The InnovizAPP perception platform includes automotive-grade hardware and software and enables autonomous vehicles (AVs) to identify and classify objects. Innoviz is already supplying the product to selected car manufacturers, helping them bring their AV projects to market faster.

The platform is based on Innoviz’s Perception software. It processes data from the manufacturer’s lidar sensors in conjunction with proprietary AI algorithms to analyse the point cloud and estimate the speed of an object with high precision. The software can accurately detect and classify objects in any 3D driving scene up to 250 metres away. This allows InnovizAPP to distinguish and classify cars, trucks, motorbikes, pedestrians and other objects. It also runs perception algorithms in real time that detect and classify pixels as collision-relevant or non-collision-relevant.

The InnovizAPP hardware is a reference design based on low-cost automotive-grade components. It connects to existing vehicle systems and enables real-time perception in a simple plug-and-play manner, allowing car manufacturers to test and learn how to build their own autonomous driving systems.

Both Innoviz InnovizOne’s perception software and solid-state lidar sensor are designed and developed to meet the highest automotive industry standards and are already being used by major players such as BMW.
