dSPACE and LeddarTech Join Forces to Drive Development of Lidar for Self-Driving Cars

The collaboration will combine LeddarTech’s laser sensors in simulation solutions and dSPACE’s simulation models for testing and validation, as well as the sensor simulation environment.

dSPACE and LeddarTech have entered into a partnership to jointly drive forward the development of lidar technologies for autonomous driving. The close cooperation will enable dSPACE and LeddarTech to provide simulation models and interfaces for lidar sensors, enabling OEMs and suppliers to integrate lidar into ready-for-application solutions.

The cooperation will support the emulation of new LeddarTech laser sensors in simulation solutions at an early development stage. Moreover, dSPACE will provide simulation models for testing and validation, as well as the sensor simulation environment for validating camera, lidar, and radar sensors throughout the development process.

The dSPACE simulation solution generates point clouds in real time to simulate objects. The simulation models help determine the most effective positioning of the sensor on the vehicle (sweet spot), as well as the sensor limits (corner cases).  LeddarTech will be able to incorporate dSPACE's sensor models into its development projects.
 
dSPACE and LeddarTech are jointly driving forward the development of lidar technologies for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD).
