ENGINEERING. PRACTICE. POLICY. 33 February/March 2018 unmanned systems inside plus program that upgrades existing production vehicles, and work with industry on standards, Shashua said. "There's a big jump in integrity from Level 2 to Level 3. Level 2 is where we are today," he said. "Adaptive cruise control, hands-free for short periods of time [requires] Level 2 Plus. We would like to make a big jump by adding, at small cost, lane- keeping assist inside a city when the lanes are not clear." In terms of high- definition map build- ing, Shashua said his units are "harvesting production from 2 million cars" and they expect more in 2019. A nother company, Israel-based Innoviz Technologies, said it is offer- ing 3-D LiDAR that it hopes will take advantage of a market that is seeing prices falling to below $5,000 per unit. "We are two years old, with 120 em- ploys and are starting to ramp up our production line to give the Tier 1s and OEMs (original equipment manufac- turers) early access to newer [LiDAR] versions with better range and field of view," said Omer Keilaf, Innoviz CEO. Innoviz, which was recently funded by Aptiv and Magna during a $65 mil- lion round, is working with a European OEM that went to market at the end of January, Keilaf said. "The under-$5,000 LiDAR market is growing. We are starting to see vol- ume go up and price go down," he said. Innoviz won the CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree recognition in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category for its InnovizPro high-def inition solid state LiDAR. InnovizPro is an early version of a unit that will be rolled out in 2019. MORE LIDAR NEWS CANADA-BASED LEDDARTECH showed off its LeddarCore LCA2, which it says is the industry's fi rst 3-D solid-state LiDAR (SSL) integrated circuit (IC) to enable mass production of automotive LiDAR units. The LeddarCore LCA2 was named a CES 2018 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree in two categories: Vehicle Intelligence and Self- Driving Technology, and Embedded Technologies. DIBOTICS AND AGC AUTOMOTIVE displayed a LiDAR sensor that is mounted inside the vehicle. The sensor is hidden behind special infrared transparent glass windshields and glass trim.
