AEye Lidar achieves a new breakthrough, can detect objects 1,000 meters away in the rain
When Musk insisted on using vision sensors, lidar could already identify objects 1,000 meters away in the rain.
According to foreign media reports, the adaptive high-performance lidar company AEye said that its lidar sensor has achieved another milestone-when it rains, the lidar behind the windshield can recognize conditions within 1000 meters.
The test was conducted at the American Mobility Center (ACM) in Michigan. The testers used a rain machine to simulate wet weather and placed the sensor behind a windshield. After verification, AEye's adaptive lidar already has a breakthrough ranging capability.
I wonder if Musk will change his mind?
Electrification is only the beginning, and the revolution that truly belongs to Volkswagen has not yet arrived!
Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of Volkswagen, said at the previous "ACCELERATE" strategy conference.
In order to accelerate the pace of strategic transformation from a traditional OEM to a "software-driven mobile service provider", the Volkswagen Group launched the "ACCELERATE" strategy, a new generation of high-performance scalable pure electric vehicle platform Scalable Systems Platform (SSP). Also came into being.

A new mechatronics automotive platform that is electric, fully interconnected, and highly scalable.
In addition, at the NEW AUTO strategy conference, Volkswagen emphasized that the future will be a software-driven direction. To this end, Cariad, the automotive software company of the Volkswagen Group, aims to develop an industry-leading software platform in 2025 as the main framework for all vehicle models of the group.
According to the introduction of Cariad CEO Dirk Hilgenberg (Dirk Hilgenberg) at the meeting, in the next few years, Cariad’s primary goal is to develop a new, unified and scalable E3 based on the SSP platform. 2.0 Software architecture and end-to-end electronic architecture.
Once this new software architecture is fully deployed, it will open up a new ecosystem service system for the Volkswagen Group, providing customers with a large number of software-based customized services throughout the product life cycle.
So far, Volkswagen is the car company with the clearest and most comprehensive plan for future strategies among global auto companies. But whether its goal can be successfully implemented is still an unknown.
