Lidwave, a pioneering deep-tech startup, has developed a revolutionary coherent perception sensor-on-a-chip. This proprietary technology offers an in-depth grasp of environmental dynamics, delivering unparalleled precise Depth and Instantaneous Velocity data. It serves as a crucial bridge connecting the physical realm with the digital space. As we step into the next era of AI evolution, Lidwave's sensor is primed to redefine automation across sectors like Automotive, Industry 4.0, and Smart Cities.

The problem

The game-changing potential of LiDAR technology has been discussed for years in many applications, in particular road safety (ADAS & AV). But while impressive advancements have been made in the field, cost related entry barriers leave 3D sensing out of reach for many exciting initiatives. Accurate distance measurement requires high-speed, costly, and complex components that cannot be easily integrated. This hinders the adoption rate of LiDAR sensors.

Company's solution

Lidwave is approaching 3D sensing from a different perspective. Measuring the coherent properties instead of the speed of the light allows us to acquire supreme depth information using simple hardware realized on a single chip. Lidwave’s high-performance sensor is suitable for mass production via CMOS fabrication. Thus, the complexity of our sensor reduces to a camera-like operation. The result is a cost effective, robust, and reliable sensor.
