LeddarTech announced that Cavonix has selected the Leddar Pixell sensor technology for its autonomous shuttles and off-road trucking customers.
Cavonix is a tech start-up based in the United Kingdom that has developed a range of white-label autonomous control systems for several vehicle manufacturers and technology companies. Together with their parent company Aim Technologies, Cavonix has recently developed a range of new technologies for the autonomous shuttle, off-road, and agriculture sectors.
LeddarTech is a platform that delivers key ADAS & AD system components and customizable reference solutions and enables extensibility from L1 (camera & radar) to L5 (multiple sensor modalities including LiDAR) at optimal performance and cost.
Platform components include a modular sensor fusion and perception software stack, the LeddarEngine (SoCs and signal processing software) and LiDAR sensors like the Leddar Pixell, that was developed for the mobility market and exhibits the technology of the LeddarEngine.
“Cavonix chose LeddarTech’s technology because of its ability to deliver enhanced safety for our customers,” stated Steven Lake, Founder and CEO. “The robustness and reliability of LeddarTech’s solid-state technology meets today’s demanding mobility conditions and makes it the technology of choice toward preventing collisions in stop-and-go applications by eliminating dead zones left by other sensing technologies.” Mr. Lake continued: “At Cavonix, we are committed to providing robust solutions for real-world applications – science without the fiction.”
“We are honored that our LiDAR solutions were selected and trusted by Cavonix to support its autonomous shuttle and off-road trucking customers,” stated Frantz Saintellemy, President and COO of LeddarTech. Mr. Saintellemy continued, “What Cavonix has been able to achieve in a relatively short period is impressive, and we look forward to their future developments using LeddarTech technologies.” Mr. Saintellemy concluded that “making mobility applications safer is at the core of our strategy. Our technology offers the right balance of performance and cost-effectiveness and is ready for deployment today.”
