Commentary from Lior Tal, Cyngn’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:

“Q1 showcased our achievement to be chosen by a marquee customer like John Deere. Our product offering achieves immense validation from being selected by a world-leading brand like Deere.”

“Alongside valuable existing deployments that continued through the last several months, we conducted initial deployments at a number of new organizations across manufacturing and logistics. This progress with additional initial deployments continues to underscore the manufacturing sector’s growing need for AVs and underpins the commercial momentum of our autonomous DriveMod solutions.”

“This quarter, we also published the results of a study conducted through our production deployment with US Continental, where our vehicles automated nearly 900 monthly trips. The study revealed that our vehicles not only achieved a 4x increase in efficiency but also created opportunities for employee promotions. In addition, RobotLAB joined the Cyngn Distributor Network, paving the way for joint sales efforts. We also aligned ourselves with Nvidia to power DriveMod’s artificial intelligence, secured our 19th US patent, and released our auto-unhitch feature.

“As we progress into 2024, Cyngn remains committed to developing state of the art technology and accelerating our sales efforts to create commercial success. I am excited by the opportunity that lies ahead.”

Key Milestones and Achievements:

  • Valuable Progress with Renowned Brands. Cyngn joined John Deere supply base and was chosen to deploy its DriveMod Tuggers to their Dubuque, IA operation. Cyngn also announced the completion of an initial deployment with Rivian.

  • Demonstrable Efficiency Gains. In February, Cyngn also published the results of a study at one of its early deployment sites, U.S. Continental. There, Cyngn found that its vehicles were 4x more efficient than their human counterparts. This success resulted in the customer renewing its commercial contract to extend the deployment of DriveMod Stockchasers. Cyngn also deployed at additional organizations across manufacturing and logistics.

  • Key Collaborations. Cyngn added RobotLAB, a premier robotics integrator that has deployed over 10,000 robots with customers across the globe, to its Distributor Network. Cyngn also announced that its next-gen DriveMod Kit will harness NVIDIA AI computers and additionally showed off the first footage of the DriveMod Tugger in action. In March, Cyngn attended MODEX and premiered the Motrec MT-160 DriveMod Tugger to more than 30,000 attendees.

  • Proprietary Technology. Cyngn brought the total number of granted U.S. patents for the Company’s autonomous vehicle and driving solutions to 19. Cyngn also released its auto-unhitch feature, a hands-off solution for our industrial autonomous vehicles to drop off cargo that enhances operational efficiency and brings greater value to customers.
