3D Thermal Imaging Startup Owl Autonomous Imaging Raises $15M in Series-A Round

PRNewswire: Owl Autonomous Imaging (Owl AI), a developer of patented monocular 3D thermal imaging and ranging solutions for automotive active safety systems, today announced $15M in Series A funding.

Owl has developed a patented 3D Thermal Ranging camera, the world's only solid-state camera delivering HD thermal video with high precision ranging for safe autonomous vehicle operation.


  1. Is this thermal camera effective to detect EV car?

  2. Yes - any vehicle of any type, pedestrians, bicycles, animals are all as recognizable in thermal as they are in a monochrome visual image. More so at night or in foul weather.

  3. Are they using a plenoptic camera like Adelson described? The error grows as the distance squared so for reasonably sized apertures, I would expect it to be useless beyond several meters.
