Lumotive and Himax Technologies target autonomous vehicles with industry-first liquid crystal on silicon solution for high-performance lidar systems

SEATTLE and TAINAN, Taiwan, Sept. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lumotive, the Bill Gates-funded startup developing LiDAR systems for autonomous vehicles, and Himax Display, Inc., a subsidiary of Himax Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIMX), today announced a first-of-its-kind, jointly-developed solution to enable disruptive beam steering technology in LiDAR systems that marries Himax’s proven Liquid-Crystal-On-Silicon (LCOS) technology with Lumotive’s patented Liquid Crystal Metasurfaces™ (LCMs) to significantly improve the performance, reliability and cost of LiDAR systems. In the automotive industry, Lumotive’s LiDAR solution will enable both advanced driver-assistance systems (or ADAS) and fully autonomous vehicles such as “robo-taxis” and self-driving trucks.
