Quanergy Systems, a provider of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors and smart sensing solutions, have announced that, based on certification body audits, it has reached compliance with the automotive standard IATF 16949:2016 and the required automotive core tools and product standards.
With this compliance, the company has shown its readiness to produce solid-state LiDAR sensors for use in a wide range of automotive applications.
The IATF 16949:2016 compliance assesses quality starting at the conception of product design to its application, requiring a far more stringent and comprehensive assessment than other certification standards.
Quanergy also performs reliability verification of its solid-state LiDAR sensors using the AEC (Automotive Electronics Council) Q100 family of standards. Additionally, Quanergy ensures the conformance of its key automotive suppliers to IATF16949.
The Lidar Manufacturer earned this compliance after three rounds of third-party certification audits by a leading European certification body, Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd (DNVGL). This comes after only nine months of internal implementation activities, which is half the time it typically takes an organization to achieve this milestone.
This compliance to the array of automotive standards follows the recent announcement that Quanergy obtained ISO 9001:2015 quality certification, forming a solid foundation for automotive solid-state LiDAR production.
