Innoviz Technologies and Whale Dynamic to Collaborate on Next-Generation L4 LiDAR-Driven Autonomous Driving Platform

The Collaboration will Integrate Innoviz's High-Performance LiDAR in L4 Platforms in China

PR Newswire

TEL AVIV and SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies (Nasdaq: INVZ), a leading provider of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, and Whale Dynamic, a "full-stack" L4 autonomous driving company based in China, today announced their collaboration on Whale Dynamic's next-generation intelligent autonomous driving (AD) platform.

Whale Dynamic is focused on developing a unified Autonomous Driving platform that incorporates multiple sensors, including LiDAR and high-definition cameras, in order to get a complete and detailed view of the area around the vehicle.  The platform interprets detailed information on the vehicle's surroundings to guide the vehicle using "drive by wire" technology and is a "full stack" or "plug and play" solution for automotive OEMs, robo-taxi companies and autonomous delivery providers.

The new Whale Dynamic AD platform will utilize InnovizOne LiDARs as its primary sensor, replacing the InnovizPro LiDAR used in previous versions.  InnovizOne was selected due to its leading performance, automotive-grade spec., low-power consumption and compact size. 

"We are excited to expand our technology collaboration with Whale Dynamic to bring Innoviz's advanced high-resolution solid-state LiDAR technology to their AD Platform," said Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. "We look forward to collaborating with Whale Dynamics to bring Innoviz's High-Performance LiDAR to L4 Platforms in China, the largest vehicle market in the world."

David Chang, CEO & Founder of Whale Dynamic, commented: "InnovizOne brings us more possibilities to create the world's best sensor fusion design and will also empower our perception algorithm to an unprecedented level. We are looking forward to working together to achieve the goal of building a fully autonomous vehicle capable of completing daily service tasks on public roads."
