MicroVision – High Speed Track Testing

MicroVision Releases New Videos from June High Speed Track Testing

REDMOND, WA / ACCESSWIRE / July 21, 2022 / MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in MEMS-based solid-state automotive lidar and ADAS solutions, announced its release of new videos from its second highway speed track test. The Company tested its new MAVIN™ line of sensors, including its new dynamic view lidar system, MAVIN™ DR, in a number of complex scenarios designed to replicate real-life driving. MAVIN is a system that will enable new ADAS safety features addressing the need to see farther, with greater clarity, and respond faster to emerging situations.


The videos showcase the successful testing of two important highway safety scenarios, including:

  • Complex Object Tracking: Through these tests, MicroVision was focused on gathering important ground truth data to refine software solutions on the path toward operating in drive-by-wire mode and autonomous maneuvering. On highways, nothing is standing still. As a result, vision-based sensors can easily get confused. By combining dynamic range with low latency and an ultra-high resolution point cloud, MicroVision’s MAVIN DR can maintain a clear picture of the drivable and non-drivable road at all times. It can look at an object across multiple frames, and once an object is being tracked, MAVIN DR can determine the velocity of that object and track it consistently and if necessary, predict its position in future frames. In a real-life traffic situation with a swarm of cars on a multi-lane highway at high speeds, the MAVIN DR sensor and our embedded software can do complex object tracking to deliver advanced driver safety.
  • Changing Lighting Conditions: MicroVision repeated the tunnel scenario that the Company first demonstrated in March, but this time added a new element to make the scenario more challenging. In this tested scenario, a second, slower moving vehicle emerges in the tunnel alongside the test vehicle. In low light conditions, camera-based sensors will struggle to see other vehicles and obstructions. MicroVision’s MAVIN DR will continue to light up any objects or vehicles in these conditions very clearly enabling an actionable drivable and non-drivable picture of the road ahead.
