StradVision, an AI-based perception processing technology company for Autonomous Vehicles and ADAS, and technology company ZF Group (ZF) have announced the appointment of ZF’s Raj Vazirani to StradVision’s board of directors.
Vazirani brings 20 years of experience within the ADAS and autonomous driving space, including prior background in the Telecom industry. His current role at ZF is director of Radar, Camera Products, Electronics Engineering and Computer Vision Architecture – where he leads engineering of ADAS Sensors and Central Hardware development. His education background includes a Bachelor in Electronics Engineering from Mumbai University and attending the Ashridge Executive Management Program at INSEAD Business School.
“I am excited to join the board of StradVision as we work together to further develop our perception expertise, in particular for higher levels of L3 and L4 autonomy, to provide various mobility solutions,” said Vazirani. “We look forward to future growth in the ADAS and AD space through world class AI-based perception technology.”
Vazirani’s new board appointment also elevates the recently established partnership between StradVision and ZF to accelerate the future of Autonomous Driving perception technology, which saw ZF acquire a 6 percent stake in StradVision to expand the portfolio of autonomous driving perception software, the companies say. In addition, the partnership has strengthened ZF’s global ecosystem for automated driving Level 3 and Level 4 systems.
“Our collaboration and strategic relationship with ZF have proven very beneficial as we both continue high ambitions for leading the perception space as well as the autonomous driving market,” said Junhwan Kim, CEO at StradVision. “We’re honored to have Raj Vazirani join our StradVision board, and we look forward to his collaboration, leadership and expertise as we continue to grow our global efforts.”
