Japan Post to Install LiDAR Sensors on Delivery Vehicles

Japan Post has announced plans to install InnovizOne LiDAR sensors on its postal delivery vehicles to enable future services such as autonomous driving and unmanned delivery.

The initiative was announced during Scrum Ventures’ SmartCityX Conference in San Francisco on 20 July 2022.

Throughout the project, Japan Post’s delivery vehicles will be equipped with InnovizOne technology that will gather precise, high-resolution 3D data about roads and buildings along the delivery routes.

This data will be used to produce detailed digital maps that will pave the way for future services for Japan’s residents, such as autonomous driving.

Executive Officer at Japan Post, Yoshihiro Gomi said:

“We greatly appreciate such an innovative approach full of possibilities to solve local issues across the country using the solution from Innoviz. We hope that the combination of our assets and InnovizOne LiDAR sensor will lead to the creation of a new business.”

Innoviz Technologies reports that the Japanese market for smart city technologies is expected to grow from 45 billion USD in 2021 to over 93 billion USD by 2027. Autonomous vehicles are a key component of this potential growth, as cities are looking to develop future solutions for efficiently moving people and goods.

VP Asia at Innoviz Technologies, David Oberman said:

“Our innovative collaboration with Japan Post highlights the versatility of the Innoviz LiDAR and this is another example of new ways to use LiDAR in smart cities. We are grateful for the resources and support from Scrum Ventures to accelerate deployment of our InnovizOne LiDAR sensors for constructing digital maps and bringing value to Japan residents.”
