Program Sponsor

Phantom Intelligence reduces collisions by making reliable obstacle detection systems affordable to all vehicles. Phantom Intelligence’ collision warning sensor technology can be trusted where other sensors fail. Compact, low-cost and without moving parts, LIDAR sensors powered by Phantom Intelligence meet stringent environmental and security requirements to provide 360-degree awareness. Phantom Intelligence provides crucial signal processing algorithms that enhance the range and reliability of LIDAR (laser-based) obstacle detection devices. We currently showcase this technology within solid-state, low to medium resolution "flash" LIDAR sensors, used for collision warning applications. Our sensors provide accurate detection of vehicles, pedestrians and other targets under conditions where camera-based systems would fail (low-light, camera saturation, low-contrast, obscurants such as rain or snow etc.) and where radar systems would be less efficient (cluttered environments, "soft" obstacles).
