What Is Leddar™ Technology?
Leddar™ is LeddarTech’s proprietary LiDAR technology. Leddar provides advanced LiDAR signal acquisition and processing to deliver significant, distinct cost and performance advantages to the automotive and mobility market. It is light signal digitization and signal processing technology that expands the sampling rate and time resolution, recovers distance, reflectivity, and quality information of objects. Leddar provides reliable detection and ranging through mitigation of interference, environmental conditions, and other limiting conditions intrinsic to LiDAR sensors.
Leddar technology is at the core of our LiDAR Platform and is covered by more than 70 patents (granted or pending). The technology stems from more than a decade of Research & Development work, led by leading engineers and scientists in the field. It has been validated and optimized through various commercial deployments and 24/7 operation in challenging outdoor environments.
Optimized, Customized, and Scalable
Reducing the costs of LiDARs to meet commercial deployment requirements without compromising on the performance delivered is a challenge. In essence, the choice of technology and components used often have a direct impact on LiDAR sensor performance. Furthermore, increasing the light output power of a specific LiDAR design to increase the effective range generally comes with a higher price tag.
There is quite a bit that can be done to optimize LiDAR performance from a software perspective. More sensitivity and range can be achieved through highly efficient digital signal-processing algorithms, enabling leading LiDAR providers to reduce the overall cost of their solutions or enhance the performance of a given design.
Leddar Technology brings significant innovation and new possibilities for LiDAR through software. It also means Leddar is unattached to a specific mechanical design or optical technology, making Leddar a key enabler for any time-of-flight LiDAR. Therefore, Leddar is the technology of choice to enhance the performance-to-cost ratio of various LIDAR designs today serving the auto and mobility markets.
Leddar is a key enabler for any time-of-flight LiDARs,
with a scalable roadmap to support the future evolution and requirements of LiDAR Technologies.
