Tel Aviv-based Vayyar Imaging announced today that the company has raised $109 million in a late-stage round led by Koch Disruptive Technologies.
Vayyar is a company that creates advanced, specialized sensors that use radio frequency imaging to “see” things that optical sensors (such as cameras) cannot detect. This technology allows Vayyar sensors to see through walls, around objects and even inside people in order to detect malignant tissues (for medical solutions).
Although the company has greatly expanded its scope since its launch in 2011, Vayyar is best known for its consumer product brand Walabot.
With radar-enabled technology, Walabot protects privacy by not recording audio or video, instead, it can only “see” a limited amount that it then uses to make observations about the world.
