Owl Autonomous Imaging Nets $15M in Series A Funding

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Owl Autonomous Imaging (Owl AI), a developer of monocular 3D thermal imaging and ranging solutions for automotive safety applications, has raised $15 million in Series A funding. State Farm Ventures led the round.

The foundation of the company’s technology is an adaptation of a thermal ranging solution developed to track missiles in flight traveling at over 1000 mph. Owl has developed a 3D thermal ranging camera for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles. The solid-state camera delivers high-definition thermal video with high-precision ranging for safe autonomous vehicle operation.

Owl’s monocular 3D thermal ranging modality is based on high-definition thermal imaging and computer vision algorithms. The algorithms operate in the thermal spectrum and exploit angular, temporal, and intensity data to produce ultradense point clouds and refined object classification.
