Valeo's SCALA laser scanner is the first laser scanner for the automotive volume production. This technology is a key enabler for highly automated driving thanks to its unique combination of a large detection range, wide field of view and accuracy.
Valeo SCALA scans the area in front of the vehicle and detects vehicles, motorbikes, pedestrians and static obstacles. Using the collected data, the scanner enables creation of a map of the environment allowing to analyze and anticipate events around the vehicle. This technology as well serves to enhance active safety by initiating measures such like evasion maneuvers or emergency breaking.
