Baraja enters agreement with unnamed automotive OEM

Baraja has announced what it calls a “major step forward for automotive integration” of its Spectrum HD25 lidar product, through an “advanced development agreement” with an undisclosed automotive OEM.

Baraja enters the agreement with its partner Veoneer, a Tier-1 hardware supplier and system integrator. 

Spectrum HD25 is based on Baraja’s proprietary Spectrum-Scan solid-state scanning platform, which the company says “enables the range, resolution and performance required for true autonomy, without the traditional trade-offs faced by other legacy LiDAR technologies.”

Veoneer had spent extensive time evaluating engineering samples of Baraja’s technology, said Joseph Notaro, Chief Commercial Officer, Baraja.

“This is a big milestone for Baraja as we continue to solidify the power of our technology for automotive scale,” he added. 

“Our ongoing partnership with Veoneer and cooperation with a global car company have been instrumental in our success and we look forward to all that’s to come in the near future.” 

Spectrum HD was made available to manufacturers to test in 2022, and is the first such system to be available for less than US$1000 per unit, according to Baraja. It debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada in January.

Baraja was founded in 2016 in a garage by Federico Collarte and CTO Cibby Pulikkaseril, both telecommunications engineers, and then became the first tenant at the CSIRO’s Lindfield Collaboration Hub.
