Velodyne and Hyundai Mobis will launch a new lidar-based advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that integrates Velodyne lidar technology and Hyundai Mobis cognitive software.
In an article in FierceElectronics, Spencer Chin wrote how “the companies will commercialize their first Lidar system for ADAS in 2021 for awarded mass production programs. They will initially provide the system to Asian markets with expansion plans later to automakers in North America and Europe.”
Chin’s article quoted Ko Youngsuk, Head of the Hyundai Mobis Strategy Planning division, saying:
“Hyundai Mobis is delighted to cooperate with Velodyne Lidar, one of the industry’s most innovative Lidar sensor providers, to launch a Lidar system that is essential in high level autonomous driving. The Velarray, utilizing Velodyne’s industry-leading sensing technology, meets the demanding requirements for ADAS applications in an embeddable compact form factor that is ready for consumer vehicles.”
An article on the Velodyne-Hyundai Mobis relationship in Automotive World quoted David Hall, Velodyne Founder and CEO saying:
“Working with Hyundai Mobis and our valued global partners, we will bring forth the power of Velodyne’s 3D lidar perception in vehicles to improve automated safety for consumers around the world. We believe that powerful ADAS systems can be the stepping-stone to building public trust and a pathway to full autonomy.”
