*Product is currently in development and not yet available on the general market.


The Problem

Current self-driving systems neglect the largest market: existing cars

Driving wastes your valuable time. Tasks such as washing dishes and doing laundry are mundane and repetitive and have been automated thanks to advances in technology. Driving is next.

Right now self-driving availability is restricted to specific brands of new and expensive cars. Leading self-driving companies have defined autonomous capabilities under their terms, with billions of dollars poured into development that only benefits a few. The current distribution of self-driving capabilities neglects the largest market — existing cars.

The Solution

Paving the road for millions of compatible cars 

SideCar is here to change the narrative. We plan to open the door to millions of compatible cars that are already on the road by offering a way to modernize your vehicle at a fair price — $999 (product not yet sold on market).

SideCar is a device attached to the inside of the windshield, right behind the rearview mirror. Our technology uses the existing LKAS (lane-keeping assist) and ACC (automatic cruise control) systems in the car to tap into gas, steering, and brakes. Our AI, paired with Epilog optics, gives the user the highest quality self-driving experience available.

*Product is currently in development and not yet available on the general market.

We want to be the platform that bridges the gap in the self-driving market. With an affordable price-point and an untapped market of consumers, we believe SideCar will be the device that changes the game.

The Market & Our Traction

Collaborations with major players and products that work!

The immediate market for Epilog technology is driver assistance and retrofitting ~50 million cars on the road today, as well as those designed for 2025 and later (source).

We have created a production-ready model in partnership with one of the world’s largest contract manufacturers Jabil Optics and in collaboration with several large OEM automotive manufacturers. With 10 patents granted we are looking to bring our proprietary, affordable tech to even more industries.

Why Invest

Production-ready product, great price and billions of market space

We believe advancements in robotics will bring huge benefits to society. From driving your car to making your food, boring and repetitive tasks will be automated by advances in AI technology. We think Epilog is in a position to improve the lives of millions through our advanced AI vision systems, starting with SideCar and perhaps one day even humanoid robots. Let's create the future!

Epilog vs Typical Vision


Vision versus LIDAR

Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is similar to radar or sonar, it uses the reflection time of a primary beam to estimate distances to objects. LIDAR was first invented in the 1960s and has recently gained popularity in autonomous vehicles. The image captured below by one of our engineers in San Francisco shows the LIDAR system on a Waymo test vehicle. You can see a portion of the laser pattern (reflected back at the Waymo car) highlighted as red dots.

LIDAR pattern projected by a Waymo self-driving vehicle

The laser pattern is necessarily coarse, given the state of the latest LIDAR technology available today. Consider that as of 2021, there was an estimated 30x more industry investment in AI than in LIDAR. With rapid advances in AI, we can now estimate object distances within a foot using vision only, not nearly as good as LIDAR but already sufficiently good for self-driving. Also, because of eye safety concerns, LIDAR has a limited range in practice. LIDAR can't detect the road surface ahead past 150 feet and fails in foggy conditions or during heavy rain.

For all the reasons mentioned above, we believe LIDAR offers no practical benefit for self-driving applications. In our view, the manufacturers offering LIDAR today see it as a helpful marketing tool or differentiator when competing with the current market leader Tesla, which does not utilize LIDAR at all. Elon Musk most famously said in 2019, "LIDAR is a fool's errand… Anyone relying on lidar is doomed." We couldn't agree more!


Notice of Material Change in Offering

[The following is an automated notice from the StartEngine team].

Hello! Recently, a change was made to the Epilog offering. Here's an excerpt describing the specifics of the change:

Campaign is extending its end date by 60 days

When live offerings undergo changes like these on StartEngine, the SEC requires that certain investments be reconfirmed. If your investment requires reconfirmation, you will be contacted by StartEngine via email with further instructions.


Invest in AI

AI is everywhere now, with experts still determining where it will eventually lead. At Epilog, we see AI as an excellent augmentation of human capability. A major technology-driven trend to affect every type of human interaction in the coming years. We were curious to know how AI sees Epilog.

The images below were generated from the corresponding captions using AI. AI imagery uses a "generator" to create new images and a "discriminator" to decide which created images are considered successful. Examples of text-to-image models include OpenAI DALL-E and Google Brain, with "Thinking Machines" using supercomputers for this purpose as early as the 1980s.

CES 2023 Automotive Industry Update

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been steadily becoming the most important automotive industry event since 2015. The last time Epilog exhibited at CES (and simultaneously at Jabil's booth) was in 2019, prior to Covid. We are glad CES has returned this year despite lingering risks and mass cancellations last year. 

Here are some of the noteworthy automotive highlights related to Epilog from CES.

Sony Honda: The Afeela concept introduced by Sony and Honda Mobility is more Playstation than Civic. There are 45 sensors in the Afeela concept, about half of them being cameras. If this vehicle goes to production (projected 2026), it will be significantly simplified. For Epilog, Sony remains a valued partner/supplier of advanced sensors, and we plan to resume collaboration with Honda later this year.

Continental: Continental is a Tier-1 automotive OEM based in Germany. We met the former Continental CEO Elmar Degenhart at CES in 2019 and explored a collaboration in developing next-generation vehicle vision technology. Continental Autonomous Mobility Head Hans Feigel presenting at CES 2023 said "at the moment, it's not about hype; it's about execution and bringing safety features on the road to support the drivers." He anticipates Full Self Driving (FSD) functions in fleets first for fixed operation (A to B) in 3-4 years, followed by Robotaxis and road cars eventually. We couldn't agree more, and that's why we created Sidecar and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Bosch: Bosch is a Tier-1 automotive OEM. Bosch introduced the "RideCare Companion" at CES 2023. The device was designed with ride-hailing drivers in mind and includes an interior camera and exterior dashcam with a display on the front to let drivers and riders know the service is active. SideCar provides significantly more advanced functionality than RideCare, most importantly driver assistance. RideCare is an interesting product since SideCar can be considered an alternative or enhanced product option for the same use. We look forward to a potential collaboration with Bosch in the near future.

Bosch:  Bosch also introduced the "Automated Valet Parking" at CES 2023. This has similar functionality to the Summon feature introduced by Tesla in 2016. SideCar does not currently support a similar feature, but this is planned when surround cameras become standard in more vehicles.

Illustration credit: Bosch

BMW: The BMW concept is called the iVision "Dee" (Digital Emotional Experience). The claimed innovation here is the fully immersive cockpit (entirely blocking the road ahead) and the vehicle's ability to change colors. We presented BMW iVentures in 2017 and did not see a fit in their future roadmap - that remains the same.

Happy Holidays 2022 from Team Epilog

As the holidays approach, we hope everyone finds time to enjoy the season. Throughout 2022, our team worked together to accomplish significant milestones. 

With the year coming to a close, we want to thank our awesome investors and supporters! We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.


How difficult is it to build SideCar?

Elon explains that manufacturing is the hardest part of product development. He estimates that anywhere between 10x–100x more effort goes into a production system compared to the design process. This is in the context of the Raptor rocket engine, but the concept applies to most manufacturing processes.

Although Sidecar may be less complex than a Raptor engine, our goal is to manufacture 100x-1000x more units. Securing the supply chain for even our initial batch of 1000 units in the Covid environment has been challenging and took nearly a year to complete. The good news is once the production flow is established, scaling up by 10x-100x units will require less effort by engaging a manufacturing partner like Jabil.

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
