Proven Leadership

Our founders have their origins in cutting-edge communications semiconductors, a technology space requiring engineering discipline, advanced modeling, simulation and metric-based verification, successfully taming high system design, certification and assurance complexity.

Self-driving is a bigger peak to climb with new challenges; over the last four years, we’ve assembled world-class experts in computer vision, machine learning, robotics, safety assurance and automotive engineering. That combination gives us unique insight and expertise to deliver workable and efficient solutions to the big science and engineering challenges now visible in self-driving. In doing so, we’re providing vital technology that will help major programs deliver safe, smart and sustainable transport to a town or city near you.
