Autoliv partners with Velodyne for commercial development of LiDAR

Autoliv, the global leader in automotive safety systems, has signed an agreement with Velodyne LiDAR, a leading supplier of LiDAR technology for commercialising LiDAR, a critical sensor for autonomous cars.

Velodyne will support Autoliv for the development of an automotive grade LiDAR with the first application to be seen in the RoboTaxi segment.

With the agreement in place, Autoliv will develop and market a scalable auto-grade LiDAR sensor using Velodyne's core 3D software technology and proprietary LiDAR ASIC engine; along with Autoliv's component development and verification capability.

Both companies will contribute key components, technologies, know-how and other intellectual property needed to optimise the next generation of affordable, high performance LiDARs in the automotive market. Autoliv will also serve as the primary commercial and technical interface to customers for awarded business.

"LiDAR is an important sensor for cars to drive safely by themselves. Autoliv's vast experience in automotive design and testing and high volume manufacturing capability coupled with Velodyne's leadership position in LiDAR technology, will fast-track the commercialisation of LiDAR for traditional automotive customers and mobility providers", said Johan Lofvenholm, president, Auoliv Electronics.
