Sensors and Measurement for Battery Manufacturing Sets Allosense to Revolutionize Industrial IoT

Allosense, an emerging technology startup based in San Antonio, Texas, that manufactures and develops advanced sensors and measurement solutions for battery manufacturing, recently joined the Techstars Industries of the Future Program. The accelerator program supports and advances world-class startups focused on emerging technologies across industries, including artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, quantum information science, 5G/advanced wireless technology, biotechnology, and clean energy technology. 

Only 1 percent of applicants are selected to be invited to the Techstars program, and with impressive customers and market engagement even in its early stage, the company, which actively supports electric vehicle manufacturers and defense operations, shows great promise based on their work with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and automakers trying to improve the yield and quality of battery systems.

Allosense is constantly advancing its hardware and software products, including innovative battery test systems in the expanding electric vehicle (EV) market. Sensor and test automation are crucial for driving advanced manufacturing as demand for EVs surges and labor becomes scarce. Roman Sandoval, Founder and CEO of Allosense, recently introduced their latest software solution, Dash—a secure data fabric platform that addresses a prevalent manufacturing issue. 

“Dash enables our customers to effortlessly connect various industrial equipment and instruments to manufacturing networks. It provides data science teams with a powerful tool for analyzing and gaining insights on parts and processes while enhancing yield and product quality,” said Sandoval.

Sandoval recognizes the immense potential of the electric vehicle battery manufacturing sector, which is currently experiencing an impressive 28 percent annual growth rate. He believes Allosense, with its cutting-edge battery testers and software solutions, is at the forefront of this industry. With battery manufacturing being a matter of national security, Sandoval sees enormous opportunities for his company in this field. 

“I’m looking for breakthrough technologies that have the potential to change the world,” said Tricia Martinez, managing director of Techstars Industries of the Future. “I am looking for founders that have what it takes to build with empathy, navigate complex systems, handle extreme ups and downs and ambiguity, and will do whatever it takes to bring breakthrough technologies to market. We saw that in Roman. We welcome Allosense to the program and look forward to supporting them as they push the boundaries in this emerging technology.”

As part of the Techstars Industries of the Future cohort, Allosense will have access to the most advanced technologies, a network of top scientists from around the world, and high-tech facilities to evaluate their products through Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Tennessee Valley Authority, and the University of Tennessee. Allosense is one of 10 startups selected for the second class of the Techstars Industries of the Future Program.

Allosense is an industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) company that makes next-generation sensors and measurement solutions for advancing electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing and equipment monitoring. The company is backed by the co-founder of Uber, Garret Camp’s VC (Expa), and finance executives from Rackspace and Bumble. The team has deep technical and domain expertise from Tesla, Apple, Intel, and Qualcomm.

Allosense is a Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) awardee by AFWERX, the U.S. Air Force’s Innovation Hub. Allosense is a Techstars, NSIN, and Oracle portfolio company. The company works with the largest EV manufacturers in the U.S. and various defense/aerospace installations.
