MicroVision to Showcase its MAVIN DR Automotive Lidar at CES(R) 2023 in Las Vegas
Visit Booth #10271 - North Hall for Interactive Demonstrations of MicroVision's Advanced Lidar in Test Vehicle
REDMOND, WA / ACCESSWIRE / December 14, 2022 / MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in MEMS-based solid-state automotive lidar and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) solutions, today announced that the Company will showcase its MAVIN™ DR dynamic view lidar system and display a high-resolution point cloud at Booth #10271 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center and in private scheduled meetings throughout CES® 2023 from January 5-8 in Las Vegas. There will also be presentations and demonstrations of MicroVision technology at the booth throughout the event.
"It's an exciting time for MicroVision as we reach important milestones like the 2022 launch of MAVIN, achievement of Class 1 laser safety compliance, the sale of samples to Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs, engaged in important OEM meetings, and the recently announced intention to acquire Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH," said MicroVision CEO, Sumit Sharma. "I encourage everyone attending CES to come by our booth to learn more about these recent milestones and to see how our technology is ready to enable ADAS features at highway speeds today."
High Speed ADAS
MAVIN DR combines short-, medium- and long-range sensing and fields of view into one form factor. Dynamic range is key to enabling ADAS features at highway speeds. At speeds of up to 130 km/h (80 mph), ADAS systems need more time to make decisions and react in order to take proactive action and hence need resolution at range. MicroVision's sensor produces an ultra-high-resolution point cloud showing drivable and non-drivable areas of the road ahead. With its low latency point cloud (30 hertz), the MAVIN product line allows ADAS systems to respond more quickly, make split-second decisions and take action at high speeds.
Ibeo Acquisition News
MicroVision announced last week that it had signed an agreement to acquire certain assets from Hamburg, Germany-based, Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH, for up to 15 million euros. The acquisition combines MAVIN lidar with Ibeo perception software features into the MicroVision ASIC for automotive OEMs. In addition, this acquisition expands MicroVision's multi-market strategy focusing on industrial, smart infrastructure, robotics, and commercial vehicle segments with Ibeo's flash-based sensor. The combined company is expected to have revenue streams from existing and new product lines ranging from software, Ibeo's flash-based lidar and MicroVision's scanning lidar sensor, as well as other combinations of hardware with perception software solutions.
MicroVision will showcase its technology every half hour in interactive demonstrations within the booth.
