TetraVue’s Disruptive Technology to Enable Bosch Automated Systems

TetraVue’s technology helps to address the challenges associated with automated vehicles encountering unexpected and dangerous obstacles during operation. Bosch is dedicated to enhancing the development of the automated car industry, and the company says TetraVue’s technology can support Bosch in its quest to be a leader in defining the future of this emerging market segment. “TetraVue appears unparalleled to other existing technologies in the three-dimensional flash LIDAR space. We see its technology as being key to the enhancement and development of the automated car industry, which will be the future of transportation as we know it,” said Bosch Ventures Managing Director Luis Llovera.

“Light Slicer” Technology

TetraVue’s core technology differentiation is its patented “light slicer” technology, which uses time and distance measurements in order to find optical intensities using standard CMOS sensors. The company’s approach yields many benefits, including higher reliability to meet automotive requirements, low latency and ability to produce ultra-high resolution images for a wider range of distances at a lower cost, according to Bosch.
