The company hopes the launch will open the door to tap into additional markets such as industrial automation, security and surveillance
LiDAR sensing solutions provider, Innoviz Technologies, has announced the commercial launch of the InnovizPro stand-alone, solid-state, MEMS-based scanning LiDAR solution.
The product won an award in the CES 2018 awards in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category. Live demonstrations can be seen at the electronics show in Las Vegas, which runs until 12 January.
InnovizPro allows Innoviz’s partners in the automotive industry to test and develop the next generation of autonomous driving programs reliably and affordably. Moreover, the current availability of InnovizPro opens the door for Innoviz to tap into additional markets, including industrial automation, security and surveillance, logistics and others.
The product’s high frame rate, combined with its high angular resolution and wide field of view, enables it to create a dense 3D point cloud with high accuracy. Meanwhile, it has a detection range of up to 150m.
InnovizPro claims that these features combined enable it to deliver superior accuracy even in the dark of night, cases of bright sunlight or quickly changing weather, and when the vehicle is travelling at highway speeds.
“InnovizPro provides immediate accessibility to our advanced LiDAR technology and marks a giant leap forward for the entire autonomous vehicle market,” said Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz, which is headquartered in Israel. “We are addressing a major need for high-resolution scanning technology at lower cost, with no minimum order required.”
Founded in early 2016 and backed by US$82 million in funding, Innoviz is one of the first LiDAR providers to deliver a complete product to market. It has signed strategic partnerships to manufacture as well as integrate its LiDAR into the autonomous driving systems of market leaders and tier-1 suppliers including Aptiv (Delphi Automotive) and Magna International.
Innoviz will continue to improve upon its scanning performance with the introduction of InnovizOne, the company’s built-in, automotive grade LiDAR for levels 3-5 autonomous driving, which will be available in 2019.
Live demonstrations of InnovizPro, as well as samples of InnovizOne, are on display at the 2018 CES conference in the Smart Cities Hall, Tech East, Westgate, Booth 2101.
