Lidar products from LeddarTech have been integrated into Baidu’s Apollo autonomous driving open platform via an open source software development kit.
The products are now compatible with Apollo 3.5, the latest version of the platform, through the integration of an open source software development kit (SDK).
The auto and mobility lidar platform from Quebec-based LeddarTech equips key suppliers with the technology, tools and resources they need to design their own differentiated lidar offering and meet the requirements of various advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) applications. At the core of the platform is the LeddarEngine, consisting of highly optimized SoCs and signal processing software that meets ISO 26262 ASIL-B standards and has been designed to enable LeddarTech’s customers to deliver automotive-grade lidar sensors that comply with functional safety requirements.
“An open platform is a powerful model that fosters win-win, added-value partnerships throughout the automotive supply chain,” said Frantz Saintellemy, LeddarTech’s president and COO. “With our open source SDK for the Apollo platform, the data output format will allow easier comparison and system development.”
