BMW Selects Innoviz Technologies' LiDAR Sensors and Computer Vision Software for 2021 Autonomous Vehicles Series Production

News
When building autonomous vehicles, one of the most important challenges is ensuring that the vehicle can see the world around it. To help solve this problem, Innoviz Technologies and its partner, Magna, have been selected by the BMW Group to provide solid-state LiDAR for upcoming series production of its autonomous vehicle platforms. This groundbreaking, high-resolution LiDAR technology generates a real-time 3D point cloud of the vehicle's surroundings, even in challenging settings such as direct sunlight, varying weather conditions and multi-LiDAR environments, in order to help facilitate levels 3 through 5 of autonomous driving. In addition, the solution provides a complete computer vision software stack and algorithms to turn 3D vision into critical driving insights.

LiDAR (Light and Detection Ranging) is recognized as an essential technology for developing autonomous vehicles because it enables 3D object detection and scanning performance that cameras and radar sensors cannot match. Yet in order for LiDAR to become commercially viable, it must be delivered within a solution that ensures performance, safety, reliability, cost and size, for the mass market. Currently no solution on the market meets all of these requirements, but Innoviz, owing to a major technological breakthrough, has developed a LiDAR that meets all of the automotive industry's requirements and delivers a solution to drive the industry forward towards full autonomy.



Innoviz identified a major gap in the market and came up with a disruptive technology design that delivers a comprehensive mass-market solution to enable the mass commercialization of autonomous vehicles. In order to fix the design and performance flaws of existing LiDAR solutions, the company had to redesign most of the components in the system and invent a new solution from the ground up.

InnovizPro, the company's stand-alone LiDAR solution, launched at this year's CES conference and is currently available for purchase directly from Innoviz, enables OEM's, robo-taxi fleets, Tier 1's, and other automotive companies immediate accessibility to the company's groundbreaking technology. These stakeholders can integrate it into the next generation of their autonomous vehicles for testing and development. 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. While InnovizPro devices can be ordered now to support testing and development of autonomous vehicles, Innoviz continues to improve upon its industry-leading scanning performance with the introduction of InnovizOne™, a built-in, automotive-grade LiDAR that will feature even higher standards of performance, reliability, size and affordability when samples become available in 2019.



InnovizOne's exceptionally high frame rate, combined with its high angular resolution and wide field of view, enables it to create an extremely dense 3D point cloud offering optimal clarity and accuracy, even at long distances.

In addition, Innoviz will provide BMW with a complete computer vision software stack that leverages deep learning and a critical algorithmic layer to turn 3D vision into critical driving insights. This software layer uses the company's advanced LiDAR information to provide object detection and classification of pedestrians, cars, trucks, bikes, driveable area, lane marking etc.

BMW is setting a high standard in autonomous vehicles development, and their vote of confidence in Innoviz's LiDAR demonstrates how advanced the technology is. The Innoviz and Magna teams collaborated to meet BMW's requirements in quality and functional safety.
