Blickfeld And Koito To Develop LiDAR That Can Be Fully Integrated Into Headlight

News

Blickfeld, a leading provider of solid-state LiDAR technology, and Koito Manufacturing, the leading global Tier 1 supplier of exterior automotive lighting, announced that they will explore technologies to develop a LiDAR sensor that can be fully integrated into a headlight.

The integration of Blickfeld's LiDAR into Koito headlamps will enable automobile manufacturers to possess breakthrough LiDAR technology in which the sensor is fully integrated into the vehicle, which will in turn facilitate unprecedented progress in serial Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicle systems (AV).

Blickfeld's 3D solid-state LiDAR technology is designed to meet the highest automotive performance requirements. The core of the Blickfeld LiDAR is a proprietary silicon MEMS mirror specifically developed for LiDAR applications. This enables not only safe and in-depth information about the surrounding environment, but also mass-market availability. The compact design of the miniature solid-state LiDAR by Blickfeld allows direct integration into a vehicle's lighting system, enabling real-time 3D mapping and object detection, classification, and tracking, without marring the design of the vehicle.

Dr. Mathias Müller, Co-Founder and CEO of Blickfeld: “With its renowned expertise and strong market position, Koito is a proven pioneer in the field of automotive headlights. We have been working very successfully with the Koito team since early 2018 and are thrilled to develop the next generation of lighting products.”

Yuji Yokoya. Executive Vice President of Koito: “Koito has been in search of innovative, high-performance LiDAR technology from around the world, and among what we have found, we regard Blickfeld as one of the most promising companies in their field.”
