Velodyne Lidar Announces Agreement With EasyMile

News

Velodyne Lidar, Inc. announced a three-year agreement with EasyMile, a global leader in driverless technology and smart vehicle solutions.

EasyMile uses Velodyne LiDAR sensors in production of its EZ10 autonomous passenger shuttles that are deployed on public and private roads in more than 30 countries around the world.

EasyMile will enhance its EZ10 shuttle fleet with Velodyne's state-of-the-art sensors for safe and efficient navigation on roadways. Electric and driverless, the EZ10 shuttle was the one of the first autonomous shuttles launched in April 2015. It has a track record of over 200 deployments and more than 600,000 km driven in autonomous mode and one of the most advanced technology currently available. The shuttle, which has capacity for up to 15 passengers, includes a built-in automated electric ramp to support accessibility for individuals with disabilities.

“For precise navigation in real time, the EZ10s use our algorithm that fuses data from a variety of perception sensors, including LiDAR and camera, and localisation sensors, including GPS, INS and odometry. Velodyne LiDARs along with radar scan for objects, vehicles, animals and people that might pose a collision threat, feeding that information to the vehicle's control software,” explained Olivier Pairot, EasyMile's Director of Product Marketing. “By utilising Velodyne sensors, we are able to best gather information on every part of our environment, both close to the vehicle and at longer ranges.”

“Velodyne's high performance LiDAR technology is a key component in enabling our autonomous vehicles to deliver smart mobility in urban, suburban and private environments,” said Benoit Perrin, Managing Director and COO, EasyMile. “Velodyne's solutions have the reliability, quality and production scale we are looking for to continue to grow our fleet worldwide.”

“The EasyMile EZ10 provides a shared, inclusive driverless shuttle solution that improves public transport by connecting hubs and in many cases, delivers a transport service where there otherwise wasn't one available,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “These shuttles show how Velodyne LiDAR sensors provide real-time perception data that enables safe and reliable operation for autonomous vehicles across business parks, public transport connections, university campuses and more.”

Velodyne's sensors are optimised for outstanding indoor and outdoor performance, operating in a variety of light conditions. By combining high-resolution 3D perception with a broad vertical field of view, they can accurately detect a variety of objects.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
