Mirada has invented an ultra low cost, high performance laser beam steering technology based on microfluidics. The
company is now raising funds to make this discovery the cornerstone of an electronic vision system that enables the
autonomous future.

THE PROBLEM
There is the potential for massive growth in autonomous systems, whether it be drones, delivery robots, or autonomous
vehicles. The sensors that give these systems their ability to see the world around them are expensive, bulky and
unattractive, or lack the performance to deliver the level of safety that the public and governments demand. Our
innovation breaks this bottleneck, creating eyes for automation.
THE SOLUTION
We will deliver a volume scalable electronic vision system. Our breakthrough miro-fluidic beam steering technol-
ogy enables a new low cost architecture for autonomous vision. The operating principle for this system is Light Dis-
tance and Ranging (LiDAR). Our technology enables a LiDAR system which can reach ...

ogy enables a new low cost architecture for autonomous vision. The operating principle for this system is Light Dis-
tance and Ranging (LiDAR). Our technology enables a LiDAR system which can reach new levels of cost/performance
through optimal light sources and signal algorithms.
THE OPPORTUNITY
Today’s commercial LiDAR systems cost more than $5,000. Our solution enables a Mirada LiDAR system at sub-$200,
driving adoption in emerging autonomous systems in transportation, UAVs and robotics.
COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND MODEL
The foundational advantage of Mirada comes from this protectable, unique, beam steering technology, brought to
market by an experienced team of industry veterans.
THE TEAM
Mirada’s CEO, Andrew Miner, Ph.D., is a seasoned startup leader who has built innovative products and companies
over the last 17 years. His work includes delivering products to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers worldwide.
Head of Technology, Evgeny Morozov, Ph.D., is an expert in photonic systems and microelectronics, and leads the
transformation of our breakthrough into a compelling product.
THE PROMISE AND INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
The firm is raising seed funding with which we will push the limits of the core technology and build a demonstration
vehicle, guided by our customer interactions. Mirada will be positioned as a key player in the coming autonomous
revolution while delivering attractive potential returns.
