Smart cities perception software bridges gap between 3D sensing and real-world applications

Adaptive 3D edge perception platform company Cron AI and lidar sensor manufacturer Innoviz Technologies are collaborating on a deep learning enabled perception solution targeted at the intelligent transport systems, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and smart city markets. The new partnership seeks to deliver a lidar-based adaptive perception solution for 3D point cloud data on the sensing edge.

According to the partners, SenseEdge, a platform designed to bridge the gap between complex 3D sensing dynamics and real-world applications, will leverage InnovizOne features to make better use of its sensor and scanning resources. InnovizOne’s dense and high-resolution point cloud enables SenseEdge to provide real-time, low latency, highly accurate and reliable object metadata information that is stronger than traditional object detection and tracking.
