Israeli startup TriEye has secured $17 million in funding to bring to market its HD shortwave-IR (SWIR) camera that will allow advanced driver-assistance systems (ADASs) and autonomous vehicles to achieve vision capabilities in adverse and challenging low-light conditions.

TriEye’s sensing technology is designed to see in common conditions of poor visibility — such as adverse weather, fog, dust, or nighttime darkness — to help save lives on the road. 

Similar to a digital camera, TriEye's SWIR technology is CMOS-based, which enables the scalable mass-production of SWIR sensors. The defense and aerospace industries have previously addressed the low-visibility challenge by using InGaAs-based SWIR cameras; however, such cameras have been too expensive for mass-market applications. 

The TriEye camera will be windshield mountable and initial samples are expected to enter the market in 2020.
