Vayyar Imaging has raised $45m to continue the development of its wireless 3D imaging sensor technology.
The Israeli company has so far raised $79m for the sensor which create a 3D image of everything happening in realtime without the use of a camera but using ultrawideband (UWB) radio signals instead. These sensors can see through solid objects, map large areas and can be used in privacy-sensitive locations where optics cannot, with applications in smart home, automotive, retail, robotics, medical, construction, agriculture and more.
“Our 3D imaging sensors transform elder care, autonomous vehicles, medical, agriculture, and retail by bringing innovative and exciting solutions to these markets," said Raviv Melamed, co-founder, CEO, and Chairman of Vayyar. "It is amazing to see how the ability to look into objects can help humanity in so many ways. We currently work in collaboration with industry-leading companies to create applications that address some of their toughest challenges. The target of this round is to allow us to grow even faster than before.”
Vayyar will demonstrate its latest automotive and smart home sensors, which provide 360 indoor and outdoor sensing, at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month
