Innoviz Technologies, an Israeli provider of high-performance, automotive-grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, is deploying its InnovizOne LiDAR sensors at ports across China. The deployment is being carried out with its strategic partner in China, HiRain Technologies, a leading Tier 1 solutions provider for the Chinese automotive market. The first deployment started in RiZhao port, with both parties planning to expand the project to additional ports.
Just last month, Innoviz revealed that the company had entered into a $4 billion agreement with Volkswagen. Specifically, the deal is to provide Lidar technology to CARIAD, an automotive software company owned by Volkswagen. So, Innoviz is going global.
CARIAD selected the InnovizTwo next-generation LiDAR sensor and perception software. This is Innoviz’s third design win with a major automaker and first deal as a Tier-1 supplier.

Founded in 2016 by Israeli Intelligence Corps veterans from Unit 81 Oren Rosenzweig and Omer David Keilaf, Innoviz produces solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software that enable the mass-production of autonomous vehicles. Its solutions include InnovizPro and InnovizOne which provides 3D sensing for Level 3-Level 5 autonomous driving.
Lidar is a component of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). Lidar measures distances by illuminating a target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target.
The company boasts that its InovizOne is a solid-state LiDAR sensor specifically designed for automakers and robotaxi, shuttle and delivery companies requiring an automotive-grade, mass-producible solution to achieve autonomy. The automotive-grade sensor is purpose-built to be rugged, affordable, reliable, low-power consuming, lightweight, high-performing and seamlessly integrable into Level 3-5 autonomous vehicles to ensure the safety of passengers and pedestrians alike.
“The global supply chain crisis is being made worse by labor shortages and higher levels of congestion at ports in China and around the world,” said Omer Keilaf, co-founder and CEO of Innoviz. “The deployment of HiRain’s autonomous vehicle and V2X systems using InnovizOne LiDAR comes at an especially opportune time, as it will greatly improve efficiencies and enable 24/7 operations.”
