Award recipients are widely recognized and respected by the international automotive industry. The awards cover a wide range of companies who support China’s automotive industry, including large and medium-sized automobile companies, vehicle manufacturers, Tier 1-2 suppliers, universities, and scientific research institutions.
Having made significant contributions to promoting automotive technologies and innovative activities, these awards have tremendous influence and significant standing not only with China’s automobile industry but the international scientific community as well. Founded in 2010, Shenzhen’s Automotive Electronics Industry Association (AEIA) is a not-for-profit organization consisting of auto electronics and related parts enterprises in Shenzhen currently consisting of over 500 members across China.
The Leddar Pixell is the most robust solid-state LiDAR on the market. This sensor provides a 180-degree horizontal field of view (FoV) and can provide 360-degree coverage of a vehicle when four modules are used. The Leddar Pixell offers best-in-class shock and vibration resistance meeting ISO 16750-3 requirements and compliant to the SAE J1455 standard for heavy dust intrusion, positioning the Leddar Pixell for use in the industrial vehicle markets requiring robustness and durability. Also, the Leddar Pixell is IP67 certified and provides an MTBF of more than 148,000 hours, which is equivalent to ten times that of scanning solutions.
The Leddar Pixell is ideal for shuttles, robotaxis, ADVs, and other off-road vehicles used in construction, agriculture, and mining applications.
“LeddarTech is very honored to receive the Outstanding & Innovative Product Award for the Leddar Pixell by Shenzhen’s Automotive Electronics Industry Association (SZAEIA),” commented Dr. David Cheskis, Vice-President of Product Management at LeddarTech. “The Leddar Pixell was first recognized with an award at CES 2020, and this award from such a prestigious organization as the SZAEIA is significant.” Dr. Cheskis continued, “LeddarTech is committed to developing products and solutions that enable greater safety while accelerating ADAS and AD. The Leddar Pixell, which is being deployed globally, is an example of our innovative and pioneering product strategy.”
