Canadian lidar technology developer LeddarTech have been working with their investor Osram on the “Percept” lidar platform; Osram are developing their first flexible solid state lidar, focusing on mid- to long-range sensing and targeting the automotive mass market.
The Percept lidar will comprise Osram’s laser emitters and LeddarTech’s processing software. Osram aim to develop a lidar with the measuring approach of ToF. The platform will serve long- and mid-range applications alike, just by changing optics and software. Osram say the 905nm EEL based Percept platform will allow affordable pricing due to high integration.
Osram bought a 25.1% stake in LeddarTech in 2017.
