ams, Ibeo, ZF join forces for solid-state automotive lidar
The race for lidar systems suitable for high volume production is heating up: After Israeli startup Innoviz, now Austrian chipmaker ams, lidar expert Ibeo Automotive systems and tier one supplier ZF Friedrichshafen (Ibeo’s parent company) plan to roll out a solid-state lidar sensor system. The trio even intends to pass Innoviz on the home stretch to be the first vendor capable of rolling out such a sensor.

“Lidar is already a key technology in the automotive sector, and to date our leading products are used with automotive companies in Europe and worldwide. The combination of our solution know-how with ams’ VCSEL technology will create a tipping point for solid-state lidar in the automotive sector,” said Dr. Ulrich Lages, CEO, Ibeo Automotive Systems.

“Being the first to market with solid-state lidar means ams brings a unique capability to Ibeo and ZF,” said Alexander Everke, CEO, ams. “Together with Ibeo’s leading solutions and integration capability, coupled with its deep experience in lidar we will provide an unmatched solution for auto- motive manufacturers in their quest to create the mission-critical reliability required for autonomous driving.”
