Technological Elevation – BMW selects Innoviz solid-state MEMS lidar for production autonomous vehicles

BMW has officially clarified its aim to dispatch self-driving cars by 2021. Presently, the automaker has chosen solid-state lidar (light location and running) sensors and PC vision tech from startup Innoviz (Kfar Saba, Israel) to empower it’s Level 3-5 self-sufficient vehicles to “see” their environment. For lucidity, level 3 and 4 includes exceedingly automated driving; level 5 is altogether autonomous, which implies a human couldn’t mediate regardless of whether they needed to.


Lidar sensors, which utilize lasers to enable self-driving cars to make sense of how to explore, are typically very bulky and continually turning on the top of the car. The solid-state lidar sensor from Innoviz is substantially littler and doesn’t turn. One year from now, the Innovision will accessible as an inherent gadget starting one year from now.

Notwithstanding lidar sensors, Innoviz brings object detection (individuals, autos, trucks, bicycles, path markings), following, grouping and other functionality to BMW. This organization additionally incorporates coordinated effort with car industry provider Magna, which took part in a $65 million Series B round in Innoviz last September.

“Beyond that, our lidar innovation can likewise apply to extra-market applications needing advanced detecting innovation, for example, mapping, armadas and robotaxis, security and observation, modern computerization, coordination,” an Innoviz representative said in an announcement. “At the present time our emphasis is on the car industry, yet we haven’t precluded different zones for future advancement.”
