CES Innovation Awards Honoree

Innoviz Technologies Ltd., a leading Tier-1 supplier of high-performance, automotive grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2024 Innovation Awards Honoree for the all-new InnovizCore, and is competing for the “Best of Innovation” distinction to be announced ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show happening January 9-12 in Las Vegas, NV.

The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 29 consumer technology product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers, and more reviewed over 3,000 submissions based on innovation, engineering, functionality, aesthetic, and design. Those with the highest rating will receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction.

“This recognition from CES stands as a testament to our team’s relentless dedication and unwavering commitment towards safe and affordable autonomous vehicle technology leadership,” said Omer Keilaf, Innoviz’s CEO and Co-Founder. “The path to advanced autonomy is developing quickly, and new cutting-edge technologies like the InnovizCore are a critical part of unlocking increasingly higher levels of autonomy. In addition to the functionality that it unlocks, InnovizCore is designed to be easily integrated, compact, and cost effective, and we are proud to receive this award for this outstanding product.”

The InnovizCore is Innoviz’s all-new compute module integrating AI, deep learning, and computer processing to ensure a safe driving experience for Level 2+ through Level 5 autonomous vehicles. InnovizCore includes a powerful system-on-a-chip (SoC) processor for executing computer vision algorithms that integrate Innoviz’s perception software and all-new LiDAR-based Minimal Risk Maneuver (MRM) software, converting millions of pixels per second of raw point cloud data into real-time driving decisions.

The MRM is a fail-safe system that monitors the transition phase between autonomous and manual driving. While most MRM systems on the road today are powered by 2D camera solutions, Innoviz is working alongside its customer the BMW Group to co-develop the expected first-ever LiDAR-based MRM, bringing precise 3D imaging to this safety-critical application.
