Video: Watch how lidar is tested during a harsh winter

23 April 2024

Innoviz Technologies Ltd. has successfully completed a winter test of its lidar and perception software that includes 120 hours of driving across 10 countries.

The test was used to improve Innoviz’s artificial intelligence (AI)-backed software and hardware system and the tests consisted of thousands of kilometers of information as the car passed through Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria.

Innoviz tested its suite of autonomous solutions during extreme temperatures, rain, snow and heavy fog.

"Proving its efficacy in diverse conditions – from the bluest of skies to the harshest icy conditions - and enriching our software with road data will take the Innoviz AI-platform to the next level,” said Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. “We are confident this technology will help demonstrate our ability to meet strict timelines and showcase the robustness of our architecture."

According to market research firm IHS, 10 million lidar scanners across various autonomy levels are expected to be in operation in the automotive market by 2030. Five years later, lidar scanners are likely to double this amount, IHS forecasts, showing how integral to the automotive landscape this technology will become.
