Korean start of lidar perception software Vueron Technology acquired a California autonomous driver’s license Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This is the first case of a company clearing customs self-driving license test using single lidar in California, USA.
Vueron tested self-driving on a 616 km route from Los Angeles to San Francisco via Interstate 5 and Interstate 580. The safety driver, who conducted the test drive, did not hold the wheel a only once during the test. Autonomous driving was achieved in 6 hours at a maximum speed of 110 km/h. Various sensors for autonomous driving like cameras, radars, GPS and HD maps were used.
The startup will bring next-generation LiDAR sensor technology to the US
Autonomous driving technology’s Lidar sensors are responsible for detecting and tracking vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles. It is also used to measure distance to safely navigate at different speeds. Founded in 2019, Vueron Technology offers ‘View. One, a Lidar perception solution for autonomous driving. Based on a self-developed cognition algorithm, ‘View. One’ quickly recognizes objects and features advanced object recognition capability in an integrated environment, providing outstanding system stability and compatibility and optimized cognition solution for various customers’ needs.
Kim Jae-gwang, CEO of Vueron, said, “Through this autonomous license acquisition, the potential of our technology has been recognized in California, where many self-driving technology companies compete. Vueron plans to unveil next-generation standalone LiDAR a driving platform that can be applied immediately in the second half of this year.”
In 2021, Vueron obtained an autonomous driving license using a single lidar in South Korea. Vueron’s self-driving technology car that relied on a lidar sensor for driving license was the first such case in the world. Veuron Technology’s self-driving car was first driven on a 414 km highway from Seoul to Busan at 100 km/h.
