QUEBEC CITY — LeddarTech®, a company involved in providing ADAS and AD sensing technology, announces the availability of a completely new version of the LeddarEngine software to enable and accelerate LiDAR sensor development.

The LeddarEngine tries to set a new standard for developing highly integrated and flexible solid-state LiDAR solutions optimized for high-volume production. This purported solution comprises the LeddarCore™ LCA3 system on chip (SoC) and LeddarSP™ signal processing.

This new version specifically introduces several new integration tiers for the LeddarEngine software and compatibility with new hardware platforms. LeddarTech is introducing a separation of the control, signal processing and point-cloud processing, which can be used independently or in combination, enabling customers to maintain greater control over their final solution.

LiDAR developers that presently have signal processing toolchains implemented for their current products will benefit from using only the control kernel for easier and faster integration of the LeddarCore into their next-generation products. Tier 1-2s, system integrators and new LiDAR makers will still benefit from the complete offering by leveraging LeddarTech’s proprietary signal processing and expertise.
