Next-generation sensing and perception systems company Aeva will showcase its 4D lidar technology at the ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo at the San Jose Convention Center in California on September 7 and 8, 2022.
On Booth 6010, the company will demonstrate its latest Aeries II sensor and 4D lidar-on-chip technology. A live demo will explain how the Aeries II works, and Aeva’s range of next-generation sensing and perception technologies for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AVs) will also be on display.
4D lidar will be shown in real time and during on-road demonstrations to showcase Aeva’s technology, which consists of instant velocity detection, long-range object detection and Ultra Resolution – a camera-level image with up to 20 times the resolution of legacy time-of-flight lidar sensors.
The Aeries II provides sensing and perception performance using the company’s frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) technology. This works by directly detecting the instant velocity of each point, with centimeter per second precision, in addition to precise 3D positioning at long range. The latest product is 75% smaller than the previous Aeries sensor.
Aeries II integrates Aeva’s lidar-on-chip technology, with all of the key sensor components including transmitters, receivers and optics integrated onto silicon photonics in a compact module. No fiber optics are used, which results in a highly automated manufacturing process that has enabled the company to scale deployment and reduce costs.
