If you are a car maker, a tier-1 supplier or a system integrator, you’re well aware of the importance of selecting the right sensor technologies for ADAS applications and for the evolution towards autonomous driving. While Lidars are foreseen as a key enabler, multiple challenges come in the way of their successful mass market deployment, including size, costs, performance, reliability, and ease of integration to car components and systems. 

Join us as we will highlight the key trends in Lidar sensing technology for automotive applications, review the fundamentals of optical detection and ranging and explain the unique differentiators of Leddar, a next-gen Lidar technology delivering unmatched cost/performance ratio for automotive applications.

This session will showcase innovative Lidar solutions that are currently being packaged into ICs to produce a new generation of highly optimized Lidars (be it fixed beam, solid state, MEMs-based, or scanning) that meet the stringent automotive requirements. Examples of how Leddar-based sensors can be integrated into standard automotive components as well as results from road trials will also be presented.
