LiDAR Applications – Automotive and mobility

ADAS and ADS | Shuttles and Robotaxis | Last-mile delivery and AGV

Transportation safety and efficiency are undergoing a radical transformation with the introduction of new levels of automation in the automotive industry.

The industry’s strict, growing requirements for performance, reliability, and commercial viability demand standards that cannot be met by just radar and cameras.

Digital LiDAR technology provides high-resolution 3D information about the environment, extensively enhancing the performance, safety and dependability of ADAS and AD systems. 

ADAS and ADS

High performance, cost-effective, high-resolution 3D LiDAR sensors designed for mass deployment. The Level Five Supplies range of automotive-grade perception systems satisfy the safety, reliability and scalability requirements for L2+ autonomous driving.

Luminar Iris

Luminar Iris LiDAR

Iris is the most advanced LiDAR perceptions solution for series-production autonomy, solving the problem of reliable, long-range sensory perception for real-world, safe-driving vehicle systems.

From autonomous motorway driving to full autonomy in urban areas, Iris is configurable with one, or multiple, perception enhanced LiDAR sensors to fit consumer and commercial application requirements.

Ouster OS2-128

Ouster LiDAR automotive application

The second-generation OS2 long-range LiDAR offers a leading combination of price, range and reliability.

Engineered for performance and priced for large-scale deployment, its tight beam spacing and high beam density deliver sharp 3D images with 240 m range, well-suited to highway-speed autonomous driving. Robust IP68/IP69K rated casing for all-weather environments.

Valeo SCALA

Valeo SCALA LiDAR

ROS compatible, automotive-grade LiDAR designed for ADAS and autonomous platforms.

The SCALA® gen 2 Mobility Kit from Valeo is a plug-and-play solution granting swift access to the pointcloud data.

SCALA is designed and built to comply with the strict specifications of the automotive industry, and for volume production.

Shuttles and Robotaxis

Revolutionising urban transport, automated shuttles and robotaxis will make everyday travelling safer, greener and more convenient.  The environments in which these platforms operate necessitate high levels of 360° perception performance and faultless reliability.  Any solutions must offer scalability for fleets to be deployed around the globe.

Ouster OS1-64

Ouster OS1 mid range LiDAR

Sturdy, dependable high-resolution 3D LiDAR sensor that can count and store over one trillion photons per second into on-chip memory. Wide field of view and broad opening angle – ideal for platforms requiring panoramic perception.

The L2X chip and dual returns capability enable object detection through rain, snow, fog, dust, smoke, and other obscurants. While IP 68/69K rated enclosure is rugged, waterproof, robust to shock and vibration, and temperature rated from -40 ºC to +64 ºC.

SICK MRS1000

SICK MRS1000 LiDAR

An efficient, all-around 3D LiDAR sensor with a robust IP65 and IP67 enclosure for outdoor deployment, the MRS1000 is a multilayer laser scanner that reliably and accurately detects and measures objects swiftly, in multiple dimensions.

A 275° horizontal field of view consisting of four layers enables large volumes of data to be collected from different angles.

MRS1000 is ideally suited to outdoor navigation and collision avoidance applications, such as shuttles, pods and robotaxis.

Valeo near field LiDAR

Valeo Mobility Kit near field LiDAR

A high performance, high-resolution plug and play near field LiDAR A4 sensor, acquiring depth-intensity-image and point cloud via Ethernet.

Ideal for low-speed manoeuvring and cold-start use cases, near field LiDAR creates a 3D near field cocoon to complement camera and radar detection, determining the full shape of objects and obstacles, especially in blind spots and at close range.

The sensor provides a wide 78° x 110° field of view and sharp pointcloud volume precision.

Last-mile delivery and AGV

Compact form factor and low power consumption are key considerations when choosing LiDAR sensors for automated guided vehicles (AGV) and last-mile delivery platforms.
