SILICON VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Phantom Auto, the leading provider of remote operation software, is honored and proud to share that our Remote Operation Platform has been selected as one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022.
Each year, TIME reveals its annual list of the Best Inventions, which features extraordinary innovations changing our lives. To compile the list, TIME solicited nominations from TIME’s editors and correspondents around the world, paying special attention to growing fields. TIME then evaluated each contender on a number of key factors, including originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.
Shai Magzimof, Co-founder and CEO at Phantom Auto reacted to the news:
“In 2017, we set out to show the world that the workforce of the future would not be possible without humans working hand-in-hand with technology. Five years on, as companies around the world are unfortunately struggling to match workers with critical jobs that need to be filled, our vision is becoming reality. We’re humbled to receive this award from TIME, reinforcing our view that the global labor economy is ready for a paradigm-shift enabled by remote operation technology and an entirely new category of tech-enabled jobs.”
TIME wrote the following:
With Phantom Auto’s Remote Operation Platform for Logistics, drivers of warehouse and manufacturing facility vehicles sit at a computer outfitted with a steering wheel, pedals and other accessories. But ultra-low latency software is the heart of the platform, giving remote workers real-time 360-degree eyes and ears around a vehicle and the ability to communicate with on-the-ground colleagues via a two-way audio system. They can even jump between different vehicles—in different facilities—with the click of a button. With drivers able to work from anywhere, companies can tap a “virtually limitless talent pool” and address labor shortages, says Elliot Katz, Phantom Auto’s Co-founder and Chief Business Officer.
Elliot Katz, Phantom’s Co-founder and Chief Business Officer added:
“We are honored to be recognized by TIME for our human-centric technology that benefits our customers, and the employees of our customers, equally. We’re proud that our commercial success can be matched by a positive impact on the lives of essential logistics workers, who until now have never had the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of working remotely in hazard-free environments.”
