3D Imaging Sensor Company Vayyar Raises $109 Million
Vayyar develops 3D imaging sensors that can see through human tissue, most man-made surfaces, and barriers such as smoke and steam using low-power radio wave technology
The company is working towards opening offices in both Jerusalem and the northern Israeli city of Haifa in the coming weeks that will employ dozens of people, Vayyar CEO Raviv Melamed said in a Wednesday interview with Calcalist.
In January, the company unveiled its fall detection system that automatically calls the user’s emergency contact once a fall is detected. The sensor’s stationary placement, meant to be hung on a wall, means users do not need to wear special gear or make any deliberate movement in order to get emergency assistance.
