Parallel Domain

Parallel Domain is a synthetic data platform powered by a robust procedural generation pipeline.

Parallel Domain is revolutionizing computer vision development, especially in autonomous systems.

Parallel Domain was founded in 2017 by Kevin McNamara. The company is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.


The Parallel Domain platform, composed of a suite of APIs and developer tools, enables customers to generate synthetic sensor data on-demand, providing essential performance improvements while reducing developer iteration time.


Parallel Domain's platform generates synthetic labeled data sets, simulation worlds, and controllable sensor feeds so the company can develop, train, and test their algorithms safely before putting these systems into the real word.


Parallel Domain works with perception, machine learning, data operations, and simulation teams at autonomous systems companies, from autonomous vehicles to delivery drones. Parallel Domain counts Google, Continental, Woven Planet and Toyota Research Institute as its customers. 


Parallel Domain is backed by Foundry Group, March Capital, Calibrate Ventures, Costanoa Ventures, Ubiquity Ventures, Toyota AI Ventures, and others. The company raised $30M in a Series B round on Nov 17, 2022. This brings Parallel Domain's total funding to $43.9M to date.
