Velodyne and Autoliv will partner to develop lidar technology for the automotive industry. Autoliv is a global leader in the field of automotive safety systems and Velodyne pioneered the use of lidar for autonomous vehicles.
Now that the partnership has been finalized, Autoliv will develop and market a scalable auto-grade LiDAR sensor that is underpinned by Velodyne’s core 3D software technology and proprietary LiDAR ASIC engine. The LiDAR will also integrate Autoliv’s component development and verification capability.
Plans are for the technology to be first used in the RoboTaxi segment.
Autoliv will also take on the role of the primary commercial and technical interface to customers for awarded business.
