QUEBEC CITY, Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LeddarTech®, a global leader in providing the most flexible, robust and accurate ADAS and AD software technology, is pleased to announce the launch of the LeddarVision™ Front-View-E (LVF-E) and LeddarVision™ Front-View-H (LVF-H), two distinct comprehensive low-level fusion and perception software stacks that optimally combine sensor modalities for Level 2/2+ ADAS applications achieving a 5* NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 rating.
LeddarTech addresses the challenges Tier 1-2 suppliers and OEMs struggle with when developing Level 2/2+ ADAS applications, such as solving safety issues and finding scalable fusion and perception software that offers high performance at a low cost. The LeddarVision Front-View (LVF) family of automotive software products, developed by LeddarTech, addresses these challenges.
LVF-E (LeddarVision Front-Entry): Created for customers seeking to develop entry-level ADAS safety and highway assistance L2/L2+ applications, LVF-E is a comprehensive front-view fusion and perception stack for entry-level ADAS L2/L2+ highway assist and 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022. LeddarTech’s low-level fusion (LLF) technology pushes the performance envelope, doubling the effective range of the sensors and enabling for the first time a solution with only a single 1.2-megapixel 120-degree front camera and two short-range front corner radars in a 1V2R configuration. Low-cost sensing, together with efficient implementation on the TDA4L platform, achieves the lowest system cost for L2/L2+ entry-level ADAS. B-sample is planned for Q2 2023, targeting vehicle SOP in 2025/6.
LVF-H (LeddarVision Front-High): The premium companion fusion and perception stack in the front-view product family. With sensor configuration extended to 1V5R based on a single 3-megapixel 120-degree camera, single front medium-range radar and four short-range corner radars, the stack extends the perception support to highway assist applications, including 160 km/h adaptive cruise control, 200-meter range and semi-automated lane change. It also enhances the NCAP 2025 support for overtaking/ reverse/dooring scenarios. Furthermore, with efficient implementation on the TDA4L platform and a single Hailo-8 deep-learning accelerator, low-cost sensing achieves economic front-view L2/L2+ premium ADAS. B-sample is planned for Q3 2023, targeting vehicle SOP in 2026.
The LeddarVision Front-View (LVF) family of products is designed to meet the needs of their customers:
High-Performance and Cost-Effective
Flexible and Scalable
Interested customers can contact LeddarTech for “A” samples of the LVF-E and LVF-H products.
“I am excited to announce our newest sensor fusion and perception products to support entry-level to premium ADAS highway assist Level 2/2+ applications,” stated Mr. Charles Boulanger, CEO of LeddarTech. “The market’s need for a high-performance sensor fusion and perception product while also being cost-effective, flexible and scalable and has never been greater, and our LVF family of products addresses that need,” Mr. Boulanger continued. “Our mission at LeddarTech is to improve safety and the quality of life by enabling ADAS and AD applications, and this is accomplished with the release of these two products that achieve 5* NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 ratings.” Mr. Boulanger concluded: “I look forward to announcing additional products in 2023 that will continue to meet the needs of the industry and improve the quality of people’s lives.”
LeddarTech’s LeddarVision LVF-E and LVF-H software products will be highlighted at CES 2023, January 5-8 in Las Vegas, within LeddarTech’s booth # 5475, LVCC West Hall.
