Tel Aviv, Israel-based Ottopia, a technology company focused on remote assistance for self-driving cars, has closed $3 million in seed funding. The round was led by MizMaa Ventures, with participation from Glory Ventures, Plug and Play and NextGear.

Ottopia’s software platform allows a human operator and the car’s AI to work together during a remote intervention, according to the company. The human assists the autonomous vehicle with decision-making in a complex scenario; the vehicle then executes that decision.
