Next-generation optical sensors deliver perception to smart machines with unrivaled resolution and cost
May 09, 2017 – SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cepton Technologies, Inc., a provider of 3D sensing solutions for automotive and industrial applications, today announced the launch of its HR80T long-range and HR80W wide-angle LiDAR products at the annual NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Cepton’s HR series drives automation forward by bringing perception and 3D mapping to smart machines with higher resolution and longer range imaging at dramatically lower costs.
“Companies in the automotive and industrial sectors are struggling to bring 3D perception to smart machines due to the lack of currently available high-resolution, high-performance and low-cost LiDAR solutions,” said Dr. Mark McCord, co-founder and VP of engineering, Cepton. “As a result, machines currently live in the dark, with limited view of the world around them. Cepton is pushing the limits of LiDAR technology. These new products provide our customers with an immediate and practical means to enable perception in smart machines and are currently the most viable solution for mass deployment on autonomous vehicles.”
Cepton’s patented technology features a unique micro-motion technique that eliminates the need for large spinning parts. This allows for significantly smaller devices to be produced, with high reliability. Additional product and company highlights include:
- Cepton’s LiDAR products are shipping now, and the company is generating revenue from shipments.
- Cepton has filed five core patents covering its LiDAR designs.
- The HR80T long-range device has a detection range of beyond 200 meters.
- Production of Cepton LiDAR units can be automated (as opposed to handmade) for rapid scaling of manufacturing and distribution.
Cepton will demonstrate its technologies at the GTC in San Jose, CA, where it will be exhibiting at booth #808.
Cepton is a 3D sensing solutions provider that is shipping next generation LiDAR products for the automotive and industrial markets. Cepton’s LiDAR technology delivers unrivaled performance and resolution at low cost, to enable perception for the smart machines of tomorrow. For more information, visit http://www.cepton.com/.
