LeddarTech, a global provider of Level 1-5 ADAS and AD sensing technology, has just launched Leddar™ Sight, a robust, cost-effective 2D solid-state LiDAR sensor.
This LiDAR is housed in a weatherproof enclosure. It uses flash illumination to deliver continuous, accurate detection and range of objects and obstacles in its entire field of view, without any moving parts.
Leddar Sight has been developed to answer the stringent needs of mobility, ITS, and industrial system developers for reliable, durable LiDAR sensing in the most challenging environments.
Based on the Leddar M16 2D flash LiDAR module family’s field-proven reliability, the Leddar Sight leverages a fully solid-state design for ultimate robustness. Tested for shock and vibration to meet the most demanding commercial and industrial applications requirements, Leddar Sight features a weatherproof casing (IP67/IP69 rated) that resists dust ingress, immersion, and pressurized water streams.
The Leddar Sight 2D flash LiDAR provides precise detection and measurement capabilities for indoor applications such as industrial automation and various outdoor applications such as autonomous navigation, obstacle detection, collision avoidance, precision maneuvering, speed enforcement, and automated tolling. Thanks to its robust enclosure, M12 connector, and various FoV options, the sensor can be rapidly integrated into prototypes and used to collect field data for software development and is available in volume today to customers, system integrators, and resellers for commercial deployments.
The Leddar Sight is an ideal LiDAR solution for shuttles, robotaxis, ADVs, commercial trucks, buses, industrial vehicles, mobile robotics, and intelligent transportation systems.
Leddar Sight 2D Solid-State LiDAR key features
400,000 hours MTBF, up to 26X longer than mechanical LiDARs
Meets stringent shock and vibration standards
IP67/IP69 rated, impact-resistant enclosure
High EMC standards
Wide operating temperature range
“This new offering in our 2D flash LiDAR portfolio addresses a critical need expressed by our customers for a reliable, affordable LiDAR sensor that can operate in challenging conditions where shocks, vibrations, water and dust ingress, and wide operating temperature ranges are key concerns,” said Daniel Aitken, vice president of global marketing, communications, and product management from LeddarTech. “Unlike mechanical LiDARs, Leddar Sight uses a proven solid-state flash design which delivers much longer inherent MTBF, and its robust casing makes it field-ready for 24/7 operation in the harshest commercial and industrial settings.”
