Continental has signed an agreement for a minority investment in California-based LiDAR pioneer AEye Both companies are jointly developing a high-performance long-range LiDAR sensor based on AEye’s patented 1550nm agile architecture that utilizes a novel advanced micro MEMS technology Aim is to industrialize and commercialize this technology for Automated Driving on SAE levels 3 or higher with a dual focus on passenger and commercial vehicle use cases Santa Barbara/Dublin, CA (USA) - October 27, 2020 - Technology company Continental is…
At CES 2019, AEye's Head of Customer Success, Joel Benscoter, spoke with BeTerrific's Michael Artsis about what sets iDAR technology apart from conventional perception systems for autonomous vehicles.
IEEE Spectrum details why the 1550 nanometer wavelength for LiDAR is safe for the human eye, and calls the industry to work together to ensure multimodal sensor compatibility and interoperability.
AEye takes Reuters on a drive down the Las Vegas Strip to show off how its artificial perception technology can detect up to 1000 meters and mimic human perception by focusing on important objects in a scene.
In its "Innovations in Enviro-Sensing for Robocars" feature, Motor Trend details how AEye's iDAR “embeds microelectromechanical systems into solid-state LiDAR, allowing it to fire photons randomly rather than in a preset pattern, making it easier for the computer to process.” This reduces latency and power consumption five to ten times over competitors.
Engineering.com: “While conventional LiDAR systems rely on an array of independent sensors that produce large quantities of data — which [then] require long processing times and extensive computing power to analyze and translate it into actionable information that a car can use” — only AEye’s iDAR system can intelligently prioritize actionable data.
optics.org | The AE200 Series delivers ADAS L3 long range performance of up to 200 meters at 10% reflectivity at 0.1° resolution with a short range performance configuration of 50 meters range at 10% reflectivity. AEye's AE200 Series will be modular in design and capable of up to 120°x 45° Field of View. AEye also recently announced the close of its Series B funding, which will be used to scale its operations to meet the demand of its global partners and customers.…
AEye founder and CEO, Luis Dussan, tells WardsAuto how iDAR “is a step beyond today’s LiDARS systems.” Unveiled at CES 2018, AEye's software-definable, iDAR technology is “a new form of intelligent data collection that enables rapid, dynamic perception and enhanced path planning.”
