Our Mission

Next level LiDAR
for next level driving

Making autonomous transportation happen

Self-driving cars used to be science fiction. But already today, they redefine the way we move, how we transport goods, and the way we live together. SCANTINEL PHOTONICS develops LiDAR technologies that show autonomous vehicles their way. We believe that they will soon become as much a part of our lives as laptop computers and smartphones.

Bringing self driving technology to people and markets

It is our aim that many people benefit from the advantages of autonomous driving. At SCANTINEL PHOTONICS, a high-profile team of experts is working to make reliable LiDAR sensor technology not only possible, but also marketable. We cooperate closely with vehicle manufacturers and their technology partners in order to precisely meet their requirements.
