SICK and Aeva Partner on 4D Lidar for Industrial Sensing

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Sensing perception system developer Aeva has partnered with SICK AG, a provider of industrial sensing solutions and cameras, in a multiyear collaboration to bring Aeva’s frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) 4D lidar to a variety of industrial sensing applications, including long-range sensing, beginning with Aeva’s Aeries II 4D lidar-on-chip solution.

Aeva’s FMCW 4D lidar technology provides high dynamic range performance to perceive low and high reflectivity objects within the same measurement without edge effects, a joint press release announcing the agreement said. The technology is also reportedly immune to blooming and ghosting from retroflectors, meaning automated machines using Aeva’s 4D lidar will have clear perception when highly reflective objects such as safety vests, cones, and tape are in the field of view of the sensor.

Aeva began shipping Aeries II to strategic customers in the quarter ending June 30, 2022.

GLOSSARY
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.
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
