AEye’s iDAR artificial perception system leads the industry in range and scan rate performance for automotive-grade Lidar. iDAR is a new form of intelligent data collection that fuses 1550 nanometer (nm), solid-state agile Lidar with a low-light HD camera and embedded AI to intelligently capture data at the sensor level. Hella will bring in its high competence in the field of embedded software and image processing as well as its automotive experience and industrialization capabilities along the entire supply chain to leverage and extend this platform. This joint development effort will bring best-in-class Level 3 ADAS solutions to global automotive OEMs. The companies demonstrated first results of their already existing cooperation at CES in Las Vegas.
Frank Petznick, responsible for Automated Driving at HELLA, says: »Hella is actively promoting the trend towards AD. The collaboration with AEye will provide us with additional opportunities to catalyze new functionality for ADAS and AD solutions that will redefine performance.«
