A market leader in LiDAR technology, LeddarTech has announced collaborating with its Ecosystem partner Renesas Electronics to put forth its award winning invention, Leddar Pixell at the AV20 Silicon Valley Conference at The Pullman San Francisco Bay from 26th to 28th February 2020. The conference has been claimed to be a premier exchange for industry leaders, customers, engineers, solution providers, and academia to share, learn, and connect on the current roadblocks, innovative developments, regulations reform, and future trends in the industry. The companies have come together to showcase Leddar's groundbreaking invention in LiDAR which is a 3D solid state cocoon LiDAR designed for autonomous shuttles, delivery vehicles and robotaxis. Leddar Pixell constitutes of LCA2 LeddarEngine, which is apparently the reason for the collaboration of LeddarTech and Renesas Electronics. Both the companies have been immensely working closely for the design and development of the LCA2 SoC, which when merged with LeddarSP signal processing library would create LCA2 LeddarEngine, that sets the standard for design of customizable and integrated solid state LiDAR solutions. The LeddarEngine has been built to suit the ADAs and AV applications for passenger car and mobility markets. It has been claimed that Renesas, in addition to LeddarTech's technologies, would showcase R-Car V3H SoC that offers a combination of high computer vision performance and artificial intelligence processing at comparatively low power levels. Moreover, it would provide an optimized embedded solution for automotive front cameras in autonomous vehicles combined with LiDAR Obstacle Detection Software. Speaking on the collaboration and exhibition, the VP of Product Management at LeddarTech, Michael Poulin reportedly quoted that Renesas has been a potential strategic partner of the company for several years now and it is pleased to continue to build on the partnership again for AV20 Conference. He further adds that LeddarTech looks forward to demonstrating its latest products at the event. Meanwhile, Tomomitsu Maoka, the Senior VP, Deputy General Manager of Automotive Solution Business Unit at Renesas cited that LeddarTech is a globally renowned company operating in LiDAR technology and Renesas looks forward to continuing its relationship with the company to develop even more ADAS and AD vehicles worldwide.
