Solid state LiDAR-based perception systems developer AEye reported that it has provided its AE110 system as an integrated component in the HELLA demonstration vehicle, which will be presented at IAA, the motor show starting from September 12 in Frankfurt, Germany.
HELLA and AEye announced in January that the two companies had entered a joint development and manufacturing agreement to bring ADAS solutions to global automotive OEMs. The physical co-location of AEye’s AE110 solid state LiDAR-based artificial perception system with HELLA’s camera software and radar is the first step to a much tighter integration resulting from this collaboration.
According to AEye, the AE110 sensor system delivers four to eight times the information of conventional, first-generation LiDAR sensors, using a fraction of the time and energy. At IAA, HELLA will be demonstrating the capabilities of the AE110, including instantaneous resolution in the form of defining multiple Regions of Interest within a scene; LiDAR-first perception; a fully software-definable sensor system with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) with full ROS support, and data management tools to import and integrate heterogeneous sensor data.
“We are very proud of the progress of our ongoing collaboration with HELLA and are excited to demonstrate our latest products to the IAA community,” said Luis Dussan, founder and CEO of AEye.
