Volvo and Luminar showcase LiDAR technology development at Automobility LA trade show

- Volvo Cars and Luminar have collaborated to develop the most advanced LiDAR sensor

- The system effortlessly detects human poses, including individual limbs such as arms and legs

- Detects objects at a range of up to 250 meters 

 

Volvo Cars and Luminar, a leading start-up in the development of core sensing technology for autonomous vehicles have showcased the most advanced LiDAR sensor and perception capabilities at this year’s Automobility LA trade show in Los Angeles. Autonomous cars will use the pulsed laser signals to detect objects, thereby offering reliable long-range perception capabilities. 

 

The new perception capabilities being developed by Luminar in partnership with Volvo Cars will help the system detect human poses, including individual limbs such as arms and legs – a level of detail not previously possible with this type of sensor. Moreover, the new technology is also able to detect objects at a range of up to 250 meters, a much farther range than any LiDAR technology that is currently available. 

 

Speaking on the occasion, Henrik Green, Senior Vice President for Research and Development at Volvo Cars said, “Autonomous technology will take driving safely to a new level, beyond human limitations. This promise to improve safety is why Volvo Cars wants to be a leader in the autonomous drive. Ultimately, the technology will also create new benefits for our customers and society as a whole. Luminar shares our ambition in making those benefits a reality, and this new perception technology is an important next step in that process.”

 

Adding to it, Austin Russell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Luminar said, “The Volvo Cars R&D team is moving at an impressive pace to solve some of the most advanced problems in the development of autonomous driving. As we’ve scaled up, they’ve remained at the forefront of developing an autonomous system to take the driver out of the loop – ultimately enabling deployment in real consumer vehicles.”
