Dr. Jun Pei explains why Cepton has focused on high-performance, affordable mass-market ADAS lidars since 2016, and how the company's unique MMT approach enables Cepton lidars to deliver the promise.
The cost of lidar sensors has been a hot topic for years. In this article, we attempt to provide some useful context to understand lidar pricing and the factors that impact it the most.
Tech for Good
Dr. Jun Pei, CEO and co-founder of Cepton, discusses protecting privacy and minimizing AI bias in an automated world, and why lidar technology might hold the key.
Final part of a series on lidar pricing, that provides a framework for lidar cost reduction.
Second in a series on lidar pricing, that delves into the role of the market in constraining pricing and the tradeoff between performance expectations and cost.
First in a series of blogs, that provides some useful context to understand lidar pricing and the factors that impact it the most.
The benefits of Lidar as a safety device for automobiles rather than as an enabler for AVs are easy to overlook – but Dr. Jun Pei of Cepton tells ITS International why that would be a big mistake.
In a world increasingly wary of excessive surveillance, the ideal crowd analytics solution would need to be sensitive to privacy concerns. The good news is that such an ideal technology already exists today – it is called smart lidar.
LiDAR Magazine revisited Cepton's headquarters to get updated on the company's latest developments: Series C funding from Koito, expanding the team of top lidar talent and a growing global customer base.
Autonomous Vehicle International
Due to common misconceptions, lidar sometimes gets left out of the conversation about the future of automobiles, but Cepton believes lidar is a pivotal sensor in enabling safe autonomy.
Once considered a sensor necessary only in fully automated vehicles, lidar is increasingly being adopted for ADAS to enabled the next generation of safety and autonomous features.
Cepton aims to unleash lidar’s potential by transforming dumb sensors into smart, AI-ready sense organs for the vehicles, cities and buildings of the future.
