LeddarTech Launches the Leddar Pixell, an Exceptionally Dependable and Durable Cocoon LiDAR for Autonomous Vehicles

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.

The Leddar Pixell has been shortlisted for the ”Best in Class Perception System” award by Autosens. The winners will be announced on September 18 in Brussels.

Leddar Pixell compensates for the limitations of mechanical scanning LiDAR used for geo-positioning which generate blind areas that can reach several meters. 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.

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.  

LeddarTech will be officially unveiling Leddar™ Pixell in Canada at CAV19 Canada in Ottawa on Sept. 10th, in  Europe at Autosens Brussels from September 17-19 and in the  US at Automotive LiDAR 2019 on September 25th-26th in Detroit, Michigan.
