Innoviz Announces New Stand-alone Solid-state 3D Sensing LiDAR Solution
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — January 9, 2018 — Innoviz Technologies, a leading provider of LiDAR sensing solutions, announced today the commercial launch of InnovizPro™, a stand-alone, solid-state, MEMS-based scanning LiDAR solution offering the most accurate and reliable performance of any LiDAR sensor available on the market today.
A CES Innovation Awards winner in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category, InnovizPro leapfrogs other LiDAR systems to deliver groundbreaking 3D sensing at a significantly lower cost. InnovizPro™ is the only LiDAR currently available that delivers on all of the automotive industry’s needs for performance, reliability, cost, compact size and product maturity. Now available for purchase, InnovizPro allows Innoviz’s partners in the automotive industry to test and develop the next generation of autonomous driving programs reliably and affordably. Moreover, the current availability of InnovizPro opens the door for Innoviz to tap into additional markets, including industrial automation, security and surveillance, logistics and others.
The product’s exceptionally high frame rate, combined with its high angular resolution and wide field of view, enables it to create a dense 3D point cloud with high accuracy. Meanwhile, its long detection range of up to 150 meters allows it to see with precise clarity at distance. Combined, these features enable InnovizPro to deliver superior accuracy even in the dark of night, cases of bright sunlight or quickly changing weather, and when the vehicle is traveling at highway speeds. Its advanced design also allows fine-tuning of regions of interest and ensures reliability and resilience to sunlight.
“InnovizPro provides immediate accessibility to our advanced LiDAR technology and marks a giant leap forward for the entire autonomous vehicle market,” said Omer Keilaf, CEO & Co-Founder of Innoviz. “We are addressing a major need for high-resolution scanning technology at lower cost, with no minimum order required. While we continue to work towards automotive-grade LiDAR with InnovizOne, our partners can order InnovizPro now in order to gain access to the most advanced LiDAR currently available.”
Founded in early 2016 and backed by US$82 million in funding, Innoviz is one of the first LiDAR providers to deliver a complete product to market. With more than 110 employees worldwide, Innoviz has signed strategic partnerships to manufacture as well as integrate its LiDAR into the autonomous driving systems of market leaders and Tier-1 suppliers including Aptiv (Delphi Automotive) and Magna International.
Innoviz will continue to improve upon its industry-leading scanning performance with the introduction of InnovizOne™, the company’s built-in, automotive grade LiDAR for levels 3 – 5 autonomous driving. InnovizOne will feature even higher standards of performance, reliability, size and affordability. Samples of InnovizOne will be available in 2019.
