SiLC and Varroc Lighting Systems to Demonstrate LiDAR Integrated Headlamp at CES 2020

SiLC Technologies, the provider of integrated single-chip FMCW LiDAR solutions, and vehicle lighting supplier Varroc Lighting Systems announced that they will join force to demonstrate a LiDAR integration into a production automotive headlamp at CES 2020.

The Varroc Lighting Systems headlamp combines its LED design and four of SiLC's silicon photonics FMCW vision chips providing a full 20 x 80-degree field of view (FOV) per headlamp.

According to SiLC, its compact LiDAR chip architecture can be inconspicuously embedded anywhere on a vehicle while the 4D+ Vision Chip enables integration of required functionality, such as a coherent light source and optical signal processing, allowing additional information to be extracted from the returning photons before their conversion to electrons. It also detect low reflectance object beyond 200 meters.

In addition, SiLC's vision sensor can detect height, width, distance, reflectivity, velocity, and light polarization of objects. The coherent interferometric sensing approach improves achievable accuracy by orders of magnitude over existing technologies.

Before the partnership of SiLC and Varroc Lighting Systems, German LiDAR company Blickfeld also teamed up with Koito to build LiDAR integrated headlamp in May 2019.
