Cron AI and lidar provider Innoviz Technologies aim to deliver a deep learning-enabled perception solution for 3D point cloud data on the sensing edge.
Adaptive 3D edge perception platform company Cron AI and lidar sensor manufacturer Innoviz Technologies are collaborating on a deep learning enabled perception solution targeted at the intelligent transport systems, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and smart city markets.
The new partnership seeks to deliver a lidar-based adaptive perception solution for 3D point cloud data on the sensing edge.
According to the partners, SenseEdge, a platform designed to bridge the gap between complex 3D sensing dynamics and real-world applications, will leverage InnovizOne features to make better use of its sensor and scanning resources. InnovizOne’s dense and high-resolution point cloud enables SenseEdge to provide real-time, low latency, highly accurate and reliable object metadata information that is stronger than traditional object detection and tracking.
“Our goal is to make it easier and more compelling for new industries to access the huge value of 3D point cloud processed data. With InnovizOne, we can now provide customers a perception solution using perception techniques and computing architectures best suited to processing 3D data,” said Tushar Chhabra, co-founder and CEO at Cron AI.
“This, in turn, means we can remove the layer of choices customers have been forced to make even at the early design stage.”
He continued: “Working hand-in-hand with Innoviz, we will deliver an out-of-the-box solution to customers who can now start building products with the confidence that critical decisions will be the right ones.”
With mobility and vehicle electrification accelerating at a rapid pace to meet a greener transportation future, Cron AI and Innoviz’s partnership aims to ensure that smart city, road and infrastructure operators also take a forward-looking and connected approach to delivering high-quality, real-time contextual data about objects that move and interact on roads, including vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, and other road users.

The automotive-grade, high-density InnovizOne lidar sensor and Cron AI’s ruggedised SenseEdge perception platform each deliver real-time data necessary in order for smart city and intelligent transport system applications and connected ecosystems to perform efficiently, the partners claim.
“We are continually seeking ways to reduce cost, risk and time to market for innovators such as Cron AI as we develop new use cases and applications for our lidar sensors,” added Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. “Our partnership with Cron AI will allow us to offer and deliver next-generation solutions.”
