Exclusive: Autonomous vehicle vision company Oculii partners with one of China’s largest automakers
Forget flying cars - self-driving cars are the future, according to Oculii, the US start-up that is developing a newer, better way for autonomous vehicles to "see".
Its partnerships include Great Wall Motors, Baidu, and Nvidia, and it has raised more than $76 million to date. Even bigger - Oculii just landed a deal with Geely, one of China's largest automakers.
Geely intends to integrate the updated radar system into cars it makes in China, serving as the "eyes" for autonomous systems.
Oculii's disruptive AI technology will compete with lidar tech (light-emitting optical sensors), and proves to be an emerging leader in the autonomous vehicle industry.
