15 January, 2018
It is probably the only LiDAR currently available that delivers on all of the automotive industry's needs in a compact form factor and mass market pricing
Innoviz Technologies from Kfar Saba, Israel, announced the commercial launch of InnovizPro, a stand-alone, solid-state, MEMS-based scanning LiDAR solution. InnovizPro provides long detection range of up to 150 meters. It is probably the only LiDAR currently available that delivers on all of the automotive industry’s needs in a compact form factor and mass market pricing. The company said that the availability of InnovizPro opens the door for additional markets, such as industrial automation, security and surveillance, logistics and others.
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.
Next Generation to be available in 2019
“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.” These days the company continue to improve its solution, and fevelops the future InnovizOne, the company’s built-in, automotive grade LiDAR for levels 3 – 5 autonomous driving. Samples of InnovizOne will be available in 2019.
Production Agreement with Jabil
In December 2016, Innoviz publicly announced its first partnership with the leading Tier 1 automotive supplier, Magna International Inc, enabling Magna and Innoviz to jointly collaborate on various OEM programs. In May 2017, Innoviz announced a partnership with manufacturing company Jabil Optics to mass produce InnovizPro. In August 2017, Innoviz signed a commercial partnership agreement with Delphi, a leader in autonomous driving software and sensors, to integrate its LiDAR into Delphi’s systems and create an industry-leading standard for LiDAR integration into autonomous driving systems.
