TEL AVIV, Israel and BERN, Switzerland — Innoviz Technologies (NASDAQ: INVZ), a technology leader of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, announced that Switzerland-based LOXO, a provider of zero-emission autonomous vehicles (AV) for last-mile delivery services, is planning to use InnovizOne LiDAR to enable autonomy for its delivery vehicles, which allow retailers to transport goods from local distribution hubs to end consumers more efficiently and with fewer emissions.
Innoviz’s planned partnership with LOXO for autonomous delivery services in Switzerland demonstrates the company’s continued global expansion. Following the initial evaluation period, LOXO plans to purchase more InnovizOne LiDAR units to support its delivery fleet, with pre-sales for the vehicle beginning as soon as 2023.
“Tested using to the most rigorous automotive standards, our InnovizOne LiDAR sensor is well-equipped to tackle challenging urban environments and make the delivery of goods more convenient, affordable, and safe,” said Omer Keilaf, Co-founder and CEO at Innoviz. “In collaboration with LOXO, we look forward to enabling this critical service for users, especially during the busiest delivery days of the year, and revolutionizing the local transport of goods across cities worldwide.”
InnovizOne is a high-performance solid-state LiDAR sensor specifically designed for automakers and robotaxi, shuttle and delivery companies requiring an automotive-grade, mass-producible solution to achieve autonomy.
It is purpose-built to be rugged, affordable, reliable, power-efficient, lightweight, and to seamlessly integrate into unique Level 3 to Level5 autonomous vehicle designs ensuring the safety of passengers and pedestrians alike.
LOXO vehicles equipped with InnovizOne will be designed to meet the demand from the autonomous last-mile delivery market, which is projected to grow from USD 57.67 billion in 2021 to USD 68.95 billion by 2028.
“At LOXO, we’re working at the cutting-edge of autonomous delivery vehicles. As we look forward to deploying our solution on public road in 2023, we have rigorously selected Innoviz’ solution to equip our vehicles with the industry-leading LiDAR to ensure the highest levels of safety and operational efficiency,” said Amin Amini, Co-Founder & CEO of LOXO. “InnovizOne is expertly engineered to be compact and seamlessly integrate into our electric vehicle design. It’s accurate and high-performing, ensuring our vehicles navigate complex and obstacle-ridden urban road networks safely.”
LOXO will present its autonomous and zero-emission delivery vehicle use-case with InnovizOne LiDAR at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Innoviz’s booth #6553.
