What We're Building

Modern vehicles have hundreds of sensors and control units that collect data every millisecond. Acerta analyzes this data to detect anomalies and predict future failures. Using state of the art machine learning and statistical analysis, we learn a profile of normal vehicle behaviour. We then use this profile to identify emerging vehicle issues. We work with manufacturers and suppliers to improve their products and reduce recalls.
