UK technology company Delphi Automotive is to partner with LeddarTech, a Canadian company developing solid-state LiDAR technology to collaborate on the development of a low-cost, corner LiDAR solution. They say the core technology can be developed rapidly and allows for easy vehicle integration.
According to Glen De Vos, Delphi senior vice president and chief technology officer, there is increasing customer demand for solid-state LiDAR as the time to market for autonomous vehicles is being accelerated. "LeddarTech technology has the right level of discrimination and range for LiDAR sensing solutions placed around the corners of the vehicle," he says.
"Delphi has extensive sensor, radar and systems engineering knowledge and experience to complement LeddarTech's unique, patented sensing technology," said Charles Boulanger, LeddarTech chief executive officer. "We are glad to collaborate closely with Delphi to develop and rapidly commercialise a solid-state LiDAR solution that provides the best performance at the lowest cost."
