Pendel Mobility

Driving the future

Our story

Birth

Upon the creation of Pendel Mobility, although the demand for autonomous-driving solutions is sky-rocketing, its deployment is far from being a walk in the park. Uncertainties and doubts shared by tech providers and clients on legal framework, potential use case analysis, funding programs, and witnessing the multiple benefits of this technology encouraged our co-founders to develop Pendel Mobility, a one-stop shop solution to speed up the process and contribute with their expertise to automate future mobility! 

Name

Just like a pendulum, we are connecting the two sides; technology and use cases; clients and providers; the future and the present. And that’s why this idea was named PENDEL, which in german stands for PENDULUM.

Logo

And of course, the logo reflects a pendulum connecting the gaps as well as the wheels on which autonomous solutions will change the world.
