We are a series-A startup building perception systems for autonomy. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, funded by NEA, and our core team includes faculty entrepreneurs (Stanford) and industry veterans (Uber, Apple, Amazon Lab126, Rohde & Schwarz), who have successfully shepherded signal processing and machine learning innovations to large-scale software for location improvement and safety at Uber, led the development of state-of-the-art computer vision technologies that shipped over millions of Amazon devices, and delivered zero-to-one product experiences at Uber and Box. Our core product grew out of 5+ years of university R&D by our co-founders. You can find out more about us by visiting our website.
