State Farm Ventures® joins forces to make roads safer for pedestrians and others.

State Farm Ventures is focused on supporting innovative companies and has invested in PreAct Technologies, which is developing new ways to keep passengers and pedestrians safe, primarily with improved flash LiDAR impact-sensing cameras.

The LiDAR enhanced sensors predict and measure the time to impact of a vehicle moving at various speeds with an object, a pedestrian, bicyclist, or animal.

Watch the video as Corey Schieler, Ventures Director in the Innovation Group, talks about how State Farm Ventures, State Farm Enterprise Research, PreAct, The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute and Mcity, an auto safety laboratory also at U-M, are working together to make our communities safer.
