WideyeTM enables seamless integration of LiDAR sensor(*)
SAFETY AND DESIGN
Why Glass? "More than any other material, glass consolidates the safety offered by LiDAR with aesthetics; glass protects LiDAR sensors from dust and dirt, offers superior beam transmission and resistance to scratches, impacts, ageing effects, chemical contamination, colour distortions caused by ultra-violet light, etc.
Located in any of the upper areas of the vehicle (windshield, sidelites and backlites, roof, side trim) or elsewhere, WideyeTM allows an unobstructed view of the surroundings"
WideyeTM, the eyes of the autonomous car
