To be adopted in industry and on the roads, autonomous vehicles need to be perceptive and safe. What technologies will enable self-driving cars, forklifts, and drones to see and communicate accurately?
5D Robotics Inc. says it has the answer. Last month, it acquired Time Domain for its expertise in radio and radar sensors.
Carlsbad, Calif.-based 5D Robotics has developed guidance and positioning technologies used in 30 autonomous vehicles and robots. Its Behavior Engine is a reusable software suite, and its Adaptive Navigation Engine combines inputs from multiple sensor types.
“5D is at the unique intersection of accurate positioning and reliable behavior,” said David Bruemmer, CEO and founder of 5D Robotics. “We initially focused on behavior, but if you don’t have reliable positioning, you don’t have a functioning system.”
