Aeva Announces Partnership with ZF to Bring FMCW LiDAR to Automotive Production

Aeva and ZF will collaborate to bring Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) LiDAR to the automotive market. The two parties are going to leverage their expertise, combining Aeva's FMCW LiDAR technology and ZF's experience in industrialization of automotive grade sensors to accelerate mass production of 4D LiDAR technology for autonomous driving applications.

Aeva and ZF aim to bring the first automotive grade 4D LiDAR to market for autonomous driving applications. The final system is targeted as a key solution for autonomous driving applications including established truck and OEM manufacturers as well as leading mobility as a service customers.

Torsten Gollewski, Executive Vice President Autonomous Mobility Solutions at ZF, commented, “We have seen that different markets require different solutions. For L2+/L3 systems a package and cost optimized LiDAR is crucial. For applications which feature L4 and further solutions, the focus lies on range and direct velocity measurement, as edge performance is key for the virtual driver software stack.”

As part of the partnership, Aeva will be responsible for the FMCW LiDAR core sensing functionality, performance and algorithms and ZF will be responsible for industrialization of the automotive grade sensing system that meets all automotive requirements.
