LiangDao was once again awarded the "TOP 100 Innovator" award
Recently, the "TOP 100 Innovator 2023" list was officially released in Germany. LiangDao was once again awarded the "TOP 100 Innovator" award for its outstanding performance in innovation management and innovative product culture. This is the second time in a row that LiangDao Intelligence, as the first fully domestic-owned autonomous driving enterprise, has been ranked among the top innovative companies.
The TOP 100 Innovator award was established in 1993 and has been held for 30 consecutive sessions. It is the only competition in Germany that evaluates corporate innovation management and innovation achievements. It is also the most important and authoritative award for assessing the innovation capabilities of small and medium-sized enterprises in Germany. The award values not only a company's innovative products but also its overall innovation approach and development potential.
The judging panel of TOP 100 is composed of well-known experts from business, science, media, and politics. Any participating company must pass a scientific selection process and be evaluated by the judging panel. The scientific process was established by Professor Nikolaus Franke and his team, international leading innovation researchers, and includes more than 100 indicators from five levels, including "innovation-promoting management, innovation atmosphere, innovative processes and organization, external orientation/open innovation, and innovation success." The judging criteria are highly professional, rigorous, and strict.
This award is the result of the joint efforts and contributions of all LiangDao Intelligence employees in China and Germany. At the same time, it is also a great recognition of LiangDao Intelligence's sustainable innovation management capabilities.
Collaborative Innovation between China and Germany: Practice of Innovative Product and Service
Lidar-based technology firm LiangDao Intelligent was founded in China and Germany in 2017, targeting the Lidar industry. With an innovative mindset and management style, LiangDao has customized and developed China's first pure solid-state Lidar - LDSatellite™, mature and efficient Lidar testing and verification solutions - LDCompass®, and the industry-leading road-side perception smart transportation solution - LDTelescope®. LiangDao offers a comprehensive software and hardware Lidar product and service system that meets the diverse needs of both local markets.
In Germany, LiangDao Intelligent quickly became a global supplier for the Volkswagen Group within three months of its founding, thanks to its advanced technology and rare Chinese-German background. In the past two years, LiangDao Germany has flourished, securing production cooperation orders with Magna and establishing close cooperation with well-known enterprises such as Mercedes-Benz Group and Deutsche Telekom. LiangDao's road-side perception solution has been successfully deployed in many smart city construction projects in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Ingolstadt, and other German cities.
LiangDao Intelligent has paved its own innovative path of development in China and Germany.
Beyond Vision: Encouraging Sharing and Co-creation
At LiangDao, every employee is seen as the hope that drives the company forward, known as "the hope of LiangDao".
