LeddarTech Releases Production Samples of the LeddarVision Front-Entry (LVF-E) Comprehensive Low-Level Fusion and Perception Software Featuring the TI TDA4VM-Q1 Processor for L2/L2+ ADAS Applications
LeddarTech’s LVF-E’s “B” sample featuring an embedded ECU introduces an unprecedented industry-first solution that brings high performance and reliability of low-level fusion to the entry-level ADAS market.
QUEBEC, June 28, 2023 — LeddarTech®, an automotive software company that provides patented disruptive low-level sensor fusion and perception software technology for ADAS and AD, is pleased to announce that “B” samples of its LeddarVision™ entry-level ADAS L2/L2+ highway assist and 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 low-level fusion and perception software stack optimized for the TDA4VM-Q1 (8 TOPS) processor from Texas Instruments are now available.
The LeddarVision Front-Entry (LVF-E) product, formally released in late 2022, was designed for customers seeking to develop entry-level ADAS safety and highway assistance L2/L2+ applications. Introducing the “B” samples brings exciting advancements to LVF-E powered by a Texas Instruments (TI) TDA4VM-Q1 processor. By leveraging these “B” samples, LVF-E delivers substantial cost and performance benefits for low-level fusion, paving the way for accelerated L2/L2+ systems adoption. In addition, this breakthrough effectively reduces the sensor and processor requirements, making it more accessible and efficient for widespread implementation. The LeddarVision Front-Entry solution also marks the first design where TI’s highly integrated and cost-efficient TDA4x processor family has been featured in a low-level fusion solution.
- Higher Performance:
- Doubles the effective range of the sensors, allowing high-performing ADAS targeting 5-star NCAP 2025 and GSR 2022 standards with lower sensor and system costs.
- Lower Costs:
- Reduced hardware requirements: An industry-first being enabled with a single 1 to 2-megapixel 120-degree front camera and two short-range front corner radars in a 1V2R configuration.
- Efficient implementation on the TDA4VM-Q1 platform achieves one of the lowest system costs for L2/L2+ entry-level ADAS without sacrificing system performance.
