U.S.-based Innovasonic are partnering with the CEA-LETI and CEA-LIST institutes to open a wholly-owned subsidiary in France.
The company chose to work with CEA Tech institutes to leverage their expertise in thin-layer piezoelectric material and their technologies in applied research in microelectronics and nanotechnology. Dr. Boris Kobrin, Founder and CEO of Innovasonic said, “Innovasonic addresses lidar, automotive cameras, and other applications that could benefit from the solution’s self-cleaning capabilities.”
“CEA-LETI’s robotics and piezoelectronics expertise fits right in with our current development efforts to design a new and disruptive sensor cleaning technology for lidars,” said Julian Zegelman, Co-Founder and CBO of Innovasonic. “Establishing a subsidiary in France close to numerous European automakers headquarters also benefits us, as we start discussions with potential commercial partners early in our development cycle.”
