LIDAR has been and is going to continue to be one of the key technologies behind self-driving cars.
That’s where Innoviz comes in. The Israeli company, one a new crop of automotive startups to appear around the autonomous vehicle space in recent years, is focusing on creating a LIDAR sensor that is affordable, powerful, and can be implemented into any car to provide level 3 through level 5 autonomy.
“The onset of autonomous vehicles sets a very ambitious timeline for development and commercialization. In order to meet this aggressive timeline, an automotive-grade LiDAR that meets the industry’s stringent requirements for performance, affordability, reliability, and size must become available in order to help the industry reach mass commercialization,” Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz told Design News.
