Environmental understanding which goes beyond the perception of sensors.

We offer comprehensive products as well as development and consulting services around software and algorithmic procedures for autonomous driving.

Our portfolio ranges from system design and software development to final validation.

Our Products

Safety and Reliable Critical Software Applications

LFT offers SW applications for L2+ systems up to autonomous driving L5 with filtering of artifacts as well as performance assurance of LiDAR sensors especially in bad weather conditions. Rule-based LiDAR algorithms provide the intelligence of the sensor technology (LiDAR Perception).

Another focus is the rule-based sensor data fusion of features and objects for the safety-critical safeguarding of function and performance of the perception systems of various platforms.

Environment Perception

The LFT product environment perception is a complete system for the representation of the environment and its transfer of a model to the vehicle drive control system.

It contains appropriate sensor technology HW (e.g. LiDAR, camera, radar), perception (e.g. AI and deterministic) software and the necessary security fusion, which makes vehicle certification (and thus safety) possible.

Reference System

The LFT reference system is used to obtain raw data for the development and validation of processing chains and series sensor technology.

The reference system places very high demands on the accuracy of the superimposition of the various sensors (calibration) and the time synchronicity.

Expert Services

Of course, technology requires individual customer adaptation and validation, i.e. testing the suitability of a software in relation to its intended use.

Furthermore, LFT offers simulations and models for the comparison, design and optimization of LiDAR sensors.

LFT accompanies the customers in the design phase, the implementation as well as in the corresponding analytical verification according to the standards of ISO/PAS 21448 (SOTIF) & ISO 26262.

Our mission is pilot-safe automated driving

"Autonomous driving must become as safe as flying. We transfer the understanding of safety, innovation and networked thinking from the aviation industry to the automobile of the future.

The way to get there is to safeguard the performance of today's driver assistance systems supplemented by LiDAR technology.

On this basis, we develop performance assurance and safety-critical systems and applications in order to make future mobility safer, more reliable and more resource-efficient as a pioneer."

Our Strengths

The airplane is the safest means of transport in the world. LFT has decades of experience in aviation. We are the first to transfer this expertise to the roads. This way, LFT is creating the conditions for autonomous driving to become as safe as flying.

Combination of many years of industry expertise and Start-Up agility

LFT combines two apparently contradictory properties:

Decades of industry expertise on the one hand, start-up agility and curiosity on the other.

The motto is: New thinking is best achieved when it is based on sound knowledge and many years of experience.

Our Corporate Story

Dynamic and Experienced

The expert company LAKE FUSION Technologies GmbH (LFT) was founded in 2018 in Markdorf (Baden-Württemberg) by former employees of the Airbus Group. The 3-member management team and the growing team have decades of know-how in complete systems for environmental perception in aviation.

In light of this range of experience it is about the software development and implementation from air to road.

The goal: Real, autonomous driving.

We are striving to transfer the high safety standards from aviation to autonomous driving. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 1.3 million people die in road traffic every year. Many millions more are injured. Our technology helps to prevent accidents caused by driving too fast, reacting too slowly or being inattentive, for example, and thus to save lives and maintain the health of millions of people.

LFT, a new company with decades of experience, is the leading supplier in this field as Trailblazer:
