With their limited visibility and maneuverability, large road vehicles such as buses, semi-trailers or delivery trucks are highly at risk of causing road accidents or structural damage to their immediate surroundings. Operators of large vehicles often have to work in challenging weather and deal with various sources of distractions that may temporarily affect their attention.

For that reason, commercial vehicles of all types can greatly benefit from active safety features such as collision avoidance, turn assist or blind-spot monitoring. As well, emerging automated driving solutions such as autonomous delivery vehicles and truck platooning are considered as a way of increasing efficiency and reducing the cost of transporting and delivering goods over short and long distances.

Integrating advanced solid-state LiDAR sensors into commercial vehicles improves spatial awareness and obstacle detection up to 360° around the vehicle, thus radically decreasing the risks of accidents, as well as enabling advanced automation features.
