Aeye – 1000 Meter Range in Rain, Behind Windshield Glass
AEye Establishes New Benchmark for LiDAR Performance With 1000 Meter Range in Rain, Behind Windshield Glass
- Breakthrough Adaptive Lidar Performance Independently Validated by vSI Labs at American Center for Mobility
AEye, Inc., the global leader in adaptive, high-performance LiDAR solutions, announced its LiDAR sensor already known for extreme long-range capabilities – has achieved yet another milestone: 1000 meter range in rain, behind windshield glass. The test was performed at the American Center for Mobility (ACM) test track in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with results verified by active safety and automated vehicle technologies researcher, VSI Labs.
AEye establishes new benchmark for #LiDAR performance with 1000 meter range in rain, behind windshield glass.
AEye LiDAR Out-Performs in Rain, Behind the Windshield
AEye’s sensor has already been independently verified to have twice the range as the nearest LiDAR competitor. The new test shows that – not only does AEye’s adaptive LiDAR achieve groundbreaking range capabilities, it does so in adverse weather conditions, and behind a first surface: in this case, a windshield.
The test was conducted using VSI’s research vehicle, which integrated AEye’s sensor into its AV stack to study the impact of adaptive LiDAR on the performance and safety of automated functionality. The team used a rain machine to simulate wet weather, and mounted the sensor behind a piece of windshield glass to gauge long-range sensor performance in heavy rain. You can see the video here.
“The ultra-long-range capabilities of our adaptive LiDAR enables OEMs to release new revenue-generating applications like highway autopilot or hub-to-hub autonomous trucking,” said Jordan Greene, GM of ADAS and VP of Corporate Development at AEye. “Being able to deliver this performance in all weather conditions ensures these applications can be safely implemented in even the toughest driving environments.”
