私たちのプラットフォームはより速く、より正確に対象を認識しながら、目的にあった情報取得を行います。
この早期検知機能は、より的確な判断に繋がり、安全性を向上させ、継続した移動を可能にします。

私たちのヒストリー —

すべてはここから始まりました

Luis Dussanは、戦闘機の照準システム設計で航空宇宙産業をリードする設計者です。
彼は、自動運転の自動車が戦闘機と同様の課題、すなわち対象物の視認と分類、更には反応を即座に行う必要性があることを認識していました。Luisは2013年にAEyeを設立し、NASAやLockheed、米国空軍、そしてDARPA出身のエンジニア達によるAEyeの4Sight™ LiDARプラットフォーム(特許取得済み)を開発しました。
このプラットフォームは、自動車やトラック輸送、スマートインフラ、ロジスティック、またはオフハイウェイの各分野でセンシングアプリケーションを展開する際の、要とも言える役割を担っています。
