System Scans 25 Images Per Second...​

Stellantis has chosen Valeo’s third-generation LiDAR to equip multiple models of its different automotive brands from 2024. The Valeo SCALA 3 LiDAR will enable these vehicles to be certified for Level 3 (L3) automation, allowing drivers to safely take their hands off the steering wheel and their eyes off the road.


“What sets cars apart from others today is the driving experience they offer. Thanks to our L3 autonomous driving solution leveraging Valeo’s latest generation LiDAR, we will offer a more enjoyable driving experience and give back time to the driver during their journeys,“ stated Yves Bonnefont, Chief Software Officer.

“A new chapter in driving assistance systems is being written with our partners at Stellantis. L3 vehicle automation can only be achieved with LiDAR technology,“ commented Marc Vrecko, President of Valeo’s Comfort & Driving Assistance Systems Business Group. “Without it, some objects cannot be detected. Yet at this level of autonomy, the system’s perception capabilities must be extremely precise. Our third-generation Valeo SCALA LiDAR offers a resolution nearly 50 times that of the second-generation device. The technology comes with unique data collection features, allowing Stellantis to pave the way for new vehicle experiences.”

Valeo’s third-generation LiDAR sees everything, even when an object is far ahead, invisible to the human eye. It can identify objects more than 150 meters ahead that neither the human eye, cameras nor radars can, such as a small object with very low reflectivity, for example, a tire lying on the road. It recreates a 3D image of the vehicle’s surroundings using a point cloud, with an as yet unparalleled resolution for an automotive system. It can map the ground topology and detect road markings.





法雷奥已经是世界第一 高级驾驶员辅助系统(ADAS),全球每三辆新车中就有一辆配备了其技术。这是第一家,也是迄今为止唯一一家在工业规模上生产汽车激光雷达扫描仪的公司。已经生产了17万多台,该技术受到500多项专利的保护。正如2022年2月宣布的那样,该集团打算进一步加快这一领域的发展,推出其升级计划,这是四大趋势(电气化、ADAS、室内体验重塑和照明)的核心价值创造战略。
