About the Company
Gaia AI is an MIT & Harvard startup using drones, LiDAR, and computer vision to collect high-quality biomass data in forests, helping land owners, project developers, and investors understand the carbon stock and timber content of their land. By measuring the carbon content of a forest with high accuracy, the company gives carbon credit buyers confidence that their credit was backed by a ton of carbon sequestered, and thus creates trust in and helps unlock the carbon credit market.
About the Solution
Gaia AI applies perception AI similar to that used in autonomous vehicles to accurately and automatically process LiDAR and camera data on forests. By combining the most advanced sensor technologies with perception AI, the company is able to offer greatly improved measurement accuracy at a lower cost than current manual solutions.
