The New Standard for Automotive-Grade Solid-State LiDAR
The conception of automotive-grade LiDAR technology– including its industrialization and manufacturing ramp-up, as well as integration into production vehicles– is a highly complex undertaking requiring various expertise at all level of the automotive value chain.
Most emerging LiDAR technology providers decide to do it all on their own: They design and manufacture a finished product that is delivered to their automotive customers. This method places a significant burden on resources and the time-to-market while affecting overall project risks. This business model, while popular with startups, is poorly adapted to the reality of the automotive industry and subsequently, the requirements of production car design.
LeddarTech has adopted and proposes an entirely different approach, with a collaborative business model that establishes win-win partnerships by leveraging the core expertise at each level of the automotive value chain.
