Last month, $205 million was raised in funding by technology companies in Chicago. This trend began back in August when $199 million raised and September figures was $182 million. Here we take a look at industries that are making these impacts.
A new initiative in Illinois is being launched for self-driving car technology. A human driver will have to sit in the car in case of emergencies but there will be a robot chauffeur “driving” the car. This new technology is however likely to seriously reduce traffic fatalities.
Another technology firm making an impact in Chicago is Rooam which is due to open before the end of the year. The company – which recently purchased Tally – gives users the ability to pay for food and drinks at various eateries via an app.
