Aeva and Nikon Collaborate on 4D Lidar

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Sensing and perception systems company Aeva is collaborating with Nikon Corp. The companies will focus on bringing frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) 4D lidar with unique micron-level measurement capability to high-precision industrial automation and metrology applications.

The partnership seeks to develop next-generation industrial solutions using Aeva’s 4D lidar technology. Aeva and Nikon expect to accelerate adoption of joint products in industrial automation, metrology, and manufacturing applications. 

“This marks a milestone for Aeva’s expansion strategy beyond autonomous driving applications,” said Soroush Salehian, co-founder and CEO of Aeva. “We are excited to work closely with a leader like Nikon in an established market with massive growth potential as we accelerate our expansion into industrial applications, targeting product release in 2025. 

“By leveraging our common core lidar chip architecture that we’ve already developed for automotive applications, we can bring industry-leading costs to volume scale, which we believe has the potential to upend the growing industrial automation industry.”

GLOSSARY
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
lidar
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
