Explore our resources. Together with our partners, we aid innovation by sharing data globally, with research and software development communities.

What’s available

Here you will find Cirrus, our LiDAR Dataset, and E.V.A, our Traffic Accident Research.


With the release of Cirrus, we provide a non-uniform distribution of LiDAR scanning patterns, with emphasis on long-range perception. Cirrus also includes corresponding camera images, uniform scanning patterns, and annotations.

We hope this technology will encourage further research into algorithmic development, for improved long-range LiDAR detection and classification.

Our goal is to continue sharing data with research and software development communities. We are excited to see what can be achieved. Explore Cirrus dataset

E.V.A Initiative

The Equal Vehicles for All (E.V.A) Initiative contains over 40 years worth of accident research. Our Traffic Accident Research Team has collectively studied more than 43,000 cars in real-life accidents, with 72,000 occupants, dating back to the 1970s.

This body of research has led to many of the safety innovations we see in our cars today, such as our Whiplash Injury Protection System (WHIPS), Side Impact Protection System (SIPS), and numerous child safety products.

We have now gathered more than 100 research papers, available for anyone to download. We believe this will lead to safer cars for everyone – regardless of gender and size. View E.V.A initiative
