Introducing the Leddar Pixell, a 3D flash LiDAR with 180-degree field of view specifically designed for ADAS and autonomous driving applications. The Leddar Pixell provides highly reliable detection of pedestrians, cyclists and other obstacles in the vehicle’s vicinity and is ideal for use in perception platforms that are meant to ensure the safety and protection of vulnerable road users (VRU).
The robust, solid-state Pixell compensates for the limitations of mechanical scanning LiDARs used for geo-positioning which generate blind areas that can reach several meters. The Pixell enables a comprehensive detection cocoon that surrounds the vehicle to provide complete blind spot coverage without dead zone in the illuminated field of view.
Leddar Pixell has already been adopted by leading autonomous vehicle providers in North America and Europe and is available today for commercial deployments. The Pixell has been recognized as a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honoree.
Deployments of detection systems on road vehicles require highly durable technologies to ensure high MTBF and to minimize downtime and operational expenditures, all the while providing reliable and secure vehicle operations.
Based on a robust, 100% solid-state LiDAR design with no moving parts and housed in a IP67 enclosure with automotive-grade connectors, the road-ready Leddar Pixell is delivers superior reliability which makes it ideally suited for autonomous vehicles deployments.
“Safety is at the heart of May Mobility’s core DNA, and the LeddarTech Cocoon LiDAR solution meets our requirements to ensure that our autonomous vehicles achieve the highest level of safety for our users.”
Steve Vozar, Chief Technology Officer, May Mobility
The Pixell uniquely answers the needs for comprehensive detection and ranging systems in vehicles transiting at inner-city speed and performing frequent stop-and-go such as autonomous shuttles, delivery vehicles, or robotaxis. The Pixell also provides a highly efficient detection solution to cover blind spots on large commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses.
