In July 2020, Ibeo was nominated by China’s largest SUV and pickup truck manufacturer Great Wall Motor Company to supply the new ibeoNEXT solid-state LiDAR device for level 3 vehicles with SOP (start of production) in 2022. The official project started with the signing of the contract by both parties on 13th July 2020. In the future, Ibeo will supply a system that enables a Level 3 highway pilot
Since early 2021, the project partners have gotten underway with the validation of their Real Solid State ibeoNEXT sensors together with German-Chinese service provider LiangDao, which was commissioned by Ibeo for series testing. The aim is to prepare a Proof of Concept (POC) for general validation of its ibeoNEXT sensors. Ultimately, the test procedure is executed to avoid any undesired driving behavior which may occur as a result of faulty measurement data.
GWM will be using Ibeo technology for the future series production models of its premium WEY SUV, the LiDAR system will be applied in series starting by end of 2022.
