MegaRide is an official academic spin-off and an innovative start-up company, tightly linked to the activities carried out by the Vehicle Dynamics research group of University Federico II, whose expertise is oriented to the development of models and procedures to be employed by vehicle manufacturers, racing teams and road & traffic management companies seeking solutions in the fields of real-time simulations, road safety algorithms and V2V & V2I connections in smart mobility scenarios.
At the current stage, after about 2 years, MegaRide is a fully operative company, producing significant profits thanks to contracts signed with motorsport teams, (in exclusivity agreements with AUDI Sport in Formula E and with Ducati Corse in motoGP) interested in real-time algorithms for physical simulations, and with vehicle and tire manufacturing companies (Maserati, Pirelli, Prometeon, …), for which advanced remote diagnostics algorithms and innovative safety control logics have been developed.
