COAST Autonomous selects LeddarTech’s solid-state LiDAR technology as the most reliable solution to achieve maximum safety levels for its self-driving vehicles designed for campus and urban environments.
COAST Autonomous has developed self-driving vehicles that integrate several detection technologies, including LiDAR, RADAR, and camera. LeddarTech’s LiDAR provides full coverage with no dead zones within the entire perimeter of the vehicle, also referred to as the cocoon. This protects vulnerable road users such as pedestrians who may approach the vehicle in stop-and-go situations. LeddarTech’s cocoon LiDAR provides a unique solution enabling safe, fully autonomous vehicles. “With the intent of providing the safest rides to our passengers, our selection of detection technologies takes into consideration the maturity of the partners we work with and their ability to consistently deliver on their promises,” stated Pierre Lefevre, Chief Technology Officer at COAST Autonomous. “With more than a decade of experience building LiDAR sensors, LeddarTech is the perfect partner for us and has consistently shown it could exceed our expectations.”
