After a very long lead time, Fisker Ocean is set to start production in November 2022. Despite the adversities in the supply chains, the deadline should be met and the first vehicles from the First Edition will be manufactured. Obviously, the first prototypes have already been produced as a test run. After the completion of the successful test drives, the official start of production should now begin.
Automated driving will become even safer in the future. In addition to the previously installed camera and radar systems, this requires the use of distance measurements with the precision of a laser system. Bosch is planning to start series development of the first automotive-compatible lidar (light detection and ranging). A laser-based distance meter supports driving functions according to SAE levels 3 to 5, in which the vehicle takes over the functions of the driver.
