Can LiDAR Software Pave the Way for Zero-Emission Autonomous Delivery Vehicles in 2024?

10 Aug 2023

In recent years, the development of autonomous vehicles has captured the imagination of technology enthusiasts and industry experts alike. With the promise of increased efficiency and reduced emissions, autonomous delivery vehicles hold the potential to revolutionize the logistics and transportation sectors. 

However, one significant hurdle that remains is the integration of reliable and advanced sensor technologies to ensure safe navigation and object detection. Among these sensor technologies, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) has emerged as a key technology, offering a range of benefits in the autonomous vehicle landscape. 

According to the BIS Research report, the global LiDAR software market was valued at $0.33 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $1.94 billion by 2031, witnessing a CAGR of 21.53% during the forecast period 2022-2031.

Switzerland to Deploy Zero-Emission Autonomous Delivery Vehicles with InnovizOne LiDAR Technology
Innoviz Technologies, a leading supplier of automotive-grade LiDAR sensors and software, has partnered with LOXO, a Swiss provider of zero-emission autonomous delivery vehicles, in June 2023. 

LOXO signed a letter of intent (LOI) to integrate InnovizOne LiDAR units into its delivery vehicles until 2024. This collaboration aims to enable efficient and sustainable transportation of goods from distribution hubs to end consumers for retailers.

Vueron Partners with Cognata to Enhance LiDAR Perception Software for ADAS and AV Systems

Vueron, a prominent provider of LiDAR perception software, collaborated with Cognata, a well-known simulation software provider for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) systems, in July 2023 as its trusted simulation partner. This collaboration aims to expedite the progress of LiDAR perception software for autonomous driving systems. 

The rising emphasis on government mandates for advanced safety features in vehicles has led to a surge in demand for ADAS systems. This demand is further propelled by the increasing adoption of autonomous vehicles and the necessity for advanced safety capabilities. 

Amidst this changing landscape, the significance of resilient and dependable LiDAR perception software is driving the advancement of ADAS technology. It plays a vital role in improving safety and meeting regulatory standards. 

Contribution of LiDAR Software to Zero Emission AVs

In the context of zero-emission autonomous vehicles, LiDAR software can contribute to energy efficiency by optimizing sensor usage. The software can adapt the LiDAR sensor's scanning patterns and resolution based on the vehicle's speed, environmental conditions, and navigation requirements. This optimization helps to reduce the power consumption and extend the vehicle's range on electric propulsion.

Moreover, by combining data from LiDAR with other sensors, such as cameras and radar, the software helps to improve the vehicle's perception capabilities and mitigates the risk of sensor failures or limitations in different environmental conditions. 


The continuous progress in LiDAR hardware and software technology is driving down costs and facilitating wider adoption of LiDAR solutions worldwide. LiDAR software providers are increasingly collaborating with other important players in the LiDAR software ecosystem to extend their presence on a global scale.
