Key features 

The Ibeo Autonomous Driving System (AD system) integrates various Ibeo solutions into one overall system. Many years of experience in the automotive industry form the basis for the development of the technologies of tomorrow. The development of complex driving functions for various applications provides Ibeo with new and in-depth insights into the requirements of high-precision sensor technologies and detection systems for driverless applications. Ibeo’s innovations thus become a viable and pioneering overall system.

Ibeo offers fully integrated AD systems – from heterogeneous sensor fusion, mapping and localisation, through to planning and control of vehicle dynamics, including all the essential redundancies.

All modules and sub-systems are designed in such a way that they can meet the complex requirements of urban traffic situations.

Ibeo’s AD technologies are the result of decades of research work and experience in the automotive sector and are currently being developed further for driverless applications and complete handling of driving tasks. Development in accordance with applicable automotive and safety standards is the focus here. Ibeo’s driverless system can be adapted to many applications and thus allows cost-effective implementation of new mobility concepts.

There are two priorities in the development of the AD systems: a modular design and easy adaptation to the widest possible range of applications. The systems can be combined with any other autonomous driving systems, components and software modules. The technology can therefore be used in a wide variety of vehicle platforms.

The components used meet the standards of the automotive industry and facilitate the cost-effective production and use of the system across the board. Sensors and detection systems from Ibeo have already been used in series production. Ibeo develops the concepts in collaboration with the testing and certification authorities. Through this cooperation, Ibeo is making an active contribution to new methods and definitions for safety standards in the area of autonomous driving.

Thanks to a broad partner network, Ibeo has access to all major technologies for autonomous driving. The Ibeo AD system carries out a central function in this network. In this way, Ibeo is actively shaping the mobility of tomorrow and driving the developments in this area forward in an important direction.

ibeo.Autonomous Products

Our solution

The ibeo.Autonomous solutions convince with state-of-the-art sensor technology and cutting-edge software. The ibeoNEXT Solid State Lidar sensor is part of any sensor setup. This new generation of solid state Lidarcomes without any moving parts and convinces with a high vertical and horizontal resolution and long range. The perception software ensures the high-precision recognition of the environment through the data fusion of various Lidar sensors and other sensor technologies. The specific ibeo.Autonomous software modules on the electronic control unit (ECU) processes the data and passes on appropriate instructions – for example, steering, braking, or acceleration – to the actuation systems of the vehicle. Thereby, the system can be integrated on numerous vehicle platforms in various architectures and is deployable on public roads. All ibeo.Autonomous solutions target a level 4 autonomous driving system.

Why ibeo.Autonomous?
  • hardware and software from one provider
  • more than 20 years of experience in AD systems with test vehicles
  • automotive grade components
  • flexible solution adaptable to different vehicle platforms
  • modular and highly integrable in customer architectures

Our path system automates vehicles on a defined virtual rail. Depending on the use case, Ibeo’s basic automation solution comes either with a trajectory teach-in with collision avoidance by braking or is able to drive around objects within a defined corridor. The real advantage of the system lies in its simplicity, which allows almost limitless possibilities in vehicle automation.


This AD solution is ideal for

  • recurring transportation tasks
  • automatization tasks with fast deployment and regular customization needs
  • public transport trials and demonstrations
  • showcases for concept cars and car exhibitions
  • accurately repeated test runs of “Devices under Test” (DuT) and interacting vehicles
