Lucid Motors' DreamDrive to Use LIDAR, Will Be 'Most Advanced ADAS' In the World

Written by Tom Moloughney, Inside EVs


When the Lucid Air hits the market in early 2021, it will employ one of, if not the most advanced suite of driver-assist systems.

According to Lucid Motors, the all-electric Air will be the first electric vehicle offered with the combination of an advanced sensor suite, high-resolution LIDAR, a driver monitoring system and a fully redundant platform as standard equipment on all vehicles. 


The Ford Mustang Mach-E looks to have a similar ADAS system, including the use of LIDAR and a driver monitoring system called Active Drive Assist. However, unlike the Lucid Air, Mach-E customers will have to pay extra if they want the system, as it's included in the Ford Co-Pilot 360 Active 2.0 Prep Package. 


Lucid has named its ADAS system DreamDrive and has this to say about it: "The first-of-its-kind platform combines the most comprehensive sensor suite on the market with a cutting-edge driver monitoring system, all standard on the first versions of the Lucid Air."


The key features delivered by DreamDrive:




  • Surround view monitoring
  • Blind spot display
  • Cross traffic protection
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Alerts for distracted or drowsy drivers




  • Full speed highway assist (adaptive cruise control and lane centering)
  • Traffic drive-off alert
  • Headlight assist




  • Autonomous parking assist
  • Pullout control
  • Maneuver comfort braking


Lucid's DreamDrive technology suite supports 19 key safety, driving and parking assist features that will be available on Lucid Air upon the start of production.
