Corporate Overview

We are a highly technology-driven innovator that specializes in SWIR-based 2D and 3D sensors for next-generation mobility.
To realize safe autonomous driving, mobility-related sensors have to be used under harsh weather conditions. However, unfortunately, all of the sensors are influenced by environmental conditions due to adverse weather. Compare to those of existing NIR-based sensors, SWIR has advantages in terms of fogging conditions, human eye safety, and less interference under the solar spectrum environment. In addition, it can separate ice, water, and snow on the road surface.
