LeddarTech launches Leddar Sight, a robust, a 2D solid-state LiDAR sensor.
This LiDAR is housed in a weatherproof enclosure and uses flash illumination to deliver detection and range of objects and obstacles in its entire field of view, without any moving parts.
Based on the Leddar M16 2D flash LiDAR module family’s, the Leddar Sight leverages a 100% solid-state design.
Tested for shock and vibration, Leddar Sight features a weatherproof casing (IP67/IP69 rated) that resists dust ingress, immersion, and pressurized water streams.
The Leddar Sight 2D flash LiDAR provides a detection and measurement capabilities for indoor applications such as industrial automation and various outdoor applications such as autonomous navigation, obstacle detection, collision avoidance, precision maneuvering, speed enforcement, and automated tolling.
Thanks to its enclosure, M12 connector, and various FoV options, the sensor can be integrated into prototypes and used to collect field data for software development and is available in volume today to customers, system integrators, and resellers for commercial deployments.
