Volvo Cars and Luminar show groundbreaking autonomous technology development at Automobility LA 2018

Volvo Cars and Luminar demonstrate LiDAR sensor and perception capabilities at Automobility LA trade show in Los Angeles.

The new perception capabilities being developed by Luminar in partnership with Volvo Cars make it possible for the system to detect human poses including individual limbs such as arms and legs, a level of detail not previously possible with this type of sensor. The new technology is also able to detect objects at a range of up to 250 meters, a much further range than any LiDAR technology currently available.
