AEye is a robotic vision pioneer which has developed breakthrough intelligent sensing and perception technology that will serve as the eyes and brains of autonomous vehicles. Its advanced vision system will enable a new level of safety for operators and passengers of driver-assisted or autonomous vehicles.
AEye’s technology platform is the first to “pre-fuse” solid state LiDAR with computer vision, coupled with artificial intelligence and customized software. The system intelligently scans a scene, focusing on the most relevant content unlike other technologies that analyze the entire scene and then removes less relevant content. By having a visual cortex behind the “eyes” of the vehicle that digests this information quickly, AEye greatly improves overall reliability.
The company is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and its other investors include Airbus Ventures, Intel Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Trucks Venture Capital and Tyche Partners.
