Delphi has also made a strategic investment in 3D LiDAR sensing company, Quanergy. Quanergy is a privately-held, Silicon-Valley-based technology company developing smart sensing solutions for real-time 3D mapping and object detection, tracking, and classification.
It said those two strategic moves strengthen Delphi’s advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) applications and could help speed the adoption of automated vehicles. The ability to detect objects and execute digital mapping, surface modelling and distant imaging is enabled by the use of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanners.
Are you surprised that this investment was made in a start-up rather than one of the industry leaders in 3D laser scanning? I am not.
