InnovizTwo features an embedded automotive-grade Perception Platform (InnovizAPP) that includes classification and detection capabilities in addition to the point cloud.
Enabling Safe Mobility for All
Innoviz has announced a new generation of its LiDAR sensor, InnovizTwo, which solves a significant bottleneck in the industry.
To allow a safer and smoother adoption of automation, the industry will need to introduce L2+ functionality with hardware that supports L3 and L4 upon launch. Due to its reduced cost and enhanced performance, InnovizTwo will allow more car manufacturers to offer safe L2+, while paving the path to full L3 automation in the most efficient and safe way.
With InnovizTwo, car manufacturers, Tier-1s and Innoviz will be able to collect data through their customer base. As new features will continue to be validated and, later, statistically proven. This dynamic will eventually lead to the car’s software to be upgraded to full L3 without any hardware change.

ISO 26262 Compliant
Configurable Regions of Interest
InnovizTwo has an individually-controlled region of interest for dynamic focus in a limited FOV.
InnovizTwo returns multiple reflections per pixel and records and stores multiple points in a 3D environment. This is important when laser pulses hit rain droplets, snowflakes, or more than one object on their path.
No Gaps Between Pixels
InnovizTwo has no gaps in the scanning pattern within the Region of Interest due to contiguous pixels, which are critical to building a safe autonomous vehicle perception system. Without this, a system might not detect humans or collision-relevant small objects lying on the road’s surface if they are within point cloud data gaps.
Equally Distributed vFOV
InnovizTwo enables flexible control of the vertical resolution throughout the vertical FOV. It can support both uniform resolution or variable resolution (for example, high resolution within the ROI and lower resolution outside of the ROI). The InnovizTwo vertical FOV also includes panning capabilities that support varying mounting tolerances and driving conditions, such as vehicle loading.
Resilient to Sunlight and Weather Conditions
InnovizTwo is resilient to ambient light sources, such as direct sunlight and blinding lights from oncoming cars, as well as poor weather conditions
