Aurora Driver | July 08, 2020 | 1 min. read
Today, we’re excited to debut Aurora’s FirstLight Lidar as a sensor on Aurora’s next-generation test vehicles, where it helps our perception system see and track objects farther, faster, and with greater precision than ever before. You can expect to see a fleet of Aurora vehicles on the road, fully integrated with Aurora’s FirstLight Lidar, starting this summer.
From the beginning, we’ve architected the Aurora Driver to seamlessly operate different types of vehicles doing different jobs: helping people get around, delivering packages, and hauling goods over long distances. Since founding the company, we’ve demonstrated this versatility by integrating the Aurora Driver with six different vehicles—ranging from sedans and minivans to tractor-trailer trucks—all in our first few years as a company.
Delivering the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly.
