Delphi and LiDAR-maker Innoviz Partner on Self-driving Tech

The commercial partnership with Innoviz includes integration of the latter’s LiDAR sensors into Delphi’s autonomous systems, with the intend of offering a mass commercial offering to the automotive industry that can provide SAE Level 3 and Level 4 self-driving capabilities.

LiDAR’s a key ingredient in most self-driving setups, since it provides extremely accurate, high-detail 3D depth maps of a vehicle’s surroundings. Innoviz has been focused on creating LiDAR that takes up less space than existing solutions, while also coming in at more reasonable price points. Currently shipping industry-leading solutions from other LiDAR suppliers like Velodyne are prohibitively expensive for inclusion in consumer vehicles.
