IBEO Automotive

Since 2014, we have been the distributer for IBEO Automotive in the UK and Ireland regions.

IBEO are market leaders, developing advanced reference and fusion systems for ADAS and autonomous driving. Located in Hamburg, Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH is the German specialist for automotive LIDAR sensor technology.

In addition to the state of the art automotive LiDAR sensors, Ibeo develops software for environmental detection, referencing tools for Highly Automated Driving and Autonomous Driving (HAD/AD) systems as well as Highly Automated Driving and Mapping & Localization applications.


ibeo.HAD is a combination of LIDAR sensor systems and the corresponding algorithms for the development of customer-specific ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and HAD (Highly Automated Driving) applications.

The ibeo.HAD LIDAR technology delivers a detailed and reliable description even in complex traffic environments, in order to fulfil the needs of car manufacturers, automotive suppliers and research institutes.

ibeo.HAD delivers tracked and classified object data online on-board a vehicle in real time.

It can be used as a basis:

  • For automated/emergency braking systems
  • For collision warning systems
  • For adaptive cruise control (ACC)
  • For other active safety systems
  • For comfort systems
  • To conduct studies about driving behaviour.


ibeo.Reference is a combination of Ibeo’s LIDAR sensor technology and the corresponding evaluation software system. The algorithms of the ibeo Evaluation Suite generate reference scenarios to create a benchmark for the evaluation of ADAS and HAD applications.

Users can automatically download and post-process their physical test drives to identify all static and dynamic objects in relation to their Ergo vehicle.

By linking in with the CAN bus system, all triggers that were generated by the onboard software can be reviewed in order to determine the true rate of detection, and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the ADAS system under test.

Furthermore, they serve as basis for the development of new applications.
Use-cases for the ibeo.Reference system are:

  • You want to assess the performance and robustness of your own ADAS applications like a Blind Spot Monitoring System or a Lane Change Assist.
  • You want to create reference data for the evaluation of your Device under Test (DuT) system.
  • You want to use the reference system for the development and testing of your own ADAS applications.
  • It provides a bench mark when comparing firmware releases for your onboard software to ensure the updated coding is a stable and robust as the previously tested version.


Linking the Real world directly into Virtual testing
The IBEO reference system also allows users to automatically transfer a section of their physical test drive directly into the Prescan software to further analyse or understand any scenarios that may be the cause of a false trigger or missed opportunity to detect a possible threat to the vehicle form other road users.

IBEO has developed the worldwide first 4D solid state LiDAR sensor for automotive series use. By avoiding moving parts and using special measurement technology in the ibeoNEXT sensor, Ibeo is breaking new ground in the area of autonomous driving.
