Quebec /PRNewswire/ - LeddarTech® an automotive software company that provides patented disruptive AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception software technology for ADAS, AD and parking applications, announces the availability and unveiling of theLeddarVision™ Surround-View (LVS-2+)atCES 2024. The LVS-2+was developed on the Nvidia Orin embedded system, with the flexibility to be ported to other embedded platforms.
The LVS-2+is engineered to power premium L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance and achieve the coveted 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 safety rating. The LVS-2+follows the LeddarVision Front-Entry (LVF-E) comprehensive AI-based low-level fusion and perception software in becoming the second AI-based low-level fusion and perception software product to demonstrate maturity on the embedded system.
Born from the innovativeLeddarVisionAI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception software architecture, the LVS-2+:
- Masterfully expands upon the capabilities of the LVF product family through its flexibility to adapt to different sensor configurations. The LVS-2+seamlessly evolves from the foundational 1VxR sensor configuration to the advanced 5V5R configuration.
- Is the first AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception product that eliminates the need for side cameras typically implemented in the legacy 11V5R configuration.
- Achieves surround-view perception using a 5V5R sensor architecture, which will accelerate mass deployment of premium L2/L2+ ADAS by significantly lowering hardware and system implementation costs. This transformation equips vehicles with improved support for vital functions such as traffic jam assist (TJA) and highway assist (HWA), as well as a vastly enhanced speed range for adaptive cruise control (ACC).
- Delivers a comprehensive fusion and perception software stack supporting premium surround-view L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance.
"The LeddarVision LVS-2+marks a paradigm shift, delivering unparalleled clarity, conviction and credibility," stated Frantz Saintellemy, President and CEO of LeddarTech. "With the demonstration of LVS-2+on the embedded system, we're igniting a tremendous opportunity for OEMs and Tier 1-2 suppliers, empowering them to accelerate the development of cost-effective perception solutions and support reduced development costs and translating into a decisive edge in today's competitive arena. LeddarTech has been engaged with various lead customers to validate and confirm that the LVS-2+offers a strategic advantage that amplifies safety and efficiency in shaping L2/L2+ ADAS applications. This monumental leap aligns seamlessly with industry objectives, including the pursuit of a 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 rating, making it a transformative stride in automotive technology," Mr. Saintellemy concluded.
