Accelerate development of autonomous industrial vehicle and robotic systems

D3 Engineering helps your team shorten development time of embedded Autonomous Systems for industrial vehicles and robotics. We create solutions for autonomous navigation, active safety, and automation. Your products will help your customers increase operational efficiencies.


  • Powerful processors performing multi-sensor fusion and real-time analytics. These deliver spatial awareness and navigation capabilities.
  • In-platform connectivity (CAN Bus, WiFi, Bluetooth) combined with external connectivity (RTLS, V2X). This provides situational awareness and decision support.
  • Onboard algorithms and analytics.

Design Services

We offer a range of product development services  for autonomous industrial applications. We can deliver full-cycle embedded system development. Or we can help your product development team with specific tasks such as processor selection, system architecture, sensor integration, and algorithm integration and optimization.

DesignCore™ Platforms

Our proven Reference Designs and Development Kits feature industry-leading digital media vision processor and millimeter wave radar sensor technology, along with real-time embedded software frameworks. Use them to guide your own development, or work with D3 to customize a DesignCore™ Platform for your system.
