LeddarTech, an automotive software company specializing in AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception software for ADAS, AD and parking applications, has unveiled LeddarVision Surround-View (LVS-2+) at CES 2024.
Developed on the Nvidia Orin embedded system, the LVS-2+ offers flexibility for portability to other embedded platforms. Engineered to power premium L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance and meet the 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 safety rating, it is the company’s second AI-based low-level fusion and perception software product to demonstrate maturity on an embedded system.
As a new addition to the LVF product family, the LVS-2+ can adapt to various sensor configurations, from a foundational 1VxR sensor setup to the advanced 5V5R configuration.
LVS-2+ is the first AI-based low-level sensor fusion and perception product to remove the need for side cameras, moving away from the conventional 11V5R configuration. With a 5V5R sensor architecture, it achieves surround-view perception, potentially facilitating the widespread deployment of premium L2/L2+ ADAS. The company says that this is crucial to reduce hardware and system implementation costs, making it easier to integrate essential features such as traffic jam assist (TJA), highway assist (HWA) and an extended speed range for adaptive cruise control (ACC).
Frantz Saintellemy, president and CEO of LeddarTech, explained, “With the demonstration of LVS-2+ on the embedded system, we’re igniting a tremendous opportunity for OEMs and Tier 1-2 suppliers, empowering them to accelerate the development of cost-effective perception solutions and support reduced development costs, and translating into a decisive edge in today’s competitive arena.”
