ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel, Oct .14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, is launching a next-generation sensor to its product line – the InnovizTwo. The new high-performance automotive-grade LiDAR sensor offers a fully featured solution for all levels of autonomous driving at a dramatically lower cost.
Although the automotive industry is well on its way to a highly automated future, this realization is still a few years away. Today, even the most advanced L2+
To allow a safer and smoother adoption of automation, the industry will need to introduce L2+ functionality, but with hardware that supports L3 and L4
To allow this vision, Innoviz is now announcing a new generation of its LiDAR, InnovizTwo.
It has always been the industry's pioneers such as BMW who set the bar for others in the automotive space, introducing the newest, most innovative technologies. As such, in 2018,
"We know how difficult it is to introduce a fully validated L3 platform to the market," explains Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. "Taking such a big step is possible by only a few car manufacturers. We are excited to introduce our next generation product, InnovizTwo, which solves a significant bottleneck in the industry. InnovizTwo will allow more car makers to offer safe L2+, while paving the path to full L3 automation in the most efficient and safe way, eventually enabling the autonomous revolution."
Including Innoviz's high-performance LiDAR and its advanced Perception Software in L2+ platforms will not only bring safer mobility to all, they will also allow the car manufacturers, Tier-1s and Innoviz to collect data through their customer base. While L2+ drivers are still liable for the car drive, new features will continue to be validated, and, later, when safety is statistically proven, the software will be upgraded to full L3 without any hardware change.
Mr. Alejandro Vukotich, former Senior VP of Automated Driving and Driver Assistance Systems at Audi and BMW explains: "Aside from all the technical challenges, it is key to achieve a price point that enables the industry to introduce a commercially viable technology in the market as a L2 system, and then to incrementally validate and verify the L3 in the field before it gets released as a software update. The InnovizTwo is definitely an important and huge milestone in this direction."
Innoviz's mission is to provide safe mobility to all. Innoviz's solutions enable safe autonomy by bringing unparalleled optics, seamless design and cutting-edge software to market. Supported by the knowledge and experience accumulated by the industry's top talent, Innoviz will continue to spearhead the product roadmap, addressing the key need for safe, affordable autonomous vehicle technology.
