“Cepton’s automotive-grade lidar sensors have proven quality and reliability needed for mobile robotics solutions. Our lidar core technology enables the perfect combination of high performance, robustness, and unrivaled embedability.”
Cepton, Inc. (“Cepton” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, is collaborating with Exwayz to demonstrate new lidar-based visualization solutions for mobile robotics applications.
Exwayz provides plug-and-play perception software to enable lidar-based 3D mapping, localization and relocation as well as object detection and classification. Its complete SDK for real-time 3D processing is mainly used in mobile robots for logistics, construction, security, and more. Lidar solution providers, regardless of their software capabilities, can integrate Exwayz software with their lidar hardware for an easy demonstration of how lidar can enhance the intelligence of robotic applications. Cepton’s collaboration with Exwayz adds to Cepton’s existing perception solutions, creating new possibilities to streamline the development and offering of integrated lidar robotic systems across a rapidly growing customer base.
Because of its excellent 3D sensing capabilities and ability to operate under challenging lighting conditions, lidar is quickly becoming an essential sensor technology in robotics. Lidar provides unparalleled accuracy in detecting an object’s distance, size, and movement speed. High-resolution 3D Lidar data not only helps robotic systems navigate safely and independently, but also allows operators to easily track their location while gaining important insights into how space is being used (for example, traffic, space occupancy and crowd density). Lidar operates day and night, indoors and outdoors, making it available 24/7. In addition, lidar does not collect biometric data, allowing it to be used in privacy-sensitive settings to accurately classify people from other objects and anonymously track their movements.
Cepton offers a full suite of lidar sensors for smart vehicle and infrastructure applications, as well as proprietary perception solutions. Cepton’s collaboration with Exwayz unlocks the potential use of its lidar technology across a broad range of mobile robotics applications. Leveraging the versatility and reliability of Cepton’s high-performance, easy-to-integrate lidar, Cepton and Exwayz aim to provide an immediate solution to accelerate solution integrations for global customers.
“Cepton’s automotive-grade lidar sensors have demonstrated the quality and reliability needed for mobile robotics solutions,” says Henri Häfner, Director of Product Management, Marketing and Business Development at Cepton. “Our lidar core technology enables the perfect combination of high performance, robustness, and unparalleled embeddability.
We are now excited to be working with Exwayz to deploy Cepton’s award-winning Nova Lidar for near-range applications. Nova is designed to address cognitive blind spots, with its miniature size ideal for small unmanned systems. Exwayz offers outstanding customer focused support along with their products. Their agile and dynamic work style impressed me from day one. We can’t wait to show our customers how they can leverage accurate, anonymous 3D lidar visualization to elevate the intelligence and safety of mobile robots. ”
“We’ve been working with Cepton since the first day we launched our product in October 2021,” says Matias Corcia, CTO and Co-Founder of Exwayz. “In addition to the impressive range and level of detail measured by their sensors, I’m impressed with the integration and versatility of Cepton’s product line.” , which perfectly fits the needs of the industry in terms of integration and strength to make autonomous systems a reality.”
Hassan Bouchiba, CEO and Co-Founder of Exwayz, adds: “We are thrilled with the experiments that our teams are conducting together on the brand new Nova lidar and can’t wait to see it integrated into various systems to make 3D visualization reliable and safe at close range.”
As an integrated provider, Cepton offers Lidar solutions that are flexible and compatible with both proprietary and third-party software. Cepton is developing the next generation Helius Smart Lidar system for smart cities, traffic management, security, crowd analytics and robotic automation. The first generation of Helius has already been deployed globally since 2019, helping to transform cities and spaces while making a real impact in the world.
