Even in 2017, Bryan Salesky Lidar systems held hard more than unproven concepts. But from the crowd of many startups with immature ideas, the CEO of ARGO AI - a company developed for autonomous cars - a company on: Princeton Lightwave had actually developed a functioning prototype. SALENSKY took over the startup from New Jersey, four years later, a finished product has become a finished product from this prototype.

On May 4, Argo AI announced that the LIDAR system was ready for the first commissioning. The prototype originally designed by Princeton now carries the name "Argo Lidar" - and how many of its competitors on the Lidar market will be a technological breakthrough. "With the introduction of Argo Lidar," said the company in an press release , "Has ORGO AI overcome the hurdles that most competitors hinder to commercialize autonomous delivery and driving services."

Simplified Measure Lidar Systems Using Lidar Systems From light waves distances of objects, similar to an infrared radar. With autonomously driving cars, they should grasp the surroundings of the car and prevent it from accidents. Many carmakers are convinced that the sensors are an essential tool for autonomous . Only Tesla relies on cameras and radar, Elon Musk holds Lidar sensors for mischief. "Each and everyone who leaves on Lidar is consecrated to the destruction," said Musk at the Autonomy Day 2019 by Tesla.

"Hard to exceed with reach, sharpness and detailed accuracy"

differently Es Salesky and Argo AI. Princeton's prototone impressed the CEO sustainably. "We brought the skills we had at Argo with those who brought the Princeton. Together, this combination revealed the ideal connection, "said Salesky in May 2021 in an interview with business insiders. The Argo Lidar is better than the competition in three ways: reach, sharpness and detailed accuracy.

Production of Sono Sion has not yet started today. At the same time, interest in the integration of solar panels planned for him is growing in the body.

Salesky stressed, the system could recognize objects in more than 400 meters away. Although Argo AI did not have the strongest range - competitor luminar, allegedly comes to 500 meters - but this number is halved for objects that do not reflect the light waves well. For Argo Lidar, on the other hand, a small reflectivity should not be a major challenge, at least the Senior Director of Hardware and firmware, Zach Little, says, in an blog post . The Lidar system of Argo does not need much light, it could even register a single photon. A photon is the smallest unit of light that is measurable. "Compared to other Lidar sensors, with the single photon recognition of Argo Lidar, we can recognize black painted cars on twice the distance," Little wrote.

Argo has tested its autonomous driving system in a total of six large cities, including Miami, Austin and Washington DC. According to Salesky, these cities are one of the most difficult areas for self-propelled vehicles. The company now plans to continue these tests permanently: Together with Ford , Argo wants to start an autonomous driving and delivery service by the end of 2022. Ford is next to Volkswagen one of the two investors of Argo. Both companies each have around 40 percent of the company. Most recently, German car manufacturers had invested just under 2.1 billion euros in the startup and his Lidar sensors. Due to the DEAL with VW and Ford, the number of employees of ARGO is now increased by 40 percent to 700. The assessment of the company is currently around 5.7 billion euros.

'unfavorable market conditions': MeinAuto shifts IPO

 'unfavorable market conditions': MeinAuto shifts IPO The online new car dealer MeinAuto Group has surprisingly canceled its IPO scheduled for this Wednesday. The emission will be postponed. "The reason for this are the currently unfavorable market conditions for growth-strong companies," said MeinAuto on Tuesday in Oberhaching. The decision made the company and the British financial investor and principal shareholder HG. MeinAuto and HG continued to seek an IPO, "as soon as the market conditions normalize".

Argo is confident that the sensor gives the company a lead over the overcrowded field of startups, tech giants and automakers, which try to replace human drivers through computer. "We believe that Argo Lidar is a great competitive advantage for us," says Salesky.
