Innoviz Technologies Ltd. has unveiled Innoviz360, the newest member of the high-performance Innoviz LiDAR family. Innoviz360 offers an improved performance with substantial cost reduction. The Innoviz360 design is based on a new approach that overcomes existing spinning LiDAR barriers that are limited in performance, expensive, and too large for most applications.
Innoviz360 – Huge Performance In A Tiny Package
The new, lightweight, Innoviz360 LiDAR features up to 1280 scanning lines per frame, configurable frame rate, 0.05°x 0.05° resolution, and 300-meters of range. The Innooviz360 design leverages many hardware advances from InnovizTwo, including a single laser, detector and ASIC, and will benefit from the economic of scale of InnovizTwo.
Innoviz360’s high resolution, high vertical field of view and reduced cost will help overcome major challenges for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking to achieve Level 4-5 automation in applications such as robotaxis, shuttles, trucks, and delivery vehicles. It also enables autonomy in non-automotive applications, such as heavy machinery, smart cities, logistics, construction, maritime, and more.
“Innoviz continues to show its commitment to break through meaningful technology barriers that allow safety in mobility,” said Omer Keilaf, co-founder and CEO of Innoviz. “The Innoviz360 adds another dimension to the company’s growth by enabling Innoviz to become a one-stop shop for all types of LiDAR solutions”
“It comes as no surprise that Innoviz, which is already a key player in the automotive LiDAR market, has entered the 360 degree spinning LiDAR market,” said Mark Fitzgerald, director, autonomous vehicle service at Strategy Analytics – Powered by TechInsights. “There is a market need for better-performing, lower-cost spinning LiDAR sensors, and the early specs for Innoviz360 are strong compared to other similar offerings.”
Innoviz Product Demonstrations at CES 2023:
Innoviz will demonstrate its suite of LiDAR products at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 5-8, 2023. This will be the first opportunity for the public to view Innoviz360’s performance. The company will also demonstrate the InnovizTwo LiDAR sensor on the show floor at booth #6553, as well as partners’ use-cases integrating the company’s first-generation InnovizOne LiDAR sensor.
