progress, with strong profits, not only from Primark but from each of its other world beating divisions, grocery, agriculture and ingredients, with only sugar letting the side down. Adjusted profit before tax rose by 5% and earnings per share by 6% whilst the final dividend is increased by a healthy 10% in line with the promises of a strong  profit performance  made in Septembers update.

Marks & Spencer Group MKS waved its magicians wand and produced a 7.1% increase in profit before tax after revenue which fell by 3.1% in the half year to the 29th September. The company is now going through the first phase of it transformation programme which includes the closure of over 100 stores and the introduction of a” new, very determined and energetic management team”  which indicates that the previous management team must have been regarded as somewhat lacking in these qualities. The store closures had their effect on revenue with Clothing & Home down 2.7%, Food down by 0.2% or 2.9% on a like-for-like basis, reflecting tough trading. Looking at the level of their food prices perhaps there is little wonder that trading was tough.
Persimmon PSN “All gone” is the word from Persimmon which admits that at the end of its third quarter on the 6th November it is fully sold up for the current year and forward sales beyond 2018 are 9% up on a year ago. Sales prices remain firm and consumer confidence is described as being resilient.
Dairy Crest Group DCG claims delivery of  a good performance in the half year to the 30th September, driven by its two largest brands, Cathedral City and Clover. Profit before tax fell by 88% and basic earnings per share by 89%. Revenue rose by 2% and the interim dividend is to be increased by the same amount
