Cron AI and Innoviz Technologies have announced a new partnership to deliver a deep learning-enabled perception solution for 3D point cloud data on the sensing edge. Specifically, the collaboration will accelerate the adoption of the InnovizOne LIDAR sensor and Cron AI’s senseEDGE platform into intelligent transportation systems, including V2X and other smart city markets.
“Our goal is to make it easier and more compelling for new industries to access the huge value of 3D point cloud processed data,” said Tushar Chhabra, co-founder and CEO of Cron AI. “With InnovizOne, we can now provide customers a perception solution using perception techniques and computing architectures best suited to processing 3D data.”
“We are continually seeking ways to reduce cost, risk, and time to market for innovators such as Cron AI as we develop new use cases and applications for our LiDAR sensors,” added Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. “Our partnership with Cron AI will allow us to offer and deliver next-generation solutions.”
Cron AI and Innoviz say their partnership will focus on providing solutions for a rapidly evolving mobility ecosystem. The partnership will encourage city, road, and infrastructure operators to take a connected approach with regard to delivering high-quality, real-time contextual data about road users in the interest of increased safety. According to the companies, the InnovizOne LiDAR sensor and senseEDGE perception platform help smart cities, intelligent transport systems, and other connected ecosystems perform more efficiently.
“This, in turn, means we can remove the layer of choices customers have been forced to make even at the early design stage,” Chhabra explained. “In addition to InnovizOne, our senseEDGE rugged edge computing hardware and software platform is expected to support Innoviz’s next-generation products, such as the InnovizTwo, which was recently announced.”
About The Technology
senseEDGE is designed to bridge the gap between complex 3D sensing dynamics and real-world applications and is positioned to leverage the features of InnovizOne to make better use of its sensor and scanning resources. Likewise, InnovizOne’s dense and high-resolution point cloud enables senseEGDE to provide real-time, low latency, and reliable object metadata information.
“Working hand-in-hand with Innoviz, we will deliver an out-of-the-box solution to customers who can now start building products with the confidence that critical decisions will be the right ones,” Chhabra said.
