Company Summary

We develop imaging sensors that recognize and locate fast moving objects in 3D in real-time, enabling driving assistance or autonomous navigation. Target automotive safety requirements for resolution (cm), accuracy (filtering background light), distance (100m), speed (1000 fps), low cost(standard CMOS). Customers are integrators and technology providers adhering to NCAP car safety standards. Other licensing in bioimaging, gesture recognition.
