Introducing LeddarTM detection
LeddarTM (Light Emitting Diode Detection and Ranging) is a novel detection and ranging technology created by LeddarTech that performs detection and ranging by time-of-flight measurement using pulses from infrared LEDs.
Reliable and robust measurements
Contrary to laser scanners, the LeddarTM sensor does not work with a narrow collimated beam but with a wide illumination area, which enables it to accurately measure all types of objects.
Rugged assembly for long time operation
By using an area sensor as the collecting device of the reflected beam, the sensor simultaneously provides a given number of range values for different parts of the scene without any moving parts as generally used for area scanning.
16 Discrete Detection Segments to Cover an Area of Interest
The LED source is pulsed at a rate of 100,000 pulses per second. The light pulses propagate through the field of view, and the reflected light is captured by the 16-segment detector. Full-waveform analysis is performed on the captured signal to recover the individual object distances.
Long-Range Accuracy for Flexibility
While ultrasonic sensors are typically limited in their range of detection, LeddarTMTechnology can detect and locate objects at a distance of up to 50 meters under the harshest conditions.
Rugged Assembly for Extended Operation
By using a multiple-element detector as the collecting device of the reflected beam, the sensor simultaneously provides a given number of range values for different parts of the scene without the moving parts generally used for area scanning.
Tailored to Your Needs
LeddarTM technology is designed to be easily and rapidly integrated into various applications by developers and integrators. Depending on the final application, it can be available as assembled components, as OEM modules or even finished sensor products.
