Autonomous vehicles such as shuttles, robotaxis, delivery vehicles and large commercial vehicles navigating in urban environments need to be fully aware of their surroundings to operate safely. They need to detect and track other vehicles and obstacles and, crucially, vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, to avoid collisions.
The advantage of this solid state 3D flash LiDAR sensor, which has no moving parts, is that it does not have the limitations of mechanical scanning LiDARs which generate blind areas that can reach several metres. Within its’ wide Field of View the Leddar Pixell provides complete coverage of the area being scanned without any blind spots. The solid state design provides superior durability, is vibration and shock resistant even in harsh conditions, and a high Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF).
Robust and reliable with a 180° Field of View, the Pixell has been specifically designed by LeddarTech for ADAS and autonomous driving applications. It is optimised for use in perception platforms that are meant to enhance detection capabilities of vulnerable road users (VRU).
Powered by the LCA2 LeddarEngine, the data provided by the Leddar Pixell allows for object tracking and identification of possible collisions based on object position, velocity and directionality, without overwhelming the vehicle’s CPU with massive amounts of unnecessary data.
The Leddar Pixell is CE marked to provide assurance that it meets all required European legislation.
