LiDAR TAKES A
The world’s first coherent flash automotive LiDAR, based on groundbreaking light-sensing antennas
Oryx’s flash automotive LiDAR achieves the depth vision performance required for true autonomous driving - yet it’s as simple and robust as a digital camera. A coherent, frequency-modulated LiDAR, it has a million times better signal-to-noise ratio than scanning systems, is not blinded by the sun or other LiDARs, and produces both range and velocity data for each point in its field of view. Solid-state, with no mechanics at any scale, it enables auto-grade durability.
BETTER VISION =
Oryx’s superior depth performance impacts the entire autonomous driving stack. With richer, more precise, & longer range view of its surrounding, the car’s software brain will make faster and better driving decisions, using simpler algorithms and fewer compute resources. This extra level of precision will be a critical for letting autonomous vehicles takes the wheel. After all, it’s our children who will be driven in them.
A TINY HUGE INNOVATION
Oryx’s singular innovation is a microscopic antenna that can receive light’s tiny and ultra-fast waves. Unlike photodetectors, our antennas are not wavelength-restricted, enabling a low-cost coherent LiDAR; we assemble tens of thousands of them into one sensor, creating a solid-state flash system; and we make them from silicon, unlocking mass market economics.
A TEAM TO DREAM OF
Oryx employs an elite team of physicists, optical engineers, analog designers, software developers, hardware engineers, antenna designers, and signal processing experts. Its two founders had already turned daring ideas into a commercial success. CEO Rani Wellingstein has sold his last venture, Intucell, to Cisco; VP R&D David Ben-Bassat has sold his, RFWaves, to Vishay. The company is backed by Bessemer Venture Partners, Third Point Ventures, WRV, Union Tech Ventures, Maniv & Trucks VC.
