Partnership will combine Innoviz’s high-performance LiDAR, InnovizOne, with Outsight’s processing software solution, allowing seamless integration of 3D localization and perception technology for smart infrastructure, vehicle and industrial applications
Tel Aviv, Israel and Paris, France - December 14, 2022- Innoviz Technologies (Nasdaq: INVZ) (“Innoviz”), a technology leader of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, today announced its partnership with Outsight. Outsight’s Spatial Intelligence Software, the company’s unique, real-time edge processing and cloud capability platform, offers a plug-and-play solution for effectively integrating 3D LiDAR data into any infrastructure, industrial or vehicle application.
Outsight’s Software, together with Innoviz’s LiDAR products will aim to facilitate and accelerate the adoption of 3D LiDAR technology beyond the ADAS market –
- Infrastructure applications: Intelligent transportation systems (ITS), security and people flow monitoring
- Commercial vehicle and robot applications: Construction equipment, logistics and service robotics
- Industrial applications: Volume measurement, industrial equipment, safety and agriculture
Innoviz’s high-performance LiDAR sensors meet the automotive industry’s strictest requirements for performance and safety. They are purpose-built to be rugged, affordable, reliable, power efficient, lightweight, high-performing and seamlessly integrable, and are ideally suited to enable a wide range of non-automotive use-cases that require mature solutions.
Outsight’s Spatial Intelligence Software makes LiDAR technology easier to use in any project, both in real-time (edge processing) and the cloud, including essential features like LiDAR SLAM, object detection and tracking, classification and segmentation. As a recognized pioneer and leader of the LiDAR processing software category and a founding member of the LiDAR Coalition, of which Innoviz is also a founding member, Outsight’s solutions have been widely embraced in a number of markets and dozens of different use cases throughout Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East.
“We aren’t in the early days of LiDAR anymore. At that time demonstration-level sensor prototypes and research-level algorithms were sufficient to ignite the market and gave birth to the current leaders in LiDAR hardware and software. Non-automotive markets that will deploy LiDAR at scale require a whole new level of maturity, with high-performing and reliable hardware like Innoviz’s LiDAR sensors, combined with scalable and easy to use software solutions like Outsight’s.” said Raul Bravo, President Co-Founder of Outsight. “We’re glad to be working with Innoviz on innovative offerings thanks to the complementary technology and talent of both organizations.”
“Our award-winning LiDAR technology is already being used to monitor pedestrian safety in Los Angeles, improve operational efficiency and safety across shipping ports in China, automate crane systems on construction sites in Japan and more,” said Omer Keilaf, Co-Founder and CEO of Innoviz. “We’re excited to partner with Outsight to continue to accelerate adoption of our LiDAR technologies and power use cases also across ITS, Smart infrastructure, smart industrial and more.”
Outsight will demonstrate the collaboration with Innoviz LiDAR during CES 2023 at Innoviz’s booth #6553 during the show dates, January 5-8, and will present the use-case with Innoviz LiDAR on Wednesday, January 5, 2pm, at Innoviz’s booth #6553, followed by a Q&A session.
Outsight develops real-time 3D LiDAR perception solutions. Our mission is to make LiDAR-based spatial intelligence become plug-and-play, so it can be used by application specialists in any market. Using any LiDAR with our pre-processing capabilities allows smart machines and smart cities to achieve an unprecedented level of understanding of their environment. We believe that accelerating the adoption of LiDAR technology with easy-to-use and scalable software will highly contribute to create transformative solutions and products that will make a smarter and safer world.
