When Kontrol was born on an airfield in 2017, a question was raised…

How can compliance be ensured for an autonomous system which applies not only for drones, but also for many other systems like cars and trucks?

Our answer is to facilitate certification, and the safe integration of autonomous systems into our environment which will enable true autonomy for aviation, and ground vehicle systems distribution.

We at Kontrol are a highly motivated international team of 18 minds supported by strong advisors from leading institutions such as MIT, Stanford, Berkley & ETH Zürich integrating state-of-the-art technology into our products. We are a group of interdisciplinary experts with robust backgrounds in the aviation and automotive industries, experts in the fields of functional safety, cyber security, robotics and software.

Our dream is to see trusted and secure autonomous vehicles on the road and in the air, accepted and integrated into our daily lives.
