Techstars, one of the first startup accelerators globally, has launched the Smart Mobility Accelerator Program in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center, Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation and CRT Foundation: among the 12 companies selected internationally is Latitudo 40 ( https://www.latitudo40.com/), a Neapolitan company that offers a platform for decision making based on the detection of satellite data and AI / ML algorithms.
“A new challenge for our team – comments Gaetano Volpe, CEO Latitudo 40 – now engaged in the Techstars Smart Mobility acceleration program. We aim to create a City Data Platform to support the planning and monitoring of the cities of the future thanks to easy access to satellite images and our Artificial Intelligence algorithms ».
Founded in 2017 by 4 experts in the space sector and image analysis, Latitudo 40 combined the 20 years of experience of the «senior» founders with the multidisciplinary and young team that has grown to over 10 people. The team now has artificial intelligence, machine learning experts, image processing technicians, UIX specialists as well as a constantly growing sales & marketing team.
“To create smart, sustainable and inclusive cities – explains Volpe – it is necessary to have historical and continuous monitoring data available. Through easy access to satellite image processing and with the use of analysis and classification algorithms, developed in our R&D laboratories, we are able to provide direct information to improve citizens’ lives, looking at cities from space. We don’t just limit ourselves to cities, our motto is ‘Earth Analytics made Simple’. Every day we put our passion into creating new tools that allow people to monitor any place on our planet, with the simple skills and knowledge needed to read an email or publish your photos on social networks ».
With all this information at your fingertips, it will then be possible to make better and real-time decisions to support activities and have a positive impact in the workflows of companies and people. From infrastructure monitoring to precision agriculture, from urban planning to emergency response, Latitudo 40 has created the simplest and fastest platform to transform satellite imagery into geospatial information to support day-to-day decisions.
