The MPC Electrical team had the pleasure of working closely with the Luminar Technologies team on their autonomous vehicle sensor.

There are a number of things that make Luminar’s lidar system different from their competitors. Instead of depending on the environmental light to help determine where/what is in range, Luminar Techonologies uses their own laser to detect targets, giving it the ability to do so in daytime and night.

This technology enables the detection and identification of objects out to 250 meters ranging from cars to lanes. Their velocity detection tool also enables a longer period of time for a driver’s decision making.

Luminar’s sensor and software capabilities are endless with this product and the MPC team was ecstatic to be a part of their journey.
