About us

Autorient Technologies AS is a Norwegian high-tech start-up by a team of individuals coming from the well-known Norwegian company SensoNor. SensoNor is mainly known as a pioneering and successful company within solid-state semiconductor sensors (MEMS) for the automotive and the avionics industry. Together our team has more than 150 years with experience within MEMS inertia- and pressure sensors and long wave IR imaging chips, ASICs and microelectronics and sensor control systems, for numerous of applications where MEMS replaces old technology and makes previous impossible missions to become possible.

Autorient focus to establish a wide selection of standard products for professional OEM customers within positioning and control of autonomous- and semi-autonomous systems and operations. Autorient’s products will all include unique proprietary MEMS sensors with capabilities not offered in the open component market. Such capabilities are needed due to the many regulations, high accuracy, and agility for centimeter and millimeter operations, and the security and safety required within these emerging applications. IoT and AI will be generic characteristics of our products and in that context support multi-task and multi-unit operations, online and linked capabilities and related self-learning algorithms. In the same way as the human senses are the resources for the “man”, sensors are the absolute means for machines and operations to become autonomous.

The key for any success within the future industrial market is the understanding of the rise of the autonomous economy; the fourth industrial revolution. In a simple way it can be said to involve the “brain to machine” transfer. Industry within this fourth revolution is all sorts of applications where today the human brain is involved doing “work”.

After the start-up phase developing our first MEMS gyro sensor and establishing the architecture, concepts, software- and hardware-platforms including key components for our system products, we are now close to launching our first product to the market.
