Germany/Reutlingen, 09th September 2021
Marelli belongs to the Top10 of global automotive suppliers and is characterized by innovation spirit, international expertise and worldwide presence. Under a joint development agreement signed during CES2020 with the Startup XenomatiX, Marelli Automotive Lighting is creating a new line-up of LiDAR modules. We are leveraging our strong background in optics and electronics to release this technology in automotive market.
Our jointly developed full solid-state LiDAR modules, using mature VCSEL and CMOS technologies, are the base of a reliable and affordable sensor offering. This novel LiDAR technology has no moving parts, which makes our solution immune to automotive shocks and vibrations. There is no mechanical scanning involved, like on spinning or MEMS-based LiDARs: we cover our full field of view, resolution, range or frame rate at the same time and without having to make compromises which are still required with most of currently used technologies.
We combine our different module types in standalone LiDAR units or embed them into lamps (SmartCorner™) and other car areas to achieve short, mid and long-range distance measurement sensors. These modules come with diverse field of view and resolutions to better match our customer’s use case requirements. While running/using our in-house developed tracking and classification software we are combining neural networks and rule-based algorithms. Also following Automotive SPICE®, ISO26262 ASIL B and SOTIF customer requirements during each project phase is our standard. All this enables us to fully support autonomous cars and ADAS functionalities, such as valet parking, traffic jam chauffeur or highway pilot (i.e. reinforced L2 to L5, acc. to SAE J3016™).
