LeddarTech, a provider of auto and mobility LiDAR platform, has entered into a strategic collaboration with First Sensor AG, a developer of advanced sensor solutions that is also now joining the Leddar Ecosystem.
LeddarTech, with the support of First Sensor and other industry leaders, is developing an open and comprehensive LiDAR platform option for OEMs and Tier1s. The platform provides the following benefits:
• A more complete and comprehensive set of solutions that addresses the requirements of OEMs and Tier1s;
• Common architectures as well as standardized components that ensure lower risk, improved production volume scalability, cost optimization and flexibility to address multiple LiDAR applications;
• A scalable platform roadmap ensuring increased performance and cost optimization;
• The ability to leverage leading and complementary IP, expertise, and support from technology leaders.
Overall, these benefits aim increase the success for customers and provide the safest, most viable path to volume deployment for ADAS & AD applications.
LeddarTech and First Sensor will initiate this collaboration with the development of a LiDAR Evaluation Kit, demonstrating a technical concept in a working LiDAR and creating a tool for Tier 1s and system integrators to develop their own LiDAR based on LeddarEngine technology, First Sensor APDs, and additional ecosystem partners’ technologies, products, and services. The evaluation kit will be primarily targeting automotive front LiDAR applications for high-speed highway driving such as Highway Pilot and Traffic Jam Assist.
