Innovusion today has unveiled its short- to mid-range lidar designed to work with vehicle’s fenders, headlights, rear lights or bumpers to provide added safety to current and future cars.
The company will be showcasing its lidar, called Robin, at this week’s CES 2022 along with its production-ready Falcon lidar for longer detection ranges.
Robin provides 360° vehicle coverage including blind spot detection with a height of just 35 mm so it can be used in exterior vehicle peripherals.
The Falcon lidar has recently been selected by Chinese electric vehicle maker Nio as its standard image-grade sensor for its ET7 sedan. Innovusion said the Falcon in Nio’s ET7 will be the first long-range lidar to be used on a consumer vehicle.
Falcon can detect objects at up to 500 meters and allows OEMs to enable high levels of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) functionality and autonomous driving capability.
“After the start of production in 2022, our yearly LiDAR volume produced with our advanced production line can reach 100,000 units per year with higher volume possible after a few months of capacity expansion, and will be able to support future demand from global OEMs,” said Junwei Bao, co-founder and CEO of Innovusion.
