Denso International America, Inc. has invested in TriLumina Corp., a semiconductor laser technology company that focuses on providing light sources for LiDAR and interior illumination products. Denso says it is looking to speed up the adoption of LiDAR and driver monitoring technologies in Advanced Driver Assistance systems, which are key technologies used in autonomous vehicles. This strategic investment enables TriLumina to gain broader access to the automotive market.

TriLumina is targeting LiDAR and DMS in the Advance Driver Assistance System, as well as depth sensing and gesture control for the industrial robotics, commercial and consumer electronics markets.
