Iris Automation Inc is building an AI-based air safety system that helps unpiloted aircraft see the world how pilots do. By ensuring that autonomous aircraft are able to fly safely when other systems fail, the company's technology is the critical missing piece that enables the widespread use of commercial drones, urban air mobility and more. Iris Automation is based in San Francisco and is led by a team with experience at NASA, Boeing, and Nvidia, including PhDs in computer vision. The company has secured 2 patents with 3 additional applications in review, and was recognized by the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International as the most important innovator for its 2020 XCELLENCE award.
