Lucid Motors shared some more information on the advanced driver assistance technology for the Lucid Air model. If you haven’t seen their Lucid AIr Test drive video then I recommend you watch the video on our site.
The company says that DreamDrive has 32 sensors, including the latest vision, radar, ultrasonic and Lidar technology. This makes it very different from Tesla’s approach to autonomous driving and assisted driving since Tesla is well known to ignore Lidar technology in their car. If this is the right approach will be seen in the future.
The Lucid Air is noted to be one of the only electric vehicle with lidar and driver monitoring. Some of the other DreamDrive features include Surround View Monitoring, Park In and Out, Front Cross Traffic Protection and more. To me it looks like they are positioning themselves to be ready for the next levels of Autonomous driving.
DreamDrive is also said to use spatial alerts to help improve safety and have an “elegant” Lucid User Experience to interact with the technology features. Lucid Motors plans for a full reveal on DreamDrive at a future date.
Personally I am very excited about the developments from Lucid. To me this is the most interesting car company in the electric car space at the moment. I wonder if they will be able to overtake tesla’s sales at one point in time.
Please let me know about your views on Lucid Air’s Dream Drive technology in the comments below. Do you think their approach is better than Tesla’s no Lidar approach?
