EYES FOR
AUTONOMOUS CARS

Laser-based object sensing solutions for autonomous vehicles, based on a radically innovative light sensor

DEPTH COVERAGE

To drive independently, autonomous vehicles will need great eyesight. They’ll have to identify tire debris on the asphalt 80 meters away just as well as a motorcycle crossing a road 150 meters ahead. And they’ll have to do it in the middle of the night or facing blinding direct sunlight. Such real life demands translate to performance requirements that no existing technology, including any LiDAR or radar, can meet. Until Oryx.
Seamlessly integrated to any side of the vehicle, Oryx's coherent object sensor can meet all the performance requirements of autonomous vehicles at a mass market price point.

BETTER VISION =
EASIER DECISION

With Oryx’s superior vision capabilities, the brain of the autonomous cars would have an easier task figuring out its surrounding and making the correct and safest automatic driving decisions. Richer depth sensing data translates to simpler algorithms, quicker responses and lower load on compute resources. In an environment that would be very sensitive to machine errors, this extra level of performance & precision could make all the difference between success and failure, between safety and danger. We call it the decisive 1%.

NICE WORK, EINSTEIN

The heart of Oryx Vision’s innovation is a groundbreaking sensor that receives light as waves rather than particles. The fathers of modern physics predicted it could be done; Oryx demonstrates they were right. The system sends invisible and eye-safe coherent laser flashes at the 10µm spectrum and receives the returned signals with an array of microscopic antennas. The result is depth resolution superior to LiDAR’s at the range of automotive radar, all packaged in a solid state system with no moving parts.

WE ARE ORYX

Oryx Vision was founded by veterans of the Israeli hi tech industry, with a proven track record of turning daring ideas into commercial realities. CEO Rani Wellingstein has sold his last venture, Intucell, to Cisco; VP R&D David Ben-Bassat has sold his, RFWaves, to Vishay Technologies.
Oryx’s sensor is the fruit of years of stealth R&D that originated in one of the world’s most demanding technological environments. A team of highly capable engineers, a large proportion of them physics PhDs, are now working on commercializing the technology. The company is backed by Bessemer Venture Partners. Its advisory board includes experts from the automotive and the semiconductor industries.
