LeddarTech & Seoul Robotics Partner for Solid-State LiDAR-Based Perception Solutions

Seoul Robotics has joined LeddarTech as part of the company’s Leddar Ecosystem. LeddarTech and Seoul Robotics will collaborate on real-time advanced perception solutions to complement the Leddar Pixell. According to LeddarTech, its Leddar Pixell technology is designed for applications like shuttles, robotaxis, buses, and other commercial vehicles.

“By partnering with Seoul Robotics, a respected leader in 3D perception software for LiDAR sensors, LeddarTech, and our customers benefit from Seoul Robotics’ advanced and innovative LiDAR-based perception technology,” said Charles Boulanger, CEO of LeddarTech. “The collaboration yields a solution to greatly ease and accelerate the integration of the Leddar Pixell in a wide range of applications in mobility and industrial markets.”

Seoul Robotics SENSR 3D Software

Seoul Robotics, headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, has demonstrated expertise in LiDAR perception technology via its proprietary SENSR 3D software. This platform analyzes and processes LiDAR data for a number of applications and industries, including retail, logistics, and the planning of smart cities. Seoul Robotics also earned the “No. 1 Tech Startup” spot for South Korea by DB-Stars in 2019.

“Robust LiDAR sensors like the Leddar Pixell require the most advanced 3D perception software to process and interpret data in real-time,” said Mr. HanBin Lee, co-founder and CEO of Seoul Robotics. “Our industry-leading perception platform, SENSR, enables stronger understanding and interpretation of 3D data, better serving the market with highly detailed, LiDAR-based perception.”

An Overview of the Leddar Ecosystem

LeddarTech describes the ecosystem as an open and comprehensive LiDAR platform for OEMs and Tier1s. The Leddar Ecosystem focuses on:

  • Leveraging IP, expertise, and support from technology leaders.
  • Common architectures and standardized components to lower risk.
  • Scalable platforms and roadmaps for better performance and cost optimization.
  • More comprehensive solution sets that address the requirements of OEMs and Tier1s.
  • Improving production volume and the flexibility to address multiple LiDAR applications.

“Through our collaboration in the Leddar Ecosystem, we will provide object detection and classification, as well as speed measurement, direction, and location information without a need for map data, all while reducing cost and increasing efficiency,” Lee added.
