Tallinn, Estonia – Latitude59, the leading tech conference in the Baltic region, has announced that it will be the first event in the world to offer road legal teledriven transport to its visitors around the city’s public streets. The conference has partnered with Elmo, the Estonian fast scaling company behind the world’s first road legal teledriven technology development and car sharing service.
The Elmo electric cars, which are equipped with cutting-edge teledriven technology, will be available to transport visitors daily during the event at Kultuurikatel and also providing ride from conference venue to the afterparty on the 25th of May. This will not only provide a hassle-free and comfortable transportation experience but will also contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of the event.
“We are thrilled to partner with Elmo to offer our visitors a sustainable and innovative transportation solution,” said Liisi Org, the CEO of Latitude59. “At Latitude59, we are committed to creating a more sustainable future, and this partnership with Elmo is one great example to that commitment.”
The teledriven technology used in the Elmo electric cars allows the vehicles to be operated remotely, enabling a safe and convenient transportation experience for passengers. The cars are also equipped with advanced safety features including collision avoidance and emergency braking systems.
“We are excited to be a part of this groundbreaking initiative with Latitude59,” said Enn Laansoo Jr., the CEO and Founder of Elmo. “Our electric cars are designed to be sustainable and environmentally friendly, and we are proud to partner with an event that shares our commitment to sustainability and better mobility options for the future.”
Elmo attended Latitude59 also last year as a promising start-up, offering teledriving experience from the on-site station and got lot of attention from the quests. It has been a turbulent year for the Estonian company with 9 months long technology road-show in EU and US and becoming the first company in the world delivering road legal teledriving e-cars to car sharing service and already servicing customers in two cities – Tallinn and Tartu.
Latitude59 is known for bringing together the brightest minds in the tech industry to explore emerging trends and share insights. With this partnership with Elmo, the conference is taking a step towards a more sustainable future while providing a unique and innovative experience for its attendees.
The 2023 edition of Latitude59 will take place on May 24-26 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Elmo is revolutionizing car sharing by delivering remotely its rental cars to customers with its own innovative teledriving technology since 2022 being the first in service in Europe.
