The cross-licensing relationship with RoboSense encompasses a broad range of 360° surround-view LiDAR sensors, by which Velodyne said will be mutually beneficial for the existing and future patents of both companies. Velodyne and RoboSense have also agreed to dismiss all the current legal proceedings in the U.S and China that exist between the two companies.

Meanwhile, Velodyne will sell its Alpha Prime LiDAR sensors for autonomous applications with Baidu via Apollo program, an open-source autonomous vehicle software platform. Baidu has been a strategic investor in Velodyne since 2016. Baidu and Velodyne share a strong commitment to advancing autonomy and safety on roadways.

“Velodyne greatly values our relationship with Baidu, a strategic business partner and investor, and we are deeply committed to our combined work in the Chinese market,” said Wei Weng, Executive Director of Asia, Velodyne Lidar. “They are a trailblazer of intelligent driving technology and deployment, and their accomplishments and influence span global markets. Alpha Prime provides safe, efficient navigation for autonomous vehicles.”
