We take the guesswork out of autonomy.

As the 'gold standard' for performance and safety in the industry, our sensors are designed to reliably see not just where objects are, but what they are — even at distance.

Longer range Perception

Our technology enables both detection and classification of objects out to 250 meters, including hard to see "dark" objects as low as 5% reflectivity like a black car or tire in the road. Farther sight means enough time to react safely, even at highway speeds.
