TriEye in Israel has developed a laser-illuminated short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging system for automotive and robotics applications.

It worked with Coherent in the US to combine its CMOS-based spectrum enhanced detection and ranging (SEDAR) sensor platform with Coherent’s 1375 nm edge-emitting SWIR semiconductor laser. This will enable autonomous robots to operate around the clock in any lighting conditions and move seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.

This is the first system of its kind that is able to reach lower cost points while achieving very high performance over a wide range of environmental conditions, says the company. This can drive wide deployment in applications such as front and rear cameras in cars as well as vision systems in industrial and autonomous robots.

The system was on show at Laser World of Photonics in Munich, Germany, this week.

“This new solution combines best-in-class SWIR imaging and laser illumination technologies that will enable next-generation cameras to provide images through rain or fog, and in any lighting condition, from broad daylight to total darkness at night,” said Dr. Sanjai Parthasarathi, Chief Marketing Officer at Coherent. “Both technologies are produced leveraging high-volume manufacturing platforms that will enable them to achieve the economies of scale required to penetrate markets in automotive and robotics.”

“We are happy to collaborate with a global leader in semiconductor lasers and to establish an ecosystem that the automotive and industrial robotics industries can rely on to build next-generation solutions,” said Avi Bakal, CEO and co-founder of TriEye. “This is the next step in the evolution of our technology innovation, which will enable mass-market applications. Our collaboration will allow us to continue revolutionizing sensing capabilities and machine vision by allowing the incorporation of SWIR technology into a greater number of emerging applications.”;
