XenomatiX, a Belgian based solid-state LiDAR technology provider, announced its partnership with functional glass supplier AGC to build integrated LiDAR sensors for ADAS and autonomous driving. The two companies developed a windshield-mounted LiDAR system that meets automotive requirements while assuring reliable detection. XenomatiX’ high performance LiDAR enables seamless integration behind AGC’s Wideye windshields.
“Integrating XenoLidar behind front and rear windows is an important step towards higher levels of automation for mass production cars”, said Filip Geuens, CEO of XenomatiX. “We are proud AGC selected XenomatiX for a collaboration related to their LiDAR-optimized WideyeTM windshield.” AGC Automotive Europe CEO, Jean Marc Meunier added, “We are pleased to offer WideyeTM, and the first windshield transparent for infrared LiDAR light. This way we tackle multiple concerns from car manufacturers on LiDAR integration, like cleaning the sensor, protecting it, wiring it efficiently, etc…”
According to XenomatiX, the XenoLidar-Wideye integration is at the final stage of joint R&D and will soon involve OEMs to embed the solution with vehicle productions including serial cars, trucks and buses.
