Next Generation 4D LiDAR Technology Provides Safety-Critical Benefits for Advanced Assisted Driving and Autonomous Commercial Vehicles
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 13, 2022 – Aeva® (NYSE: AEVA), a leader in next-generation sensing and perception systems, today announced it will showcase its 4D LiDAR™ technology for the commercial vehicle industry at the upcoming IAA Transportation conference in Hanover, Germany from September 20-25, 2022.
Aeva’s Aeries™ II sensor delivers breakthrough sensing and perception performance using Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology to directly detect the instant velocity of each point, with centimeter per second precision, in addition to precise 3D position at long range. Its compact design is 75% smaller than the previous generation Aeries sensor while achieving the strict environmental and operational standards expected by OEMs and automotive customers.
Visitors to Aeva’s booth (D02, Hall 12) will be able to experience a live demonstration of Aeries II and its LiDAR-on-chip technology first-hand. Aeva will also be providing demo drives for attendees to experience the unique benefits of Aeva’s 4D LiDAR technology, including:
- Instant Velocity Detection: Directly measure velocity for each point of detection, in addition to 3D position, to perceive where things are, and precisely how fast they are moving.
- Long Range Performance: Detect, classify and track objects such as vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians at long distances.
- Ultra Resolution™: A real-time camera-level image providing up to 20 times the resolution of legacy time of flight LiDAR sensors.
- Road Hazard Detection: Detect small objects on the roadway with greater confidence at up to twice the distance of legacy time of flight LiDAR sensors.
- 4D Localization™: Per-point velocity data enables real-time vehicle motion estimation with six degrees of freedom to enable accurate vehicle positioning and navigation without the need for additional sensors, like IMU or GPS.
Aeries II is the first sensor on the market to integrate Aeva’s unique LiDAR-on-chip technology. It integrates all key sensor components including transmitters, receivers and optics onto silicon photonics in a compact module. This design uses no fiber optics, resulting in a highly automated manufacturing process that allows Aeva to scale deployment of its products and lower costs to meet the needs of automotive OEMs and other volume customers.
