The Overview of 4D Lidar Technology
Aeva’s proprietary 4D Perception software delivers real-time camera-level resolution that provides up to 20 times the resolution of legacy LiDAR sensors, enabling automated vehicles with unique capabilities like small road hazard detection at highway speeds and up to twice the distance of what is possible today. Toggle between Ultra Resolution views of Reflectivity, Velocity and Distance for the 4D LiDAR data set.
4D lidar technology software has numerous benefits in the century.
Vehicle Motion Estimation & Navigation
Per point velocity data enables real-time ego vehicle motion estimation with six degrees of freedom and enables accurate vehicle positioning and navigation in GPS denied and featureless environments without additional sensors, like IMU or GPS.
Object Detection & Classification
4D Lidar technology has instant velocity data allows for high confidence detection and tracking of dynamic objects of concern, such as oncoming vehicles and pedestrians, at distances up to 500 meters.
Superior Hazard Detection
4D lidar technology identifies small objects with greater confidence. It detects small objects on the road, including low reflectivity objects like tire fragments, at up to twice the distance of legacy time of flight LiDAR sensors.
Compact & Configurable
The compact design is 75% smaller than the previous generation, allowing for a wide range of sensor integration points in automotive and non-automotive applications. Choose from multiple realtime software configurable options including FoVs, scan patterns, resolutions, and maximum detection ranges.
Reliability In Demanding Conditions
The 4D lidar technology built for reliability with automotive grade ratings for ingress, impact, temperature, and shock and vibration to ensure optimal performance across a variety of autonomous applications.
Detect, classify and track dynamic objects of concern, such as oncoming vehicles, pedestrians, and animals, at greater distances than today’s Time-of-Flight legacy LiDAR.
Freedom From Interference
4D lidar technology is immune to Sunlight and Other LiDAR Sensors. Aeva’s FMCW technology is resistant to interference from sunlight and other LiDAR sensors, including Aeva sensors, ensuring performance across a wider set of lighting conditions and when used near other LiDAR-equipped vehicles.
Aeva’s groundbreaking silicon photonics design eliminates all fiber and incorporates all key LiDAR elements into a single compact chip module, allowing for automated mass production to meet the sensing and perception needs of a wide variety of autonomous applications at mass scale.
Designed for a wide variety of applications including level 3 and 4 autonomies for cars, trucks, people and goods mobility, as well as non-automotive applications including industrial automation, smart infrastructure and warehouse automation.
Aeva’s mission is to bring the next wave of perception to a broad range of applications from automated driving to industrial robotics, consumer electronics, consumer health, security and beyond.
Aeva is transforming autonomy with its groundbreaking sensing and perception technology that integrates all key LiDAR components onto a silicon photonics chip in a compact module. Aeva 4D LiDAR sensors uniquely detect instant velocity in addition to 3D position, allowing autonomous devices like vehicles and robots to make more intelligent and safe decisions.
Aeva’s Aeries II 4D LiDAR sensor delivers breakthrough sensing and perception performance using Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology to directly detect the instant velocity of each point, in addition to precise 3D position at long range. Its capabilities go beyond legacy time-of-flight 3D LiDAR sensors to enable the next generation of driver assistance and autonomous vehicle capabilities.
Aeries II is the first sensor on the market to integrate Aeva’s unique LiDAR-on-chip technology which integrates all key sensor components including transmitters, receivers and optics onto silicon photonics in a compact module. This design uses no fiber optics, resulting in a highly automated manufacturing process that allows Aeva to scale deployment of its products and lower costs to meet the needs of automotive OEMs and other volume customers.
