Quebec City, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – LeddarTech®the global leader in precision, robust and versatile sensor technology for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS systems) and autonomous driving systems (AD systems), is pleased to announce the official launch of LeddarSteer™, a digital beam routing solution designed for developers of smart LiDAR sensors. and Tier 1-2 car suppliers.

Digital beam guidance technology refers to the change in the direction of the laser pulses in LiDAR. The use of an overlay of alternating liquid crystal cells and polarizing grids allows light to be directed at different angles and at a specific wavelength to maximize the field of view of LiDAR while maximizing its performance, thus ensuring the digital orientation of the LiDAR beam.

The LeddarSteer digital packet routing solution provides a range of benefits to LiDAR smart sensor developers and Tier 1-2 vendors, including:

  • The program controls instant adjustments
    • Frame by frame adjustment
    • Predefined or custom configuration
    • Easy to implement and user friendly interface
    • Voltage control
  • Multiple LiDAR applications
    • Compatible with a variety of LiDAR architectures
    • Covers multiple use cases
    • Adjustable field of view for various actions including turns, exits, lane changes and grades
    • Same as LiDAR for highway or city driving
    • Reduces the number of sensors and thus costs
  • Technique solid state Auto gradeSignificantly increased reliability

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

“For more than a decade, LeddarTech has been at the forefront of developing sensor solutions that enable our customers to deliver high-performance ADAS and AD sensors,” said Charles Boulanger, LeddarTech’s Managing Director. “LeddarSteer is the only intelligent digital steering component designed for mass production that meets the speed, reliability, cost, size and performance demands of the most stringent 3D sensing applications compatible with standard vehicle manufacturing processes,” concluded Mr. Boulanger.

About Leader Tech

Founded in 2007, LeddarTech provides comprehensive, integrated environmental sensing solutions that enable customers to solve critical sensing, data integration, and perception issues across the value chain. LeddarTech offers enhanced, scalable visualization solutions that support levels of autonomy 2 (driver assistance) through 5 (full autonomy) with LeddarVision™, a fusion platform of raw sensor and perception data that generates a detailed 3D environmental model from a variety of configurations and sensor types. . LeddarTech also supports LiDAR manufacturers and Tier 1 and Tier 2 vehicle suppliers by offering key technology blocks such as LeddarSteer™ digital packet routing or LeddarEngine™, which is built on LeddarTech’s Leddar™ technology that uses proprietary signal acquisition and processing technologies to generate a richer, cleaner return signal at a cost. less. LeddarEngine is a highly integrated, scalable LiDAR software and SoC suite that enables LiDAR developers and Tier 1-2 vehicle suppliers to design their own LiDAR solutions. With more than 120 patents granted or pending, the company has contributed to numerous innovations related to advanced remote sensing applications for the automotive and mobility market that enhance the capabilities of its driver and driver assistance systems.
