TetraVue, the leader in high definition 4D LIDAR technology, today announced that KLA Tencor, Lam Research and Tsing Capital have joined existing investors Robert Bosch Venture Capital GmbH, Samsung Catalyst Fund and Nautilus Ventures in providing additional funding to the company. TetraVue technology is radically different from current LIDAR approaches, merging the resolution of HD video with range data to enable the industry’s first long-range, 4D motion capture. It is the first 4D camera technology that captures real-time images with depth perception down to each pixel, allowing it to transform markets including autonomous vehicles, machine vision and factory automation.
TetraVue cameras uniquely merge digital video with LIDAR technology by capturing multi-megapixel images at up to 30 frames per second with accurate depth for each individual pixel. As a result, a TetraVue camera has the ability to process 100x more real-time data describing object location and motion in the surrounding environment.
With orders of magnitude more real-time spatial data about the surrounding environment from TetraVue cameras, advanced driver assist and autonomous driving systems are empowered to make faster and safer driving decisions. TetraVue is initially focused on the automotive market and is working with key partners to bring 4D LIDAR technology to market.
TetraVue will be demonstrating its technology at CES 2018
