NEWARK, Calif. — Lucid Group, which is setting new standards with its advanced luxury EVs, announced today the details of DreamDrive™, the most technically sophisticated advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS).
DreamDrive employs up to 32 on-board sensors, a multi-faceted driver-monitoring system, and lightning-quick on-board ethernet networking powering more than 30 features through a clear, user-friendly interface.
DreamDrive Pro – which is standard in Lucid Air Dream Edition and Lucid Air Grand Touring and is optional in other Lucid Air models – includes additional computing and sensor hardware in preparation for new features to be delivered via seamless over-the-air (OTA) software updates.
“DreamDrive Pro has been designed to grow in capability, thanks to our ability to deliver software over-the-air and key equipment already in place in the vehicle,” said Dr. Eugene Lee, Senior Director, ADAS and Autonomous Driving, Lucid Motors. “Thanks to highly integrated hardware and software teams, Lucid has the ability to develop new functionality for DreamDrive Pro in-house. This can benefit every facet of the DreamDrive Pro experience, from the frequency of updates to the planned rollout of the Highway Pilot system for conditional automated driving on select roadways in the coming years.”
A Sensor Suite That Can Detect What the Human Eye Cannot
As many as 32 sensors feed data to the DreamDrive system, yet they are so seamlessly integrated into the exterior of the Lucid Air that most won’t notice them at all. Comprising 14 visible-light cameras, five radar units, four surround view cameras, ultrasonic sensors throughout the vehicle exterior, and, for DreamDrive Pro, the first automotive installation of LIDAR in North America.
This solid-state LIDAR sensor will deliver high-resolution data with an ultra-wide field of view. Together, these sensors enable DreamDrive to detect what a human driver cannot, and act as an invisible co-pilot to help drivers get to their destination safely.
