Lidar & Ice Hockey: A Fusion of Precision and Speed!

Detection and classification at high speed are crucial for prominent use cases such as automated vehicles, industrial applications, or robotics, and can only be achieved by high performance lidar and perception. Hence, we assumed ice hockey, renowned for its rapid pace and intricate maneuvers, would find a great ally in lidar technology!

No sooner said than done: MicroVision put on skates, went on ice, and brought together the fastest medium in the world with the nimblest team sport. The intention? Pushing the boundaries of accuracy and redefining the limits of velocity.

During a game of demanding athleticism, MOVIA™ L accurately tracked constant player movements, puck trajectories, and overall game dynamics with unparalleled precision. It captured data at remarkable speeds and proved precise classification and tracking capabilities also in extreme conditions. With the ability to function in temperatures ranging from -40° to +85°, MOVIA™ L succeeds even within the freezing environment of an ice rink. This adaptability ensures uninterrupted and reliable data collection at all times.  

Thank you, Crocodiles Hamburg for having us and for the fun game. We wish you lots of success for the next season!
