Innoviz Technologies, which develops high-performance, solid-state lidar sensors and perception software, has announced a partnership with Curium, which develops automated calibration services for autonomous systems. The partnership will have Curium apply its calibration techniquest to its advanced driving systems using Innoviz’s solid-state lidar sensor.
Curium’s automated calibration software ensures that the vehicle’s sensor suite is working as it should, even under dynamically changing conditions. The companies said this problem is critical, as sensors that are out of adjustment can lead to mis-detections and accidents. Curium’s system helps simplify the integration of the InnovizOne lidar into any vehicle, as well as the installation of the sensor in the production stage.
Curium said it will also distribute and promote Innoviz’s products throughout Southeast Asia across multiple sectors, including OEMs, shuttles, robotaxis and various industrial applications. The partnership aims to build on Innoviz’s relationships in Asia, including Korea, Japan, and China.
“We are pleased to partner with Innoviz Technologies, a company that has by far the best lidar on the market,” said Ali Hasnain, CEO and founder of Curium. “With Innoviz’s market-leading lidar solution and Curium’s ability to perform multi-sensor continuous dynamic calibration, we will be giving both companies a distinct market advantage when it comes to systems that require the best in lidar technology with superior levels of reliability.”
Innoviz’s technology has been selected by BMW for its fully autonomous car program, with technology to be deployed in BMW consumer vehicles. For more details on Innoviz, visit its website here.
