DENSO, Aeva Collaborate to Bring FMCW 4D LiDAR to Mass Vehicle Market


Reading time ( words)

Aeva Inc., a leader in next generation sensing and perception systems, has announced a collaboration with DENSO, a leading global mobility supplier of advanced automotive technology for major automakers, to bring Aeva’s 4D LiDAR technology to the mass vehicle market.

Aeva’s 4D LiDAR technology is the only viable Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology to enable automated driving for series production. Built from the ground up on proprietary silicon photonics technology, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR combines instant velocity measurement for each pixel, long range at high resolution, immunity to other LiDAR or sunlight interference, and scalability at industry leading costs on proven semiconductor processes. 

“DENSO is a leader in commercializing advanced technologies at affordable costs and our collaboration is further evidence that Aeva’s 4D LiDAR provides what we believe will be an unparalleled combination of superior performance and scalability,” said Soroush Salehian, Co-Founder and CEO at Aeva. “We’re excited to work alongside DENSO to bring Aeva’s 4D LiDAR to global OEMs looking to implement automated driving across their vehicle programs at scale.”

“Aeva’s FMCW 4D LiDAR solution addresses the missing link for perception in automated driving and advanced driver-assistance systems, with its unique ability to meet the stringent automotive performance and safety requirements,” said Kazuma Natsume, Director of AD & ADAS Engineering Div. 2 at DENSO. “We look forward to collaborating with Aeva to further develop FMCW LiDAR, bring it to the mass market and create a society free from traffic accidents.”

Aeva is engaged with 30 of the top OEM and automotive industry players in the advanced driver assistance and autonomous driving industries, has received strategic investments from Porsche SE, the majority shareholder of VW Group, and has relationships with some of the largest Tier 1 automotive suppliers.

Aeva remains on track to complete its previously announced business combination agreement with InterPrivate Acquisition Corp, a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, in the first quarter of 2021. The business combination is expected to provide up to $563M in gross proceeds. The combined company is expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol, “AEVA”.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
