DETROIT — General Motors said on Monday that it had acquired a company that specializes in laser-imaging technology geared toward enhancing the development of autonomous vehicles.
G.M., the nation’s largest automaker, said it had bought Strobe, a three-year-old company based in Pasadena, Calif., and will fold its operations into Cruise Automation, a subsidiary dedicated to self-driving technology.
The deal gives G.M. in-house engineering expertise in the development of so-called lidar sensors that create high-definition images for vehicles operated by computers.
