Hydra is the full tool set for accelerating test and development fleets of tens to hundreds towards series-production applications. It is configurable with one or multiple lidar sensors to enable autonomous driving from the highway to urban driving.

With camera-like resolution up to 200 points per square degree and high data fidelity, it reliably sees where objects are and what they are – even at long distances. Farther sight means enough time to react safely, even at highway speeds.

Velocity Detection
Hydra can detect the velocity of an object in 3 dimensions to enable safe maneuvers. Whether it is a car changing lanes ahead or a child darting into the road, it knows how slow or fast it is moving to enable safe maneuvers.

Configurable Field Coverage
Software configurable scan settings enable you to focus on regions of interest – including an automated horizon tracker.
Hydra’s precise angular resolution enables vertical and horizontal interlaced scanning – an economical solution to aggressive resolution and frame rate requirements.

Always Learning
Combined with ongoing software updates, Hydra becomes more capable. Keeping you at the cutting-edge throughout the entire testing and development process.

Develop with Confidence
Hydra has undergone multiple stress tests from freezing to earth-shaking vibrations so that you can develop with confidence regardless of your environment.

Rebuilt from the chip-level up, it meets the stringent performance requirements for safe autonomy.
