Part 1 of 2 (Click here to read Part 2)

The world is seeing exciting new uses of lidar that advance safe mobility and smart autonomy regularly emerge through the skills and hard work of tech product visionaries.

The Automated with Velodyne program works with a global ecosystem of integrators and solution providers to commercialize next generation autonomous solutions using Velodyne’s lidar sensors. Through Automated with Velodyne, we work closely with ecosystem companies on marketing campaigns, business development efforts and technical assistance to support their business growth.

Looking across the program, companies in South Korea stand out for their foresight, inventiveness and entrepreneurship in building trailblazing lidar-based solutions across a range of applications. It is no surprise this is the case. According to Bloomberg, South Korea was the number one most innovative country in the world from 2014-2019 only to be edged out by Germany in 2020. 

This post kicks off a two-part series where we look at some of the most exciting Automated with Velodyne partners in South Korea that have developed autonomous solutions. These lidar-based solutions include autonomous vehicles, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), mapping, robotics and more.

MORAI has developed a simulation platform specifically designed for autonomous vehicle development and testing that uses our lidar sensors. The platform provides a realistic, fully configurable virtual simulation environment for companies to test the robustness of their full-stack autonomous driving algorithms. Companies can test their algorithms in any weather and lighting conditions, and search for edge and corner cases. They can safely test potentially dangerous scenarios, such as emergency braking or obstacle avoidance, and freely create varied sensor configurations of cameras and lidar.
