At the end of 2017, German Autolabs closed an impressive seed round: €2 million ($2.2 million) with the help of Target Partners and several business angels.

Holger Weiss, CEO of the Berlin-based startup, and his co-founder, Patrick Weissert, convinced investors to jump on board and invest in a digital personal assistant, Chris.

Chris’ job is to keep drivers’ hands off of their phones and on their steering wheels.

While no roll-out date has been released (Chris’ software is still separate from the hardware), Weiss brought in a prototype to show what their product might look like.

But with self-driving cars on the horizon and car manufacturers integrating their own internal computers – also capable of providing drivers with information in real time – where does German Autolabs’ Chris fit in?
