LeddarTech unveils LeddarVision for advanced highway assist in ADAS

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – LeddarTech® announces the availability and unveiling of the LeddarVision™ Surround-View (LVS-2+) at CES 2024. The LVS-2+ was developed on the Nvidia Orin embedded system, with the flexibility to be ported to other embedded platforms.

Engineers designed the LVS-2+ to power premium L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance and attain the coveted 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 safety rating. LVS-2+ follows the LeddarVision Front-Entry (LVF-E) comprehensive AI-based low-level fusion and perception software. It becomes the second AI-based low-level fusion and perception software product to demonstrate maturity on the embedded system.

Born from the innovative LeddarVision AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception software architecture, the LVS-2+:

  • Masterfully expands upon the capabilities of the LVF product family through its flexibility to adapt to different sensor configurations. Moreover, the LVS-2+ seamlessly evolves from the foundational 1VxR sensor configuration to the advanced 5V5R configuration.
  • Is the first AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception product that eliminates the need for side cameras typically implemented in the legacy 11V5R configuration.
  • Achieves surround-view perception using a 5V5R sensor architecture. This will accelerate mass deployment of premium L2/L2+ ADAS by significantly lowering hardware and system implementation costs. This transformation equips vehicles with improved support for vital functions such as traffic jam assist (TJA) and highway assist (HWA). It also provides a vastly enhanced speed range for adaptive cruise control (ACC).
  • Delivers a comprehensive fusion and perception software stack supporting premium surround-view L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance.

“The LeddarVision LVS-2+ marks a paradigm shift, delivering unparalleled clarity, conviction and credibility,” stated Frantz Saintellemy, President and CEO of LeddarTech. “The demonstration of LVS-2+ on the embedded system is igniting a tremendous opportunity for OEMs and Tier 1-2 suppliers. This also empowers them to accelerate the development of cost-effective perception solutions, supporting reduced development costs. Ultimately, this translates into a decisive edge in today’s competitive arena. LeddarTech has been engaged with various lead customers to validate and confirm that the LVS-2+ offers a strategic advantage. Moreover, this advantage amplifies safety and efficiency in shaping L2/L2+ ADAS applications. This monumental leap aligns seamlessly with industry objectives, including the pursuit of a 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 rating, making it a transformative stride in automotive technology,” Mr. Saintellemy concluded.

LeddarTech invites automotive OEMs, Tier 1s and analysts to visit their booth at CES 2024 in Las Vegas to meet with the team and experience their unique LeddarVision automotive software technology
