LeddarEngine Fundamentals

APPLICATION NOTE – The LCA2 or LCA3 LeddarCore works in parallel with the LeddarSP™ software library, which runs on a separate microcontroller (MCU). Advanced data analysis leading to high-accuracy and high-range distance measurements is performed by the LeddarSP within the MCU. The LeddarSP application programming interface (API) allows data access to any custom application co-implemented in the MCU.
