Huawei on Tuesday released automotive-grade high-performance LIDAR products and solutions for the automotive industry, enabling the detection of pedestrians and vehicles in urban areas.
Compared with millimeter wave radar and cameras, LIDAR has stronger capabilities in target contour measurement, angle measurement, light stability, and universal obstacle detection.
Non-regulated pedestrians, non-regulated roads, and even non-regulated driving in urban areas urgently need LIDAR to solve these difficult scenarios.
According to Duan Zhongyi, general manager of Huawei's fusion sensing product department, Huawei designed and developed this 96-line medium-long range LIDAR product, which can achieve urban pedestrian-vehicle detection coverage.
It also has both high-speed vehicle detection capability, which is more in line with scenarios in China's complex road conditions, according to Duan.
LIDAR is an optomechanical product that requires deep integration of multiple fields of optomechanics. Thanks to its long-term accumulation of optical design, signal processing, and overall engineering in ICT, Huawei has reconstructed the core components of LIDAR, including the transmitter module, receiver module, and scanner.
Huawei has established the first Pilot production line for automotive-grade LiDAR, which will be geared toward million-level mass production needs.
Huawei says it is already pushing ahead with an annual production capacity of 100,000 sets/line to accommodate future mass production demand.
BAIC's premium new energy brand ARCFOX then announced that its latest HBT model will be the first in the world to be equipped with Huawei's LIDAR.
Earlier, Yu Liguo, deputy general manager of BAIC New Energy and president of ARCFOX BU, said that the new HBT vehicle will be equipped with three 96-line LiDARs.
