Multi-year supply agreement will bring Aeva’s market-leading 4D LiDAR technology to autonomous trucks, starting in 2022 with the global deployment of Plus’s driver-in product followed by its fully driverless system
Plus (formerly Plus.ai), a global provider of self-driving truck technology, has selected Aeva (NYSE: AEVA), a leader in next-generation sensing and perception systems, to supply automotive grade long-range 4D LiDAR for the production of driver-in and fully autonomous trucks powered by the PlusDrive system. Aeva’s high performance LiDAR will help Plus autonomous trucks sense their environment clearly at long ranges, shorten response time in safety-critical situations, and address edge cases leveraging Aeva’s proprietary instant velocity data.
Aeva and Plus have been collaborating since 2019 to equip and validate Plus’s autonomous trucking system with Aeva Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) 4D LiDAR. With today’s agreement, Plus will use Aeva’s 4D LiDAR sensors to augment its long-range perception in Plus’s commercially available driver-in product starting in late 2022 and leading to its fully autonomous driving system.
