Canadian flash LiDAR builder LeddarTech has offered its LiDAR solutions to autonomous shuttle bus service providers COAST and May Mobility. It also supported autonomous machine operation with its collaboration with the Flodraulic Group. Meanwhile, the company’s LiDAR product was recently granted with CES 2020 Innovation Award.

Blickfeld from Germany announced its partnership with automotive lighting provider Koito to develop a LiDAR sensor that can be integrated into headlights. According to Blickfeld, its silicon MEMS mirror enables small size and cost effective LiDARs. The company also won CES 2020 Innovation Award with its LiDAR product, Blickfeld Cube.

Isreal-based Innoviz began partnership with Magna to provide LiDAR to the BMW Group in 2018 and expanded its business by opening offices in the U.S., Germany, Japan and China. The company closed its Series C funding with US$170 million in June 2019.

Pionner, who also specialized in MEMS-based LiDAR, announced its partnership with Canon in April 2019. Collaboration of the two companies aims to combine miniaturization and digital signal processing technology of Pioneer and Canon's optical technologies for LiDAR sensor development. They planned to mass produce the result in 2020.

Another Europe-based LiDAR company, XenomatiX, reported its plan to develop LiDAR mounted in windshield with AGC, a functional glass supplier.

Solid state LiDARs are featured with smaller size and simple structure compared to mechanical LiDARs, enabling the manufacturers to integrate the sensors with other components such as light and windows. The combination can further simply the structure of autonomous vehicles in the future.

LEDinside will release the new report "LEDinside 2020 Infrared Sensing Application Market Trend- Mobile Sensing, LiDAR and Automotive Sensing" on January 1, 2020. Stay tuned with LEDinside or contact us for further information.
