• Protecting humans through ubiquitous computer vision technology.

     

    Now looking for talented technical and science cofounders.

  • Why xMotion?

    Computer vision technology is one of the most promising fields in artificial intelligence. It is now being used in many areas such as video surveillance and medical image analysis. The overall market is expected to grow from 3 billion USD today, to approximately 26 billion USD in 2025.

     

    One new hot trend is on-the-edge embedded computer vision. There are many opportunities in this field right now. In particular, one promising market segment is in-vehicle on-board computer vision. From passenger car safety, to self-driving vehicle fleet operations, the use cases are numerous and fascinating. And the market opportunity is really BIG.

     

    There is no main player today so there's plenty of room for us to grow and to successfully take the leadership. After rapidly nailing the self-driving vehicle niche, we can later expand to other related market segments such as in-vehicle public transportation video-surveillance, drone & robot vision, as well as autonomous flying taxis and even space exploration! So basically, our market potential is worth several billions of dollars.

     

    To succeed this ambitious project, I am looking for one or two talented lead technical and science cofounder(s), able to develop such a solution with me, and to help me build a team of super bright engineers and scientists.

    The technical challenges for this project

    • Real-time embedded computer vision with ultra-low power consumption.
    • Proposing a software + hardware full-stack solution.
    • Accessing to enough quality training datasets.
    • Challenging detection use cases such as cigarette smoke, graffiti, wrong posture, violence.
    • Lighting condition changes during the day.
    • Continuous learning in an on-the-edge embedded environment.
    • Data communication and cybersecurity.
    • Privacy management.
    • Complex logistics for in-vehicle solution installation, configuration, maintenance.

    How are we going to train, validate and test our computer vision models?

    As most A.I. development company with a B2B business model, we will build our technology by working with our customers datasets. We will therefore need to work with as many customers as possible.

    How are we going to succeed?

    • By building the right team with the right skills and the right ambition.
    • By focusing on very specific market segments with much business potential.
    • By deeply listening to our customers needs.
    • By progressing fast through venture capital funding.
    • By benefiting from public funds and incentives for R&D.
    • By partnering with the best universities and tech labs.
    • By including insightful and experienced mentors on our board.

    The perfect timing

    • I've already validated the need for such a solution with several world leading customers and I'm discussing with some of them for future project development. The French administration wishes to offer high security standards for the 2024 Paris Olympics Games.
    • This is a brand new and promisingly very large market. There is therefore plenty of room for us to grow and take the lead on new market segments such a smart video-surveillance for fleets of vehicles, for passenger cars and for drones and robots.
    • There are much private and public fundings available today for startups like ours.

    Our goal, plan and roadmap

    Our goal is to become leader at embedded computer vision technology for the video security market.
