Adaptive 3D edge perception platform company Cron AI and Innoviz Technologies, a technology leader of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, have announced a new technology partnership.

This partnership is intended to deliver an enhanced deep learning enabled perception solution for 3D point cloud data on the sensing edge. The collaboration between Innoviz and Cron AI will help to accelerate the adoption of the InnovizOne LIDAR sensor and Cron AI’s senseEDGE platform into the intelligent transport systems, V2X and smart city markets.

Cron AI’s senseEDGE is a platform designed to bridge the gap between complex 3D sensing dynamics and real-world applications, and has been positioned to exploit the unique features of InnovizOne to make better use of its sensor and scanning resources. InnovizOne’s dense and high-resolution point cloud enables senseEGDE to provide real-time, low latency, highly accurate and reliable object metadata information that is more efficient than traditional object detection and tracking.

Cron AI and Innoviz’s partnership aims to ensure that smart city, road and infrastructure operators will be able to receive and act on high-quality, real-time contextual data about objects that move and interact on roads, including vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, and other road users. The automotive-grade, high-density InnovizOne LiDAR sensor and Cron AI’s ruggedized senseEDGE perception platform each deliver real-time data necessary in order for smart city and intelligent transport system applications and connected ecosystems to perform efficiently.

According to Tushar Chhabra, co-founder and CEO at Cron AI,“Our goal is to make it easier and more compelling for new industries to access the huge value of 3D point cloud processed data. With InnovizOne, we can now provide customers a perception solution using perception techniques and computing architectures best suited to processing 3D data. This, in turn, means we can remove the layer of choices customers have been forced to make even at the early design stage.

“In addition to InnovizOne, our senseEDGE rugged edge computing hardware and software platform is expected to support Innoviz’s next generation products, such as the InnovizTwo, which was recently announced. Working hand-in-hand with Innoviz, we will be able to deliver an out-of-the-box solution to our customers.”
