Lucid Group announced Oct. 12 the details of DreamDrive™, which it says is the most technically sophisticated advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS).

All versions of DreamDrive employ 32 on-board sensors, a multi-faceted driver-monitoring system and on-board ethernet networking powering more than 30 features through a clear, user-friendly interface.  

 

DreamDrive Pro---standard in Lucid Air Dream Edition and Lucid Air Grand Touring and optional in other Lucid Air models---includes additional computing and sensor hardware in preparation for new features to be delivered via seamless over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

 

"DreamDrive Pro has been designed to grow in capability, thanks to our ability to deliver software over-the-air and key equipment already in place in the vehicle," said Dr. Eugene Lee, senior director, ADAS and autonomous driving, Lucid Motors. "Thanks to highly integrated hardware and software teams, Lucid has the ability to develop new functionality for DreamDrive Pro in-house. This can benefit every facet of the DreamDrive Pro experience, from the frequency of updates to the planned rollout of the Highway Pilot system for conditional automated driving on select roadways in the coming years."

 

The 32 sensors feeding data to the DreamDrive system are seamlessly integrated into the exterior of the Lucid Air, comprising 14 visible-light cameras, five radar units, four surround view cameras, ultrasonic sensors throughout the vehicle exterior and, for DreamDrive Pro, the first automotive application of LIDAR on the market. This solid-state LIDAR sensor will deliver high-resolution data with an ultra-wide field of view.

 

Together, these sensors enable DreamDrive to detect what a human driver cannot, and act as an invisible co-pilot to help drivers get to their destination safely.

 

DreamDrive's easy-to-use interface is the product of countless hours of user testing, making use of text, color and shapes to provide drivers with clear information.

 

DreamDrive Pro also uses Surreal Sound---Lucid Air's fully immersive 21-speaker system---to deliver clear directional alerts. This enhances safety features like front and rear cross traffic protection and autonomous emergency braking.

 

In addition, Surround View Monitoring provides...
