ClearMotion, formerly Levant Power Corporation, is a global automotive technology company that commercializes a proactive ride system.
ClearMotion is on a mission to improve the quality of time in motion.
ClearMotion was founded out of MIT in 2009 by Shakeel Avadhany, Zackary Anderson and Vladimir Tarasov. The company is headquartered in Woburn, Massachusetts, with office in Warwickshire, UK.
ClearMotion built its name by using software-controlled actuators to replace traditional shock absorbers for cars. Working with vehicle sensors, its software system can predict road surface conditions, which in turn informs its flagship product, an electrohydraulic unit, to counteract disturbances on the road.
ClearMotion has emerged with a product for modern vehicle platforms – partnering with Bridgestone, Qualcomm, and a host of auto suppliers to introduce the technology into production vehicles.
ClearMotion is now introducing in-car 4D motions that coordinate with the vehicle’s infotainment system. The company acquired the Bose Ride business, Project Sound active suspension, and other predictive road-sensing software from Bose.
ClearMotion is backed J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Microsoft, NEA, Qualcomm, Nio Capital, BAI Capital, Franklin Templeton, NewView Capital, Acadia Woods Partners, and others. The company raised $39M in new financing on Sep 07, 2022. This brings ClearMotion's total funding to $317.8M to date. ClearMotion was valued at $2B from a financing raised in Jan 2019.
