As you’d expect, DJI has a big presence at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). But on top of showing off the company’s hardware lineup and handheld imaging systems, the drone industry’s leading manufacturer is introducing a success story from its Open Innovation Program: Livox. 

Livox has big ambitions in the lidar sensor space. At CES 2020, the startup is introducing two new sensors and a new method of lidar scanning which, it claims, is set to deliver “better sensing performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional lidar units.”

The aim is to make lidar easier and more affordable to integrate into products and applications. Livox has eyes on everything from autonomous driving to smart cities, mapping and mobile robotics. 

Livox’s lidar technology uses a new Non-Repetitive Scanning pattern. The method offers significant benefits over the traditional Repetitive Linear Scanning pattern favored by other lidar sensor providers.
