Class 8 Truck Equipped with PlusDrive Autonomous Technology and Aeries II 4D LiDAR to be Unveiled at CES 2023


Aeva® (NYSE: AEVA), a leader in next-generation sensing and perception systems, and Plus, a global provider of autonomous driving solutions, today announced the unveiling of a design for the next generation PlusDrive highly automated driving solution integrated with Aeva’s Aeries™ II 4D LiDAR™ sensor. The truck will be unveiled in Aeva’s booth at CES 2023 (#6001, LVCC – West Hall).


 

“Aeva’s 4D LiDAR provides Plus’s state-of-the-art long range perception with valuable instant velocity detection which will help expand the capabilities of our highly automated trucks,” said Tim Daly, Chief Architect and Co-founder of Plus. “We look forward to furthering our partnership with Aeva and demonstrating our latest vehicle design equipped with Aeries II at CES as we ramp up our global deployment of highly automated trucks.”


Aeva and Plus have been collaborating since 2019 to equip and validate Plus’s autonomous trucking solutions with Aeva’s Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) 4D LiDAR. Today’s announcement builds on the partnership that was announced in 2021 where Plus will use Aeva’s 4D LiDAR sensors to augment the long-range perception system in Plus’s automated driving products.

Because heavy duty trucks take much longer to stop than passenger cars, they need to detect safety-critical objects, place them in lanes, and assign an accurate velocity at very long ranges. Aeva’s high performance 4D LiDAR senses precise velocity and position for each point which helps Plus trucks sense their environment clearly at long ranges, shorten response time in safety-critical situations, and address edge cases such as objects that traditional 3D LiDAR and other sensors on the vehicle may miss.

“Today’s announcement is a milestone in our partnership which gives Plus access to the unparalleled performance of our Aeries II 4D LiDAR sensor,” said Mina Rezk, Co-founder and CTO at Aeva. “Plus is deploying safe automated commercial vehicle technology and we are pleased to work with them on the design for their next generation production vehicles.”
