Polestar, Luminar expand Lidar partnership to include Polestar 5

The Polestar 5 is set to unleash the power of long-range Lidar technology as Polestar and Luminar expand their collaboration. Their existing partnership has resulted in the Polestar 3 being outfitted with Luminar’s cutting-edge Lidar technology, and configurations with this innovative technology are now able to be ordered. This four-door GT is expected to launch in 2024 and is based on the remarkable Polestar Precept concept car, making it a must-have for style and tech-savvy drivers alike.

The long-awaited Polestar 3 electric SUV is finally ready to arrive at the end of 2023. This is the first model from the Polestar brand that will be built in the U.S., with initial units taking off from China. You can look forward to plenty of advanced features thanks to the state-of-the-art Lidar technology from Luminar. This same technology is being used on the upcoming Volvo EX90 as well. The Polestar 3 will be able to offer autonomous freeway driving, taking your hands off the wheel for a totally hands-free experience.

If you’re planning to order a Polestar 3 with Lidar, expect your pre-order to arrive sometime in 2024.

“Luminar is at the forefront of long-range LiDAR technology and this closer collaboration will allow for greater innovation in our cars to come. We look forward to combining our R & and product design expertise to deliver truly stunning LiDAR integration and capabilities for the Polestar brand,” said Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath.

Lidar technology is essential in the development of autonomous vehicles. By using this technology, cars can accurately map and scan their environment in real-time. This enables them to safely navigate complex traffic scenarios, detect and avoid objects in their path, and make decisions quickly and efficiently. The technology is also being used to develop advanced driver assistance systems, such as lane keeping and parking assistance, which could potentially reduce the number of accidents caused by human error. Ultimately, Lidar technology could make our roads safer and more efficient, and could be the key to bringing autonomous vehicles to the mass market.
