Seminole, FL-Salvo Electro Optics is pleased to announce it has developed new LIDAR compliant optics for use in multiple self-driving car systems.  The optics, used in both scanning and stationary systems, are on the market now. 


“We definitely see a push for LIDAR based systems in the self-driving car industry – though Elon Musk might not agree,” said Patrick Bass Executive VP of Salvo Technologies “we have decided to support this effort.  We feel over the next five years this will be an explosive area of growth and we want to be on the front end of that growth.” 


The optical components have been produced and are currently in iterative test cycles with multiple companies around the world.  Results should be available by late summer with production to follow next year.
