Company Profile


Founded in 2007 as a successful spin-off of Canada’s leading optics and photonics research institute, LeddarTech® is the developer, owner and supplier of the Leddar® technology, a unique Lidar technology that performs time-of-flight measurement using pulses from infrared light processed through innovative algorithms, accurately detecting a wide range of objects under various environmental conditions.

This novel Lidar technology delivers the best range-to-power ratio: all else being equal, Leddar delivers the highest range in the industry. And, since light sources and optics represent a significant portion of the cost of any optical sensor, Leddar’s superior sensitivity means more affordable optical components can be used to build the sensor to achieve the required level of performance.

Leddar is highly adaptable, serves multiple markets and comes in different formats, providing brand owners and OEMs with a solution that meets their needs while ensuring quick and simple integration.
