Given the sizeable opportunities for LiDAR manufacturers, many players in the market are looking to secure deals with large auto groups and auto makers. With examples such as Innoviz being recently selected by the software division of Volkswagen Group in a deal worth $4.0B, and the Cepton deal with General Motors that can be extended beyond 2027 and could be worth more than $1.0B, competition is fierce and the need to quickly design and produce cost-effective LiDAR modules for mass production is no easy task. One way to do this is with visibility into the technology behind key innovators in the LiDAR market.

TechInsights has procured the Innovusion Falcon - an industry-leading automotive-grade LiDAR that has been chosen as the standard configuration for the NIO ET7 autonomous driving system.
