Luminar Technologies's Products & Differentiators

    Iris and perception software

    Luminar built the Iris lidar sensor from the chip-level up to unlock next-generation vehicle safety and autonomy across consumer cars and commercial trucks. It provides accurate real-time 3D data for safe, confident decision making and smooth maneuvers at high speeds, in urban environments, and in inclement weather conditions. With a max range of 600m, camera-like resolution more than 300 points per square degree, and high data fidelity, Iris reliably sees where objects are and what they are at long distances. It even detects dark objects at night, like a black car up to 250m away. Combined with software updates, Iris becomes more capable over time, unlocking a roadmap of autonomy while also broadening the capabilities of driver assistance through Proactive SafetyTM.
