Innoviz Technologies to Develop Lidar for BMW

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 4, 2023 — Innoviz Technologies and the BMW Group are expanding their existing collaboration by starting a B-sample development phase for Innoviz’s second-generation InnovizTwo lidar sensor. Samples will be fabricated following BMW requirements.

The partnership will include the first deployment of lidar-enabled highly automated technology on the BMW 7 Series later this year. The result of the first B-sample phase will enable the BMW Group to decide on a serial development agreement with Innoviz that will focus on bringing a new array of advanced automated capabilities to a broader range of the BMW lineup.

In addition to the lidar solution for the 7 Series, the BMW Group and Innoviz have started the first phase to develop a lidar-based minimal risk maneuver (MRM) system. The MRM acts as a secondary safety driving decision platform that will leverage the advanced performance, reliability, and resiliency of the InnovizTwo lidar to manage real-time driving decisions. The MRM system is part of a growing software suite from Innoviz that will also include its next-generation perception software.

Last year, Innoviz’s InnovizTwo lidar sensor and perception software were selected to supply lidar technology for automated vehicles in the Volkswagen brands.

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.
