China-based Idriverplus using Velodyne lidar in autonomous driving products

Idriverplus, one of the first companies in China to launch the commercialization of driverless technology and realize mass production, is using Velodyne’s lidar sensors in a range of autonomous driving products. Velodyne has strategically teamed with Idriverplus to help Idriverplus with its efforts for mass production of commercial autonomous vehicles, which include street cleaners, passenger cars, and logistics vehicles.

Velodyne lidar sensors are being used in all Idriverplus self-driving vehicles, providing computer perception data that allows real-time object and free space detection needed for safe navigation and reliable operation.

The Idriverplus street cleaning vehicle, called Viggo, is an unmanned, purely electric solution to sweep roads. During the cleaning process, Viggo can automatically track and avoid obstacles with stable and reliable performance and monitor real-time vehicle information. More than 100 units are in operation in universities, factories, parks, an amusement park and city streets with deployments in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Hebei, Zhejiang, Henan, Hunan and other provinces and cities. Idriverplus also has strategic cooperation partnerships in Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia, and other areas in Asia.

Idriverplus is developing two commercial autonomous car solutions; an SAE Level 4 vehicle that provides autonomous driving in closed parks and some public roads, and an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) solution for automatic parking (AVP) and highway follow-up (HWP).

Its WOBIDA product applies self-driving technology to the logistics industry, providing a safer and better distribution experience. Idriverplus’ driverless vehicles have accumulated test mileage exceeding 400,000 kilometers, far surpassing other domestic autonomous vehicle manufacturers.
