Luminar Technologies, Inc. is transforming automotive safety and autonomy by delivering lidar and associated software that meets the industry’s stringent performance, safety, and economic requirements.

Luminar tests sensors and systems in live public traffic, which includes people and vehicles. We record data during testing to improve our product, with the ultimate goal of making cars "uncrashable". The data we record during testing is high-resolution lidar data from our own sensors, as well as imagery from documentation cameras that is used by our engineers to understand details about the recorded scenario.

We value data privacy as much as we do road safety. We vouch that we will never try to identify any person or vehicle in the data we record, nor sell or provide access to the data to anyone who does. In a monthly inspection cycle, we review all the data we collect and only keep the data we absolutely need for product development purposes. We also fully support deleting data containing you or your vehicle, should you wish to do so.

If you have questions about what we do with data collected, or if you would like us to delete recordings that you think may include you or your vehicle, please send an email to If you would like recordings to be deleted, please specify the time and place when and where the data may have been recorded.
