About the Company: Algolux delivers computer vision and image optimization solutions for ADAS and driverless vehicles that solve the mission-critical issue of safety. It employs computational imaging to create algorithms that consider the camera to be a component of the broader perception stack. For object detection, imaging, and geometric estimation, this leads to the resolution of difficult circumstances such as poor light, low contrast, and obstructions. Furthermore, employing physical camera models minimizes the amount of training data required. Algolux is an award-winning AI software company delivering the industry’s most robust and scalable perception for all conditions, addressing both existing cameras and new designs through cloud-based tools and embedded software.
