Operators of heavy vehicles and machinery have to accomplish complex tasks in challenging environments, often dealing with multiple sources of distractions that may temporarily affect their attention. Accidents involving industrial and commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses and forklifts, in addition to other construction equipment, remain a serious concern. Driving assistance and active safety functions are part of the solution.
Implementing Leddar-based LiDARs as part of a collision avoidance system provides a robust, reliable solution to detect the presence of still or moving obstacles in the vehicle’s way, as well as reliable distance measurements for turn assist, blind spot detection or traffic assist solutions. Leddar sensor modules are also used as part of navigation systems for autonomous shuttles, providing robust detection capabilities in any type of environment or weather conditions, from close-proximity to long-range operations.
