Innoviz Technologies Announces Compliance with Critical Automotive-Grade Standard, Streamlining Adoption by Leading Automakers Pursuing Automated Driving
Innoviz achieves compliance with IATF 16949:2016 for its R&D and manufacturing facilities, essential for seamless integration with consumer vehicle programs.
TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies, Ltd., (Nasdaq: INVZ), a leading provider of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with automotive standard IATF 16949:2016. The compliance statement recognizes Innoviz for developing its own automated manufacturing processes and complying with this standard itself in addition to its supply chain.
The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) is charged with providing improved quality products to automotive consumers worldwide and is composed of world-leading automotive manufacturers, including Innoviz's partner BMW. The IATF 16949:2016 standard is the most widely used quality management standard for the automotive industry and certifies that Innoviz has the process-oriented quality management systems to enable continued improvements, prevent defects, and reduce variation and waste in the supply chain.
This certification is proof that Innoviz has solved the manufacturing challenge of producing high-quality LiDAR consistently and quickly, making it easier for Tier-1 suppliers and automakers beyond its partners Magna International, Aptiv, HiRain, Harman International Industries, and BMW, to adopt Innoviz's LiDAR technology for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving applications.
"The mass deployment of autonomous vehicles is fully dependent upon the industry's ability to manufacture automotive-grade LiDAR technology that meets both performance and cost requirements," said Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz. "We've been working closely with the automotive industry for years to develop our LiDAR technology. Not only does this recognition put us in a strong position to capitalize on the consumer AV market, but as a third-party validation, this is also further proof of our efforts to make our products as reliable and safe as any other car part"
"Achieving IATF compliance marks a major milestone for Innoviz and positions us ahead of the competition in the market for automotive-grade LiDAR technologies," said Shmuel Mironi, director of quality and reliability at Innoviz. "Our team is driven by a commitment to quality and safety above all else, and we're pleased our efforts have paid off."
