Lucid Motors’ DreamDrive is a new ADAS to be revealed in full next month. It combines sensing solutions including lidar, and will equip the Lucid Air vehicle slated for first deliveries next year. The Air is expected to be the first vehicle with a driver monitoring system and a sensor suite that includes high-resolution lidar as standard equipment. The DreamDrive technology suite supports 19 key safety, driving, and parking assist features that will be available on the Air at start of production, with another eight features expected to be available later via over-the-air updates.
According to Lucid Motors, their electric vehicle will enter the market with 32 sensors including cameras, radars and ultrasonic sensors, as well as a long-range, high-resolution lidar at the front of the car. The comprehensive sensor suite also includes an in-car driver monitoring system designed to share relevant information with the driver while ensuring their necessary attention to the driving task.
The hardware systems of Lucid’s DreamDrive were developed together with the company’s commercial partners including Here, Continental, and Bosch. Lucid built the integration system entirely in-house for the product.
