Public Profile

ClearMotion Inc, originally Levant Power Corp, was spun out of MIT in 2012 with an original focus of developing technology that would harness energy from vehicles' suspension system and utilize that energy to provide onboard electricity to the vehicle. In addition to creating energy out of a vehicle's suspension system, the company's original product aimed to improve ride quality using adaptable, variable-dampening suspension that would be installed in vehicles. In 2017, the company changed its name to ClearMotion and pivoted to be solely focused on developing proactive suspension and seating systems that give vehicles a smooth ride, negating bumps in the road. The technology is a "digital chassis" that uses HD maps, algorithms, and banks of big data, to continuously learn and adapt to a road’s profile, giving riders a comfortable and smooth ride regardless of a road's condition. The technology also has significant applications for self driving cars, where users may experience abnormally rough rides due to the car's inability to avoid a road's pot holes or bumps. With signficant venture backing and IP, the company expects to have its technology in all cars in the near future.
