Vueron Technology, established in 2019, is a tech startup specializing in lidar. They have developed innovative lidar-based ADAS for L2+ and above, to deliver a higher level of safety.
Vueron’s flagship product, their VueOne, is powerful enough to perform autonomous driving on a real road using only one lidar with no other sensors. It can be run on automotive processors already used for camera-based ADAS. The CEO and CTO have many years of experience and expertise working for an automaker, and Vueron has been working with global automotive automakers and tier-1s for ADAS and autonomous driving.
In January 2021, Vueron became the world’s first company to be granted an autonomous driving license using only one lidar sensor in South Korea. Expanding in the US, Vueron obtained a self-driving permit in California and Nevada, using only one lidar. Vueron’s autonomous driving fleet now covers multiple continents, allowing for continuous performance improvement.
At CES this year, the company revealed their new, innovative lidar-based ADAS for L2+ or above, available immediately for practical production. Additionally, Vueron’s self-driving car with the lidar-only autonomous driving system was available to visitors who wanted to try out the experience.
By principle, due to their fine resolutions, a majority of lidars can ensure lane detection in addition to their objects ranging capabilities, so they could replace efficiently the classical radar/camera couple. But in term of safety, especially when we consider L3-4 AD (eyes-off), it is agreed by virtually all automakers (except one) and all relevant experts that redundant sensor technologies are necessary for system safety adequate to meet standards like ISO 26262.
