May 17, 2022

The Lucid Air is equipped with up to 32 on-board sensors, including long range Lidar radar, short-range radar, surround view monitoring cameras, front multifunction camera, rear view camera and ultrasonic sensors. These cameras are used for the DreamDrive ADAS, advanced driver-assistance system, technology and will be used for future DreamDrive Pro capabilities.

Below you will find the types of sensors, cameras and radars on the Lucid Air, the position of those sensors, cameras and radars, the features and limitations of those ADAS components.

When you look at the car, you can spot some of the cameras and sensors on the exterior. But here are two diagrams that show you where these sensors, cameras and radars are located on the Lucid Air.
