LeddarTech launches LeddarSteer, a solid-state automotive digital beam control technology for LiDAR sensor developers

QUEBEC, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – LeddarTech®A world-class leader in accurate, reliable and versatile sensor technology for advanced driver assistance (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) systems, we are pleased to announce the official launch of LeddarSteer ™, a digital beam control solution developed for LiDAR and Smart Sensor Developers. suppliers of level 1-2 cars.

Digital beam control technology refers to changing the direction of laser pulses in LiDAR. The use of interchangeable liquid crystal elements and polarizing gratings allows you to direct light at different angles and at a certain wavelength to increase the field of view of LiDAR, maximizing its performance, thus providing digital orientation of the LiDAR beam.

The LeddarSteer digital beam control solution offers many benefits for LiDAR intelligent sensor developers and Tier 1-2 vendors, including:

  • Instant software-driven settings
    • Frame-by-frame adjustment
    • Pre-defined or special configuration
    • Simple implementation and user-friendly interface
    • Voltage change control
  • Several LiDAR programs
    • Compatible with a wide range of LiDAR architectures
    • Covers several uses
    • Adjustable field of view for various actions, including turns, exits, lane changes and slopes
    • The same LiDAR for driving on the highway or in the city
    • Reduces the number of sensors, and hence costs
  • Technology solid state car classfor significantly increased reliability

LeddarSteer can be perfectly integrated into the existing LiDAR architecture to expand the field of view, or integrated into a new system. The solution improves the signal-to-noise ratio by focusing laser power on the exact area of ​​interest, while reducing the size, cost and complexity of LiDAR components while maintaining high resolution.

“For more than a decade, LeddarTech has been at the forefront of developing sensor solutions that enable our customers to provide high-performance ADAS and AD sensors,” said Charles Charles Boulanger, Head of LeddarTech. “LeddarSteer is the only intelligent digital steering component designed for mass production that meets the requirements for speed, reliability, cost, size and performance required by the most stringent 3D sensing applications, and is compatible with standard car production processes,” he said. Boulanger.

About Leddar Tech

Founded in 2007, LeddarTech provides comprehensive integrated environmental sensing solutions that enable customers to solve critical problems of sensing, data aggregation and perception across the value chain. LeddarTech offers optimized and scalable perception solutions that support autonomy levels from 2 (driver assistance) to 5 (full autonomy) with LeddarVision ™, a raw sensory-perception fusion platform that generates detailed 3D environment models from a variety of configurations and configurations. types. LeddarTech also supports LiDAR manufacturers and automotive suppliers Tier 1 and Tier 2 by offering key technology units, such as LeddarSteer ™ or LeddarEngine цифро digital beam control, based on Leddar ™ LeddarTech technology and using proprietary signal collection and processing methods. feedback at a lower price. LeddarEngine is a highly integrated, scalable combination of SoC and LiDAR software that allows LiDAR developers and car suppliers 1-2 to develop their own LiDAR solutions. With more than 120 patents pending or pending, the company has contributed to several innovations related to advanced remote sensing applications for the automotive and mobile markets that improve driver assistance and autonomous driver systems.
