Outsight’s 3D Semantic Camera will be tested on drones, airplanes, other vehicles.

Safran and Outsight are partnering on autonomous mobility technologies and will put Outsight’s 3D Semantic Camera, unveiled in September 2019, on off-road vehicles, drones, and aircraft during taxiing. The 3D Semantic Camera combines software and hardware to provide innovations such as remote material identification with comprehensive real-time 3D data processing.

Outsight solutions allow autonomous vehicles to simultaneously perceive and understand their environment in 3D. These new capabilities are part of Safran's strategy in the automation of vehicles and smart-machines.

"Safran is currently at the forefront in the field of platform empowerment. This agreement allows our two companies to pool their skills to integrate technological bricks developed by Outsight into Safran products," said Martin Sion, president of Safran Electronics & Defense.

"We were impressed by Safran's technological know-how and vision in areas adjacent to ours, including 3D laser perception and automation. Their ability to integrate our 3D Semantic Camera into their solutions is an undeniable asset," said Raul Bravo, co-founder and president of Outsight.

Outsight’s engineers are based in Paris, Helsinki, and San Francisco.
