Innoviz and Outsight partner to drive lidar adoption

19 Dec 2022

InnovizOne and with Outsight’s lidar software to target smart cities and industrial roles; to be demoed at CES2023.

Innoviz Technologies, a developer of high-performance, solid-state lidar sensors and perception software, today announced its partnership with Outsight.

Outsight's Spatial Intelligence Software, the company’s 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.

The partners say that 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”. Key applications areas proposed include:

  • Infrastructure applications: Intelligent transportation systems (ITS), security and people flow monitoring;
  • Commercial vehicle and robot applications: Construction equipment, logistics and service robotics; and
  • Industrial applications: Volume measurement, industrial equipment, safety and agriculture.

Innoviz says its lidar sensors meet the automotive industry’s 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,” the company said.

Outsight’s Spatial Intelligence Software is claimed to “make 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.

‘Widely embraced solutions’

As 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.

Raul Bravo, President Co-founder of Outsight, commented, “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 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.”

Omer Keilaf, Co-Founder and CEO of Innoviz, said, “Our award-winning lidar technology is already being used to monitor pedestrian safety in Los Angeles, improve operational efficiency and safety across ports in China, and automate crane systems on construction sites in Japan and more.”

The partners will demonstrate the collaboration with Innoviz LiDAR during CES 2023 at Innoviz's booth (#6553), between January 5-8, 2023. They will also present the use-case with Innoviz lidar on Wednesday, January 5, 2pm, at Innoviz's booth, followed by a Q&A session.
