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. In 2020, the Pixell has been recognized as a CES Innovation Award Honoree and has received “Outstanding & Innovative Product Award” by the Shenzhen Automotive Electronics Industry Association.
Successfully Tested Against Key Industry Requirements
Deployments of detection systems on any type of vehicle require highly durable technologies to ensure high MTBF and to minimize downtime and operational expenditures, all the while ensuring reliable and secure vehicle operation.
Based on a robust, 100% solid-state LiDAR design, the heavy-duty Leddar Pixell LiDAR delivers superior lifespan, which makes it ideally suited for ADAS and autonomous vehicle deployments in any operating domain, including public transit, commercial delivery, long-haul-trucking, construction, mining, and military.
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 and to enable automation on large commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses as well as on off-road vehicles of any size.
