Oryx Vision has created a coherent optical radar system, that improves the depth perception of autonomous vehicles.
Oryx’s technology, coherent optical radar, splits the difference between radar and LiDAR. Like a LiDAR, it uses a laser to illuminate the road ahead, but like a radar it treats the reflected signal as a wave rather than a particle.
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.
