Magneti Marelli has acquired a stake in LeddarTech Inc.,
a worldwide leader in solid state LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensing
technology. Magneti Marelli and LeddarTech have also entered into a technical
and commercial cooperation agreement to jointly develop complete LiDAR systems
aimed at autonomous driving applications and destined for integration in
automotive lighting products for OEMs worldwide.
LiDAR is a sensor technology based on laser light that –
in combination with cameras and radar – will enable autonomous driving levels 2
through 5 (from partial to full driving automation, as defined by SAE
Autonomous driving requires a range of sensors to provide
information which enables the car to understand and navigate the environment.
LiDAR technology is particularly suitable due to its advanced features,
including precise object localization and multiple objects detection even if
they are moving, or in difficult lighting and weather conditions.
Founded in 2007 in Quebec City, LeddarTech is a reference
in optical detection and ranging technology. Thanks to its unique approach in
