White Raven is an AI-based visual positioning software company specialized in classification and-real time analysis of visual signals generated by various sensors.
We trains proprietary Deep Learning models with street-level imagery feeds to create a system that recognizes buildings and landmarks and uses these to accurately locate the camera, replacing / augmenting GPS or other positioning systems with a very high level of accuracy.
Humans navigate, locate and drive using their eyes. Visible light includes all the information needed to locate a car and understand its surroundings and includes information not visible to LIDAR or radar. We’ve been painting buildings and signs for thousands of years – effectively encoding location information that is only visible by… looking.
Visual positioning is a fast, cheap method to locate yourself in a given environment – either relatively (to the environment) or absolutely (in a coordinate system) it has the added benefit of direct interaction with the imagery, supporting driver and passenger user experiences like heads-up-displays.
