Single lidar AD solution approved by California DMV
Vueron Technology

Lidar AV startup, Vueron Technology, has succeeded in obtaining an autonomous vehicle permit that uses only one lidar sensor that no one has yet tried in California, where numerous AV companies are fiercely competing.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles approved lidar-only AV testing permits for Vueron. Following this, Vueron succeeded in driving 616km from Los Angeles to San Francisco via Interstate 5 and Interstate 580 for six hours at a maximum speed of 112km/h. According to Vueron, the safety driver who rode in the vehicle never held the steering wheel during the entire trip.

Its lidar-only autonomous driving permit puts Vueron one step closer to adapting lidar (which was expected to be expensive and difficult to apply) effectively to actual autonomous driving services and everyday life.

Generally, diverse sensors are used at the same time for autonomous driving, but Vueron has implemented self-driving by utilizing only one lidar sensor and has verified its solution through self-driving tests in a variety of roadway conditions and environments. The self-driving system did not use any camera, radar, GPS or HD map, utilizing instead a single spinning lidar sensor.

At the expo, Vueron will show the self-drive video from Los Angeles to San Francisco, clearly demonstrating the high lidar cognitive performance.
