Over the next 20 years, as cars capabilities evolve from active safety to autonomous driving, LiDARs are seen as becoming the largest segment of automotive detection and ranging sensors, complementing or replacing radars and cameras.
Leddar technology holds the key that enable the development of low-cost, automotive-grade LiDARs that meet the cost, size, robustness, and performance requirements of automotive deployments.
LEDDAR FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS
Leddar answers affordable LiDAR needs in passive and active safety systems
Leddar delivers raw data measurements which make them perfectly suited for advanced sensor fusion integrations
Leddar overcomes limitations of other sensors, prevents system failures and detection errors, and improves detection in various environmental
360-degree point-cloud for autonomous driving
As requirements for more resolution and performance increase, so is Leddar’s, with a technology roadmap to support 360° and high resolution detection
LEDDAR SENSOR INTEGRATION
Flexible, versatile LeddarCore IC sensor technology enables OEMs, Tier-1 component and subsystem providers and system integrators to develop proprietary, differentiated LiDARs for ADAS/AD solutions. Leddar-based sensor modules provide easy integration to standard automotive components and assemblies.
A SOLID-STATE LIDAR IC ROADMAP TOWARDS AUTONOMOUS DRIVING
Our roadmap for the next-generation of LeddarCore ICs aim to enable the design of affordable LiDARs for all levels of autonomous driving, including the capability to map the environment over 360-degrees around the vehicle.
The chipsets’ raw data output will make them perfectly suited for advanced sensor fusion solutions which combine data from various types of sensors to provide a holistic perceptual mapping of the vehicle’s surrounding:
– Integration into ADAS and autonomous functions, where solid-state LiDAR replaces or complements camera and/or radar
– High density 3D point cloud LiDAR for higher levels of autonomous driving
– Support for both flash / beam steering LiDARs (i.e.: MEMS mirrors)
– Ranges reaching 250m, field of view up to 140º, and up to 480,000 points per second (with a resolution down to 0.25º both horizontal and vertical)
THE ADAS/AD SENSOR MARKET
The global market for ADAS technology is forecast to grow rapidly to over $60 billion in revenue by 2020. Analysts expect LiDARs to become a central element of the autonomous car’s sensor suite, alongside existing technologies such as cameras and radars, ensuring robust sensing redundancy and increasing overall system reliability.
