Advanced Vehicle Technology Accelerator
Prototype Prime, in partnership with the City of Peachtree Corners (GA) and TechConnectHub.com, has created an Advanced Vehicle Technology Accelerator to provide an innovation testbed for emerging startups and established brands to work together to discover, test and implement next generation technologies. The city is creating a 1.4 mile autonomous vehicle track adjacent to Prototype Prime in Technology Park, running from Spalding Drive to Peachtree Parkway. Autonomous vehicles on the track will be interacting with live traffic. The track is expected to be fully operational in January of 2019.
The Accelerator is currently accepting applications from startups that want to take advantage of the test track and be a part of the advanced vehicle ecosystem. Fortune 500 companies will also be a part of the Accelerator, sharing technology challenges and interacting with startups to find solutions to existing problems and to collaboratively discover what is next. Space for research and development is available on a limited basis. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Accelerator as corporate partner, mentor, startup or investor, please contact email@example.com today.
Prototype Prime will serve as the innovation, collaboration, and testing hub for the advanced vehicle project as the new track will be just outside of the building’s front door. With over 25,000 square feet of space, including a prototype design lab, Prototype Prime has the amenities and resources available to help startups and established companies dream, build, and scale the future of autonomous vehicles together.
