AEye Automotive Mobility Product Roadmap
Extensible platform open to new sensor hardware and software as available.
The AE110 is AEye's most powerful perception product for self-driving cars.
The AE110 is the latest product in the AE100 series, AEye’s leading-edge, artificial perception system for self-driving cars. Built on the world’s most extensive solid-state LiDAR patent portfolio, the AE110 fuses 1550 nanometer (nm), solid-state agile MOEMS LiDAR, a low-light HD camera, and embedded AI to intelligently capture data at the sensor level, enabling the collection of 4 to 8 times the information of conventional, fixed pattern LiDAR at a fraction of the energy.
Based on AEye’s iDAR (Intelligent Detection and Ranging) perception system, the AE110 delivers more accurate and smarter perception data faster to a vehicle’s path planning system.
The AE110’s unique architecture enables the highest performance in resolution, range, and refresh rate while delivering unprecedented power savings. The AE110 achieves 16 times greater coverage of the entire Field-of-View at 10 times the frame rate (up to 100 Hz), thanks to its ability to support multiple Regions of Interest for both LiDAR and camera. Onboard computer vision and embedded feedback loops enable enhanced machine learning and dynamic software control at multiple levels. This includes software-defined scan modes that allow the AE110 to be “situationally aware,” as well as the dynamic deployment of scan patterns for any driving condition or environment.
The AE110 is automotive SWaP optimized with documented field and environmental testing, as well as automotive deployment optimized with minimal crosstalk, utilizing four layers of interference mitigation and anti-spoofing technology.
The AE110 can emulate the performance and data of any existing system, enabling its seamless integration and expansion in any autonomous vehicle fleet.
