Silicon Valley-based Tula Technology provides innovative award winning software controls to optimize propulsion efficiency and emissions across the mobility spectrum, including gasoline-powered, diesel, alternative fueled, hybrid, and electric vehicles. Its proprietary dynamic skip fire (DSF®) technology modulates power output by dynamically deciding to fire or skip each cylinder immediately prior to firing and has broad application across all sizes and types of engines. Tula’s 55+ engineers focus solely on developing solutions for auto manufacturers (OEMs) seeking cost-effective ways to improve propulsion and reduce CO2 and NOx emissions without compromising vehicle performance. Tula’s culture of innovation has resulted in breakthrough technology and a robust global patent portfolio of 140+ patents and another 120+ patents pending. Founded in 2008, Tula Technology is a privately held company backed by Sequoia Capital, Sigma Partners, Khosla Ventures, GM Ventures, Delphi Technologies, and Franklin Templeton.
Internal-Combustion Passenger Vehicles: Tula’s DSF technology enables up to a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions in passenger vehicles. Tula has also developed solutions to improve fuel efficiency of hybrids with eDSF.
Commercial Vehicles: Tula’s dDSF technology (DSF for diesel engines) is exceptionally well positioned in the commercial vehicles market as one of the very few technologies that can reduce both CO2 emissions (by 8%) and NOx emissions (by 20-70%).
Electric and Autonomous Vehicles: Tula has developed technology to support EVs with its Dynamic Motor Drive (DMD) technology, and aDSF technology for optimizing engine control and torque for autonomous vehicles.
