Sense Photonics

Data-Rich 3D perception systems for mobility, industrial and robotics autonomy

StageSeries A

Sense Photonics produces LiDAR and 3D sensor solutions for the Autonomous Vehicle, UAV and industrial automation markets. They use a proprietary method called Micro Transfer Printing (MTP) to pick up vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) from a wafer and ‘prints’ them onto a flexible substrate with conducting lines etched into it. This enables Sense Photonics to produce a cost-effective LiDAR solution that is more accurate and reliable in all conditions.
