Congrats to Sinwaves for Receiving America’s Seed Fund Grant!

We couldn’t be more proud of our startup client, SinWaves, for receiving the America’s Seed Fund grant from the National Science Foundation! This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) commercialization grant is designed to speed up the commercialization of awardees’ technology while supporting their ongoing research and development. Specifically, SinWaves will be developing traffic signal prioritization (TSP) and emergency vehicle preemption using their software protocol for managing V2X communication. Their technology is creating a solution for V2X communications that can optimally reach the connected vehicle network, improving mobility and traffic management.

How do they feel about receiving the NSF grant?
“This is a phenomenal opportunity to promote two young entrepreneurs’ dreams to pursue solutions that work towards improving commute time. By finding ways to improve the current traffic infrastructure, the reduction of congestion will benefit the needs of every commuter,” said Tim Menard, CEO and Founder of SinWaves.
