Renault & Nissan open innovation lab in Tel Aviv

Renault and Nissan opened a new facility for their joint innovation lab in Tel Aviv, Atidim Park, which will enable the Alliance to accelerate a unique model of collaboration with Israeli start-ups and with the Israel Innovation Authority.

Known as the Alliance Innovation Lab Tel Aviv, the facility focuses on sensors for autonomous driving, cyber security and big data. The Alliance is currently testing and working on over ten joint prototyping projects with Israeli start-ups at different stages, among them Apollo Power, Argus, AutoTalks, BrightWay Vision, Electreon, Enigmatos, IRP systems, Karamba, Moodify, Saferide and Upstream.

The lab's location in Atidim Park enables it to carry out Proof of Concepts (POCs) in ideal conditions and co-develop prototypes in Tel Aviv's smart city experiment zone. With a surface area of 1600 square meters, the lab provides start-ups with the space to test technologies with real vehicles, as well as modern office space in a live ecosystem.
