Startup Watch: Blackmore

A startup called Blackmore just raised a few million dollars to miniaturize sensors for autonomous vehicles.

A few interesting points about Blackmore:

  1. They want to embed lidar in the grill of a car. This seems like a difficult vantage point, since the sensor won’t have a 360-degree view of the environment.
  2. They plan to deliver prototypes next summer.
  3. Based on their website, they seem to target two markets: autonomous vehicles and the military.
  4. They’re based in Bozeman, Montana, which is a great town, but hardly a tech hub. Given the cost of housing in Silicon Valley, though, I’m tempted to apply for a job there right now.
