Israeli startup TriEye, whose Short-Wave-Infra-Red (SWIR) sensing technology enables vision in adverse weather and night-time conditions, has expanded its Series A round to $19 million with an investment from the German sports car manufacturer Porsche. 

 

TriEye was founded in 2017 by Avi Bakal (CEO), Omer Kapach (VP R&D) and Prof. Uriel Levy (CTO), after nearly a decade of advanced nanophotonics research by Prof. Levy at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The company has succeeded in developing an HD SWIR camera that is a smaller size, higher resolution, and a fraction of the price of current technologies. TriEye already succeeded in proving that the technology works and can be mass-produced.

 

The company’s CMOS-based Raven camera, whose initial samples are due to launch in 2020, is designed to save lives on the roads. Once integrated, the camera will allow ADAS and AV to achieve unprecedented vision capabilities under common adverse weather and low-light conditions such as fog, dust or night-time.
