Innoviz Technologies and Harman International, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced a strategic partnership to make Innoviz’s solid-state and mass-producible LiDAR solutions available to OEMs globally.

“Harman’s partnership with Innoviz reflects the company’s leadership in providing high-quality perception solutions now, and dedication to collaboratively pushing the automotive industry forward in the short-term, meeting automakers’ ambitious goals of autonomous vehicles in the next few years,” said Mike Peters, President, Connected Car, Harman International. “Together, we’ll be able to effect change on a global scale, benefitting our customers and supporting the industry’s unstoppable move towards semi- to fully autonomous vehicles.”

InnovizOne, which Harman will make available to OEMs through this partnership, is a solid-state LiDAR sensor that is designed for automotive deployments and the mass-production needs of automakers. Innoviz LiDAR sensors create dense 3D point clouds.

“Partnering with Harman marks a significant milestone for Innoviz,” said Omer Keilaf, CEO and Co-founder of Innoviz. “Harman serves as a strategic gateway to OEMs pursuing ADAS and autonomous driving technologies that are in desperate need of a sensing solution that delivers unrivaled performance in a low-cost device that is available now. Innoviz has long served as a lighthouse in the noisy LiDAR space, leading the pack with OEM design wins and Tier 1 supplier partnerships—and Harman helps strengthen that lead by offering Innoviz’s LiDAR solutions.”

Innoviz will be present at CES 2019 in Tech East at the Westgate, booth #1415. The InnovizOne automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR and perception software, winner of the 2019 CES "Best of Innovation" honor, will be on display during the event.
