Several Cepton booth partners will showcase how their collaborations with Cepton are enabling next-generation solutions across these markets.
Cepton Product Innovation
Cepton’s lidar solutions are built upon the company’s patented, foundational MMT™ architecture, which is frictionless, rotation-free and mirrorless, and enables high performance, reliability, and high-volume manufacturability. During CES 2020, Cepton will showcase key products, including:
- Vista: Best-in-class lidar solutions delivering an exceptional combination of performance, reliability and affordability with compact, embeddable designs that enable seamless integration into a wide range of autonomous systems
- Sora: A revolutionary 380 Hz frame rate lidar solution that features an unparalleled 1140 scan lines per second, enabling accurate high-resolution profiling of objects moving at highway speeds, making it ideal for road tolling, container scanning and other similar automated applications
- Helius: A highly innovative combination of lidar technology, edge computing and advanced lidar perception software to deliver real-time object detection, tracking, classification and velocity, making it an ideal solution for a range of applications such as smart cities/ITS, security, crowd analytics and more
Cepton’s Technology at Koito’s Booth
Cepton’s technology will also be displayed at the booth of automotive Tier 1 and world-leading provider of automotive lighting systems, Koito Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (“Koito”). Koito, along with its subsidiary, North American Lighting, Inc. (“NAL”) that is the leading supplier of automotive lighting systems in North America, will exhibit at LVCC, North Hall booth #5220.
Cepton’s CES Booth Partners
At Cepton’s booth, several other companies will showcase their innovative solutions, including those developed in collaboration with Cepton:
- Dataspeed: Dataspeed provides complete autonomous R&D vehicle integration solutions, including drive-by-wire kits, that enable companies to get up and running quickly on their algorithm, sensor, or data research activities. In May 2019, Cepton and Dataspeed announced a partnership to offer seamless integrations of Cepton’s compact lidars in autonomous vehicles. This innovative partnership and collaborative vehicle integration won the Autonomous Vehicle Technology ACES 2020 Award in the Autonomy/Sensors category.
- Kudan: Kudan delivers fast, robust and accurate localization and mapping solutions based on lidar and camera image data. Their proprietary approach helps reduce drift and resulting blur in 3D maps caused by high-speed movement. Able to run without a GPU or accelerator, Kudan’s software does not require pre- and post- processing to generate significantly lighter (>300x) maps than raw lidar data. Kudan and Cepton are collaborating to bring significant benefits to autonomous systems and robots by reducing hardware costs (up to $50K USD) and improving productivity (up to 2X).
- May Mobility: By developing and deploying autonomous shuttles, May Mobility is transforming cities through autonomous technology to create a safer, greener, more accessible world. Using advanced autonomous perception and control software and Cepton’s lidars, May Mobility is the only enterprise autonomous transportation company providing daily transit services, currently serving public and private customers in major metropolitan areas.
- Wideye: Wideye is a dedicated entity of AGC, a world-leading supplier of flat, automotive and display glass, as well as chemicals and other high-tech materials and components. Wideye aims to be a global lidar integrator by working with industry leaders like Cepton to enable lidar integration all around the vehicle – behind windshields, glass trims, side- and backlites, sunroofs and any other place fitted with a glass cover. Wideye will showcase its innovative, infrared (IR) transparent glass solution that enables the seamless integration of Cepton’s compact Vista lidars behind automotive windshields.
- MechaSpin: MechaSpin is an industry leading lidar systems integrator focused on deploying innovative perception solutions for a range of applications using 3D lidar technology. MechaSpin’s MSx Processing Engine enables real-time solutions to challenging machine perception, classification and object recognition problems. Using Cepton's state-of-the-art lidar sensors, MechaSpin is deploying lidar-based solutions for road tolling and other applications.
- MH Corbin: MH Corbin is a prominent manufacturer and distributor of highway safety and traffic management products. MH Corbin’s CONNECT:ITS can be integrated with Cepton’s lidars to deliver an easy to use, scalable and low power advanced roadside information system to monitor and respond to roadway conditions in real time. This system can be used for communicating warnings to drivers about road ice, low visibility and wrong way driving, among other use cases.
- INIT: As a leading, worldwide supplier of integrated intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and ticketing systems for buses, light rail and trains, INIT has been assisting transportation companies in making public transit more attractive, faster and more efficient for more than 35 years. Through a joint effort with Cepton, INIT is currently developing a smart platform solution for railway stations to provide greater security to boarding and disembarking passengers.
Cepton will also feature the following 30-minute presentation sessions by our booth partners during CES. These sessions are open to customers and media:
- Jan 7, 3:00 pm PT: Dataspeed
- Jan 8, 1:30 pm PT: Wideye/AGC
