Partners Erect Next-Gen Solid-State Flash LiDAR

Flash LiDAR tech startup Sense Photonics and semiconductor expert Infineon Technologies AG are partnering to deliver the next revolution in LiDAR for autonomous vehicles, industrial robotics, environmental monitoring, and other relevant applications.

Reportedly, Sense Photonics' core technology enables a simple, high-performance, solid state system, with no moving parts, that can meet the performance, reliability and cost requirements for automotive and industrial automation applications.

 

Scott Burroughs, co-founder and CEO of Sense Photonics, says, “We are excited that our technology is capable of delivering high resolution, long-range flash LiDAR in a compact and energy efficient package. For users pushing the limits in AI and machine learning, the 3D sensor is their view of the world, so point cloud quality and density is essential for exceptional product performance.”

 

“Infineon is excited to partner with Sense Photonics and host them at CES,” said Ritesh Tyagi, Head of the Silicon Valley Automotive Innovation Center (SVIC) at Infineon Technologies. “We see tremendous promise in their core technology and have been impressed with their strong technical team. Sense Photonics' solid-state solution, in conjunction with Infineon's automotive qualified REAL3 Time-of-Flight image products, uniquely addresses the requirements of both ADAS and autonomous vehicle applications.”
