Visionary.ai and Innoviz Partner on 3D Machine Vision Performance | Business
Using Innoviz’s high-resolution lidar, the partnership will add 3D image processing to Visionary.ai’s advanced 2D ISP capabilities to develop and enhance a comprehensive 3D image of a scene. The combination of technologies will enable imaging under challenging conditions, such as extreme low light, high dynamic range, heavy rain or fog, high motion, and sudden changes in intensity, such as flashing headlights.
Prior to launching its collaboration with Visionary.ai, Innoviz in January announced Innoviz360 for full automation in scale for L4-L5 automotive applications, as well as applications beyond the automotive space. The company expects samples of the lidar architecture to be available later in 2022. Courtesy of Innoviz.
Visionary.ai received an initial round of $4.5 million in funding in February 2021, which it followed with an additional $2.5 million in February this year. The company unveiled its ISP at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
Innoviz this year announced Innoviz360, a patent-pending lidar architecture featuring 360° × 64° coverage, 0.05° × 0.05° resolution, and up to 1280 scanning lines and 300-m range. It expects samples of Innoviz360 HD LiDAR to be available in the fourth quarter of 2022, the company said in January.
