Delphi Automotive, a global technology company that operates its North American headquarters in Troy, has announced a commercial partnership agreement with Innoviz Technologies, an Israeli company developing LiDAR technology for the mass commercialization of autonomous vehicles.
Innoviz’s proprietary LiDAR sensing solutions will be integrated into Delphi’s systems to provide automakers with a comprehensive portfolio of autonomous driving technologies.
Innovix LiDAR technology utilizes a solid-state design to provide longer-range scanning performance, along with advanced object detection and accuracy capabilities. Long range LiDAR is necessary for enabling Level 3 and 4 autonomous vehicles to travel at high speeds, as these vehicles will need to identify objects at far distances and in great detail in order to operate safely.
“Along with radar and vision technology, LiDAR is an essential component to Delphi’s automated driving perception suite,” says Glen De Vos, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Delphi Automotive. “Innoviz is developing a product that provides a high performance intelligent sensing solution to help advance automated driving technology.”
Delphi has also made a minority investment in Innoviz to further support its commercial partnership.
