LeddarTech Successfully Defends Its LiDAR Intellectual Property


LeddarTech, an industry provider of versatile and scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platform in the market, has announced that its patent infringement case against Phantom Intelligence was settled favorably in the Federal Court of Canada.

In December 2015 LeddarTech challenged Phantom Intelligence for the illegal use of its patented LiDAR sensing technology protected by Canadian Patent No. 2,710,212, entitled “Detection and Ranging Methods and Systems” and relating to systems and methods for acquiring an optical signal and converting it into a digital trace. The patent is a core driver of LeddarTech's long-established intellectual property and is practiced in all of its LiDAR sensing products deployed in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) applications in the auto and mobility sectors. The settlement, the amount, terms and conditions of which are confidential, was agreed under a court-sponsored mediation process following which Phantom Intelligence became a customer of LeddarTech.

“LeddarTech is proud of its years of innovation as a pioneer in LiDAR technology for ADAS and AD,” stated Pierre Olivier, Chief Technology Officer at LeddarTech. “We have always been confident that we would be successful in the defense of our intellectual property, and we will continue to be vigilant in protecting it.” continued Mr. Olivier. LeddarTech values the important contributions of its engineers and scientists to its intellectual property (72 patents: 52 granted and 20 pending) and intends to continue monitoring for possible infringements of its proprietary LiDAR sensing technology.
