DJI has taken its wide product and solutions portfolio to CES 2020, including its full drone lineup, handheld Imaging systems along with introducing Livox.
Livox Technology Company Limited is an independent company and says it hopes to ‘revolutionize’ the LIDAR sensor industry.
Backed by DJI’s deep expertise in sensor innovation and hardware manufacturing, Livox is introducing two new sensors that offers a new scanning method to deliver better sensing performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional LIDAR units.
By making LIDAR easier and more affordable to integrate into products and applications, Livox sensors will look to enable new innovations across a broad range of applications from autonomous driving to smart cities, mapping, mobile robotics and more.
Roger Luo, president at DJI, said: “Over the past 13 years, it has been DJI’s core mission to make advanced technology easy-to-use, safe and accessible, which we have accomplished most notably through our leading consumer and commercial drone product portfolio.”
“Livox was born from that same mission and passion for innovation. It is a dedicated team, first incubated within DJI, whose objective is to expand the application of our core technologies, and break barriers to the autonomous world, by working with the thriving ecosystem of innovators in mobile robotics to autonomous driving and beyond.”
Livox aims to demonstrate DJI’s commitment to reimagining what is possible and through its Open Innovation Initiative, DJI provides senior guidance, resources and financial support to empower pioneers in its organization who proactively seek novel ways to solve industry challenges with new technology that is accessible to larger audiences.
Through the initiative, DJI says it will continue to identify new markets and business opportunities around the globe, exploring how its core technology and expanding product portfolio could be used in combination with other technologies to provide a wider range of possible applications in the world today.
