Doosan Infracore invests in autonomous driving start-up

Apr 13,2018
Doosan Infracore, a machinery manufacturing subsidiary of Doosan, invested in PoteNit, a local start-up specializing in autonomous driving systems, the company said Thursday.

Doosan Infracore has been striving to develop technology that can automate machinery and is hoping to expand its business area to offering automation solutions. The major reason for the investment is the start-up’s commercialized autonomous mobile robot. It has already been commercialized for use in manufacturing and logistics sites using its own technology, the company said.

A spokesperson from Doosan said the two companies will work together to advance technologies to run machines autonomously and help the start-up enter overseas markets using its global sales networks.

The amount invested was not disclosed.
