LeddarTech Announces Volume Production Of The Leddar Pixell Cocoon LiDAR With Manufacturing Partner Clarion Malaysia


LeddarTech, in LiDAR technology who provides the most versatile and scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platform, announces it will begin volume production of the Leddar Pixell Cocoon LiDAR Module with their selected partner Clarion Malaysia, a member of Faurecia Clarion Electronics, a business Group of Faurecia.

The Leddar Pixell is an award-winning 3D solid-state flash LiDAR with a field-of-view of 180-degree designed and tested for off-road, shuttles, robotaxis, delivery, commercial and heavy industry vehicles in addition to other robotic and automated applications where solid-state LiDAR is the best 3D sensing option. The Leddar Pixell provides highly reliable detection of pedestrians, cyclists and other obstacles in the vehicle's vicinity and is ideal for use in perception platforms that are meant to ensure the safety and protection of vulnerable road users (VRU). The Leddar Pixell is an optimal detection cocoon solution for autonomous vehicle deployment and has already been adopted by leading autonomous vehicle providers in North America, Asia and Europe.

Leddar Pixell integrates LeddarTech's patented technologies embedded in the state-of-the-art LCA2 LeddarEngine. The LCA2 uses LeddarTech's LeddarSP (signal processing software) to produce raw LiDAR data such as distance, position, and intensity of echoes. LCA2 is suitable for a wide range of applications and can be produced in high volumes for rapid mass-market deployment and is ideal for solid-state LiDARs used in AD/ADAS.

“At LeddarTech, we specialize in solid-state LiDAR technologies with open architecture, with more than a decade of delivering LiDAR solutions to customers operating in various harsh environmental conditions demanding 24/7 continuous operation” stated Mr. Charles Boulanger CEO of LeddarTech. “Clarion Malaysia has a world-class reputation and is recognized as an exceptionally reliable, high-quality, leading Tier-1 supplier for the automotive industry, and we are pleased to announce this partnership for the production of the Leddar Pixell. The large-scale production of the Leddar Pixell will enable us to quickly support customers around the world with this highly in-demand cocoon LiDAR solution. Our customers demand the highest quality, and with Clarion Malaysia as our partner, we are confident that we will exceed our customers' expectations “concluded Mr. Boulanger.

“Clarion Malaysia is delighted to partner with LeddarTech for the production of the Leddar Pixell. As a leader in LiDAR technologies, LeddarTech stands out in the industry with their automotive and mobility LiDAR platform, and specifically the LCA2 and LCA3 LeddarEngine open-architecture solutions which are essential for the development of cost-effective and scalable solid-state LiDAR solutions for the mobility and automotive industry.” Stated Mr. TK Tan, Managing Director of Clarion Malaysia. “We have a deep understanding of the automotive industry and the high standards that are expected in manufacturing, and we look forward to this partnership with LeddarTech to bring the Pixell to the market with our world-class automotive manufacturing expertise.” Mr. T.K. Tan concluded.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
