Aeva 4D LiDAR Provides Faster and More Reliable Detection of Obstacles and Hazards Surrounding Train Tracks to Enable Safe Automation

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 17, 2024 – Aeva® (NYSE: AEVA), a leader in next-generation sensing and perception systems, today announced that the sector initiative Digitale Schiene Deutschland has selected Aeva’s 4D LiDAR technology to support state-of-the-art perception and localization in the AutomatedTrain project. The Digitale Schiene Deutschland initiative is managed by DB InfraGO AG, part of Germany’s national railway operator Deutsche Bahn.

The AutomatedTrain project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action with collaboration from ten partners, including Siemens Mobility and Bosch Engineering, aims to create and trial driverless, fully automated passenger train dispatch and parking functionality by 2026. To achieve this goal, two regional trains will be equipped with smart sensor technologies, including LiDAR, to enable the detection of their surroundings for full automation and reaction to obstacles, similar to how self-driving cars operate.

“Aeva’s high resolution LiDAR sensor combined with a compact form factor and advanced technology readiness level were in combination the reason for us to decide using Aeva for the AutomatedTrain project,” said Dr. Christian Hauswald, Technical Project Lead of AutomatedTrain at Digitale Schiene Deutschland. “We are using the best available technologies and are excited to have Aeva as a supplier in this project because they share our vision for fully automated trains.”

Aeva’s Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) 4D LiDAR sensors provide long-range performance combined with high resolution, plus the ability to instantly detect velocity. Velocity detection allows trains to instantly see what’s moving and what isn’t around the tracks, providing faster and more reliable detection of potential obstacles and hazards. In addition, Aeva’s unique localization capabilities allow for the real-time estimation of a train’s motion with six degrees of freedom, providing accurate positioning in areas where GPS signals may be unreliable, including tunnels and urban canyons created by tall buildings.

“Digitale Schiene Deutschland and its partners are undertaking massive transformation to modernize the rail industry and will be setting the standard for automated train operations across Europe,” said Jakub Zimny, Senior Manager of Business Development at Aeva. “We are excited to collaborate with them and provide next-generation sensing and perception technologies to create a safe and reliable platform that can scale to meet the needs of the entire industry.”
