Technology Designed to Convert Human-Operated Vehicles into Self-Driving Vehicles

By Energy CIO Insights | Tuesday, August 20, 2019

LHP has agreed on a partnership with PerceptIn’s modular approach to developing an autonomous sensor. knowledge of embedded controls and system integration proves to bring low-cost, easy to build stand-alone solutions to the micro-transit industry

FREMONT, CA: PerceptIn, robotic mobility, and visual intelligence solution provider, and LHP Engineering Solutions (LHP) have agreed to work jointly. LHP, a global technology integrator and engineering services provider within the transportation industry along with PerceptIn, are working to deliver an autonomous modular solution. The solution is set to transform a conventional human-operated vehicle into a self-driving machine. This solution was released on the occasion of an ongoing economic development scheme to bring the State of Indiana into the vanguard of autonomous solutions. LHP and PerceptIn have advanced in partnership to transform into a driving force for a safer self-sufficient future. Both the entities are committed to promoting and contributing to the well-guarded and sustainable growth of autonomous driving solutions.

PerceptIn’s in-house sensor suite is installed on the Dragonfly Pod to allow flexible integration. This software will enable OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers to build their self-driving solutions into the pre-existing human-operated vehicles with the utilization of drive-by-wire adaptation technology. 18 years of experience in embedded controls, vehicle systems integration, electrification, automotive functional safety, and cybersecurity back the company’s ability to cater to client requests. The company has focused exclusively on building an easy to install, low-cost autonomous solution. 

The DragonFly Modular Technology

PerceptIn’s DragonFly Pod is a road-ready, low-speed vehicle that uses both patented vision-based sensor fusion with a modular computational system. This combination allows for real-time detection, object localization, and collision avoidance that minimize a significant risk of an accident. Being a singular example of how the Dragonfly sensor technology could be applied to the Microtransit industry, the DragonFly Pod includes other applications. These use-cases include niche commercial vehicle applications such as mining equipment, or public transit in urban settings such as in city centers, on University campuses, or at corporate campuses. The opportunities for autonomous growth through modular technology are numerous.

Additionally, LHP has set its focus on playing an active role in the acceleration of development. PerceptIn has been initiated adoption and widespread use of interconnected machines and devices through autonomous systems along with the modular system’s package. LHP’s goal is to enforce and build the framework required for a more connected and safer autonomous future.

As the automotive industry evolves continuously with the advent of autonomy, It has created the need for changing transportation. Companies like PerceptIn and LHP have taken a vow to help drive, integrate, and re-design autonomous technologies with safety being given the most priority.
