【CES 2019】LiDAR and Sensing Technologies for Autonomous Driving

Autonomous driving is one of the featured technologies at CES 2019. Automobile manufacturers, LiDAR developers as well as sensing components providers have all prepared to join the high profile event with their cutting-edge technologies. LEDinside has selected some noticeable exhibitors who are showcasing the next generation technology for autonomous driving applications.

Velodyne Lidar
Velodyne continues to present new products for CES 2019. Last week the company released that it will demonstrate Velodyne Alpha Puck™ and Velodyne Velarray™, sensors made for autonomous driving and advanced vehicle safety at highway speeds.

Just before the event, Velodyne presented the VelaDome™, a compact embeddable LiDAR that provides an ultra-wide 180° x 180° image for near-object avoidance and Vella™, software that establishes its directional view Velarray™ lidar sensor as an integral component for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Quanergy
Quanergy will showcase several of its advanced LiDAR applications. The company said it is going to debut the 6 WATCH Virtual Surveillance Partner (VSP) in the U.S. at the event. The VSP is a security system that uses dual LiDAR and video technology along with data analytics to alert public safety officers to out-of-sight security threats and offers force multiplier communication to fellow first responders. The system, which will be mounted on a 2019 Dodge Charger, will be powered by a combination of Quanergy’s M8 and S3 LiDAR sensors.

SOS LAB
SOS LAB, a South Korean startup who develops hybrid LiDAR for self-driving cars, is going to introduce its 3D LiDAR sensor at CES 2019. In addition to their 3D hybrid LiDAR (SL-1) for autonomous vehicles, SOS LAB will display their 2D scanning LiDAR (GL-3) for auto-guided vehicles and drones, and their 2D solid-state LiDAR (TL-3), used in security systems to detect near-field (5-10m) obstacles.

The company has received US$ 6 million funding in September 2018 and is developing solid-state LiDAR while preparing mass production of its hybrid LiDAR scanner in 2019.

Innoviz
Innoviz is exhibiting at CES 2019 with its InnovizOne, an automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR featured in this year's program as a winner of the 2019 CES® "Best of Innovation" award. It is also exhibiting the InnovizPro.

Meanwhile, Innoviz announced its partnership with HARMAN International, a subsidiary of Samsung. Innoviz noted that the collaboration helps to make Innoviz's solid-state LiDAR solutions available to OEMs globally. Innoviz's LiDAR will enhance HARMAN's existing ADAS and Automated Driving initiatives, helping deliver superior driver assist features today and Levels 3-5 automation tomorrow.
