LeddarTech is collaborating with Ningbo Sunny Automotive Optech as a member of the Leddar Ecosystem.

Sunny Automotive Optech, will work with LeddarTech in creating LiDAR solutions for automotive and mobility applications.

Sunny Automotive Optech will provide automotive grade optical design and industrialisation for optical subsystems as well as manufacturing services for the optical elements and subassemblies. The optical subsystems will include transmitter and receiver optics consisting of selected automotive-grade optical elements with a path to automotive qualification, testing and cost optimisation.

The partnership will accelerate the design cycle and provide a path to volume deployment for ADAS & AD applications. LeddarTech and Sunny Automotive Optech will start the collaboration on front and cocoon LiDAR optics designs, based on the LeddarEngine. The LeddarEngine is comprised of the LeddarCore LCA3 system-on-chip and LeddarSP signal processing library.

Sunny will contribute towards the automotive platform offering that includes the LeddarEngine by introducing automotive grade optical design and manufacturing services to Tier-1 customers developing LiDAR solutions.

“Sunny Automotive Optech’s track record of achieving cost optimisation through innovation, balance in product and process design and supply chain management produces an optimised solution between performance and cost,” said LeddarTech VP of Strategic Partnerships and Corporate Development, Michael Poulin.

“This added competency will enhance the industry’s competitiveness of the LeddarEngine patented technology. Sunny Automotive Optech is a leader in optical solutions for autonomous and intelligent driving, and together with LeddarTech’s additional partners, we will be positioned to offer customers complete and flexible solutions for various AD & ADAS applications versus single products and services.”
