Innoviz’s LiDAR also returns multiple reflections per pixel to store multiple points in a 3D environment to deliver a more accurate picture of the surroundings and differentiate objects like raindrops or snowflakes. Contiguous pixels ensure there are no gaps in the scanning pattern to ensure that the system does not miss objects that could fall between point cloud gaps.
For autonomous vehicles to truly thrive as the next generation of transportation, their ability to detect and differentiate real-world objects must be beyond reproach. Innoviz has developed a solid-state LiDAR system that couples next-generation sensors, advanced algorithms, and state-of-the-art perception software to create the smartest, most aware self-driving vehicles available today. LiDAR sensors use lasers to detect, measure, and generate three-dimensional maps of the surrounding environment. LiDAR technology from Innoviz not only senses the real world, but has the ability to differentiate objects in real-time to create 3D maps with pinpoint accuracy.
