Lotus Engineering and Iprova have joined forces to design products based on AI for the transport sector – from e-scooters to autonomous trucks – all the while with sustainability in sight.

Iprova’s Invention Studio platform leverages AI, data and automation to transform what can often be very manual and slow-moving invention processes. Its data-driven approach to invention brings a systematic and repeatable process to creating breakthrough inventions across the transportation sector.

Lotus Engineering offers prototyping, proof-of-concept and development expertise based on more than four decades of experience as a global consultancy. It provides comprehensive consultancy services to many of the world’s OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers and is internationally recognised for its long-standing contribution to ground-breaking engineering and innovative vehicle development.

“Our clients have told us that they want to make bold and breakthrough products at key points of disruption. It’s a process driven by creativity and therefore a need to invent.  Iprova’s technology delivers this efficiently at scale and so this collaboration adds a vital new element to our portfolio of consultancy services,” said Mark Stringer, Commercial Director, Lotus Engineering. “Just as there is a need for invention, there is also a need for implementation – to develop proof-of-concept prototypes and then engineer products.”
