LeddarTech Launches the Leddar Pixell, a durable cocoon LiDAR for autonomous vehicles

US: LeddarTech, an industry leader in LiDAR technology who provides the most versatile and scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platform™ in the market, introduces the Leddar™ Pixell a 3D flash LiDAR powered by the LCA2 LeddarEngine , designed explicitly for autonomous vehicles.

Leddar™ Pixell provides highly dependable detection of pedestrians, cyclists and other obstacles in the vehicle’s surroundings and is suitable for perception platforms that are developed to ensure the safety and protection of passengers and Vulnerable Road Users (VRU). The Leddar Pixell is  an optimal detection cocoon solution for autonomous vehicle deployment and has already been adopted by over a dozen leading autonomous vehicle providers in North America and Europe.

Key Leddar Pixell Benefits:

  • Dependable object and VRU detection:
    • Full-coverage over 180° field of view
    • No dead zones or blind spots
  • Exceptional durability
    • 3D Flash, solid-state design with no moving parts
    • IP67 enclosure with impact-resistant windows and automotive-grade connectors

“Leddar Pixell compensates for the limitations of mechanical scanning LiDAR used for geo-positioning which generate blind areas that can reach several meters” stated Michael Poulin, Vice-President of Product Management at LeddarTech. “By enabling superior dependability of detection in the vehicle’s surroundings without any dead zones or blind spots, Leddar™ Pixell uniquely answers the urgent market requirements  to deploy autonomous vehicles with the highest degree of safety for passengers and road users. In addition to autonomous vehicles, the sensor is a highly efficient detection solution to cover critical blind spots on large commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses, contributing to increased road safety.”, continued Mr. Poulin.

Leddar™ Pixell integrates LeddarTech’s patented technology embedded in the state-of-the-art LCA2 LeddarEngineTM, which consists of a highly integrated LeddarCore™ SoC and LeddarSP digital signal processing software. LeddarTech also offers the LeddarEngine to automotive LiDAR developers and other LiDAR makers, accelerating the availability of high quality, tailored LiDAR solutions to a broad and ever-growing range of LiDAR applications and markets.
