Automotive Reference Sensor
The prevailing view of lidar for automotive and autonomous vehicle customers today is producing a point cloud (I.e., lidar as imager) as a data fusion input for the AV challenge of both localization and perception.
Psionic’s proprietary Reference Sensor is an entirely new product that can provide both precision localization as well as vehicle pose—a critical input for active safety systems. Today’s vehicles rely primarily on GPS signals for localization, but AVs require much greater precision. The Reference Sensor, using SurePath technology originally developed for military applications, provides precision navigation capabilities regardless of GPS signal.
For active safety systems, understand the vehicle’s directional state or pose is a critical input necessary for active safety systems such as collision over-steer, under-steer, anti-lock brakes and other safety systems. The Reference Sensor is available in a reduced form factor and testing with automotive partners. Please reach out for additional information.
