Overview

Kudan is a global deep technology company developing commercial artificial perception algorithms based on simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) since its founding in 2011. Kudan’s technology currently enables solutions for its partners in automotive, robotics, drone/UAV, mapping and surveying and XR (augmented reality/virtual reality).

In collaboration with Texas Instruments, Kudan delivers unparalleled visual SLAM performance on the Jacinto™ 7 processors for a broad range of applications, including robotics and autonomous vehicles.

Visual SLAM can achieve typically required accuracy in automotive and robotics with efficient use of memory and computing resources for mission critical real-time applications. Utilizing the camera as the primary sensor, the software creates a point cloud map of the environment, and accurately tracks the position and pose of a device.
