Luminar announced its partnership with Autonomous Intelligent Driving (AID), a subsidiary of Audi to launch self-driving cars by 2021
Germany: Audi AID announced its collaboration with lidar maker, Luminar, to provide forward-facing high fidelity & long-range LiDAR technology and accelerate plans towards AID’s first fully autonomous deployments in 2021. AID is the self-driving technology supplier for the Volkswagen group, including Audi, Porsche and VW. AID uses proprietary software and deep machine learning-based approaches and has already started testing its fleet in Munich with Luminar sensors.
CTO of AID stated “The aim of the company is to work with the best brands within the industry to accelerate the vision that will be realized across the entire VW Group.
Perception remains a bottleneck today for autonomous mobility and the company quickly worked to find the most powerful sensors to make the perception task easier. That’s where Luminar comes in as the technology is clearly above the pack in terms of range and density, which is important for solving the most challenging problems in autonomy.”
CEO of Luminar further added that “AID is an ideal partner for Luminar with the backing and resources of the world’s largest OEM, while maintaining a fresh software-minded spirit of a high-growth startup. Together, our teams are able to achieve rapid development with an agile, hands-on approach - combining hardware and software expertise to enable autonomous mobility service by 2021. According to TechSci Research, the partnership between Luminar and AID will assist in the development of autonomous mobility technologies. The procurement will provide AID unit of the Audi with forward-facing lidar hardware, which will be used to improve the system's navigation capabilities.”
