Israeli startup TriEye has announced a collaboration with Porsche, to further improve visibility and performance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles (AV). TriEye’s Short-Wave Infra-Red (SWIR) sensing technology enhances visibility in adverse weather and night-time conditions.
As ADAS systems are expected to operate under a wide range of scenarios, car manufacturers have recognized the need to integrate advanced sensing solutions. Even when combining several sensing solutions such as radar, lidar, and standard cameras, it is not always possible to accurately detect and identify all objects on the road when visibility is limited.
TriEye is a Tel Aviv based semiconductor company. Its SWIR technology is based on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors (CMOS).
Avi Bakal, CEO and Co-Founder of TriEye, says: “Our collaboration with Porsche has been exceptional from day one and we look forward to growing this potential. The fact that Porsche, a leading car manufacturer, has decided to invest in TriEye and evaluate TriEye’s CMOS-based SWIR camera to help further improve Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is a significant vote of confidence in our technology.”
The news comes following TriEye’s August announcement that it has expanded its Series A funding round led by Intel Capital, with the participation of Porsche Ventures, Marius Nacht and existing investor Grove Ventures.
