MicroVision has announced the completion of its Germany test vehicle.

Retrofitted in Germany, the test car is prepared to showcase the Company’s MAVIN line of sensors, including its new dynamic view lidar system, MAVIN DR. MAVIN is a system that will enable new ADAS safety features addressing the need to see farther, with greater clarity, and respond faster to emerging situations. MicroVision’s Germany test vehicle is scheduled to demonstrate the system’s capabilities in private meetings with multiple OEMs over the next several weeks. 

The Company also announced the successful completion of its second highway test track session focused on high speed, highway testing of its sensor fusion features and MAVIN DR. The Company expects to share select data from this testing in the near future.

MAVIN DR is the fourth lidar hardware variant from MicroVision and the first to offer a dynamic range, combining short-, medium-, and long-range sensing and fields of view into one form factor. The sensor produces an high-resolution point cloud showing drivable and non-drivable areas of the road ahead. With its low latency point cloud (30 Hz), the MAVIN product line allows ADAS systems to respond more quickly and take action at high speeds.

“It’s an important milestone for MicroVision to put our solution on the test vehicle in Germany so that we showcase our technology firsthand to those OEMs,” said Sumit Sharma, CEO of MicroVision. “As we close out this week’s second highway track testing session, we can report that we’re very pleased with the outcomes and we look forward to sharing select data in the coming weeks.”  

In addition to the dynamic view system, the MicroVision MAVIN DR has a new hardware form factor that complements OEM design. The newly refined form factor enables even more flexible deployment options for OEMs. Built with materials known to OEM supply chains, MicroVision hardware is scalable, sourceable, and supports a lower cost structure.
