Marelli, a Japan-based SJE Group investment, and XenomatiX have announced they will enter into a technical and commercial development agreement in the autonomous driving field.
XenomatiX will provide Marelli`s Automotive Lighting division, with its true “solid state LiDAR” modules for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) applications. Marelli’s Automotive Lighting Division and XenomatiX will combine competencies and technologies to offer modular LiDAR system solutions to meet future global automotive needs, also leveraging the Artificial Intelligence (AI) perception technology derived from “Smart Me Up”, the French start-up acquired by Marelli in 2018.
LiDAR sensors are widely recognized in the automotive field for ADAS and AD applications. Applications such as lane change assist, highway pilot, or traffic jam assist will strongly rely on LiDAR systems.
