LiDAR Deemed Heart Of Autonomous Driving

OPTIS, a virtual prototyping company, and LeddarTech partner on the industrial simulation of advanced LiDAR solutions. Reportedly, this collaboration allows transportation companies to virtually test and integrate their next generation of LiDAR developed around the LeddarCore integrated circuit (IC) before its actual release.

 

Perception of the environment is key to enabling autonomous driving capability. OPTIS simulation solutions are leveraged to virtually recreate cameras and LiDAR operations on autonomous cars and simulate their use in real life scenarios, allowing for safer, more cost-effective virtual tests of LiDAR systems developed with LeddarCore ICs.

LeddarTech’s advanced optical sensing technology is highly complementary with OPTIS’s SPEOS and VRX simulation capabilities. Using its light and laser modeling tools, OPTIS helps in the detailed design of LeddarCore-based LiDAR systems. Using real material measurements, OPTIS can validate the LiDAR model and simulate the correct response from the LiDAR in real-time through a virtual closed loop simulation with automated driving functions. The availability of the SPEOS sensors for LiDAR simulation smoothly follows the comprehensive product roadmap of LeddarTech to fully support the ongoing development of autonomous driving.
