Truck & Off-Highway Engineering - February 2022 - 7

TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS
Aurora began testing its systems in
Class 8 Peterbilt trucks in 2020 in the
Dallas-Ft Worth area. These were the
first major tests of its system on open
roads. Aurora claims to maintain a network
of roughly half a dozen closed
testing sites in Texas, California and
Pennsylvania to develop and validate its
systems for a variety of applications.
One of the important and unique
components of Aurora's system is its
Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave
(FMCW) lidar. This perception system
reportedly can detect and track objects
at greater distances, at faster speeds
and more precisely than AM-frequency
lidar systems. The Aurora Driver has a
visual range of nearly 1000 ft (305 meters)
and can detect even non-reflective
objects at that range.
The system utilizes sensors that are
single photon sensitive, which can detect
very small volumes of light.
Aurora's FMCW lidar also operates
FMCW lidar
provides very
accurate velocity
for each data point
instantaneously,
which helps Aurora's
perception system
process incoming
data faster.
around the 1550-nm wavelength band,
allowing the sensors to broadcast
stronger light pulses while still meeting
eye safety standards.
" Our partnership with PACCAR to codevelop
self-driving Class 8 trucks builds
on a deep technical foundation and years
of collective expertise, " said Sterling
Anderson, Aurora chief product officer
and co-founder. " The team is making
progress as we prepare to launch
Peterbilt's first autonomous trucks at
scale. Together, we're building a product
and business that will make our roads safer
and our supply chains more efficient. "
