Phantom Intelligence at a Glance

Phantom Intelligence: Our Vision and Story

We want, among other things, to eliminate preventable road-related deaths. Our mission is to reduce collisions by making driver-assistance systems more reliable and affordable. We therefore improve the reliability of autonomous vehicles for passengers and vulnerable road users (VRUs). This reduces the level of anxiety while on the road and shortens driving times. Thanks to our background in systems integration and signal processing, we originally were called upon to paint a portrait of future technological breakthroughs in the area of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). With this understanding of market needs and knowing that we could contribute with our expertise, Phantom Intelligence was born in 2011.
