ADASENS Automotive GmbH was founded nearby Lindau (Lake Constance/Bodensee) within the south German “Silicon Valley” of ADAS. 2006 the site was selected in order to participate and contribute to the existing eco-system in Lindau/Weißensberg with the focus to be close to partners and customers.
ADASENS was founded in 2006 as a subsidiary of OMRON Automotive Deutschland with the purpose to develop camera based machine vision algorithms for the OMRON HRDC imager chip, aiming for the worldwide automotive market.
In 2009 ADASENS status was changed as OMRON and Ficosa launched a Joint Venture. The focus was to develop, produce and market camera based ADAS Systems as a TIER1 supplier. ADASENS also developed a state-of-the-art Surround View functionality with German OEMs.
From 2010 on, after OMRON's withdrawal of the automotive ADAS market, ADASENS operated as an 100 % subsidiary of Ficosa.
The prime purpose was to develop ADAS basis know-how for Ficosas systems accompanied by additional customer activities in the US and EU. ADASENS brought several series development projects to life i.e. automotive parking camera and traffic sign recognition software. ADASENS achieved ISO9001 certification in 2015.
In April 2016 Ficosa completed the acquisition of ADASENS, taking over full ownership of the company. Under Ficosa’s control, ADASENS will play a decisive role in key technology for the research and development of new image recognition-technology that will lead to a safer and more autonomous driving environment.
