May Mobility vehicle fleet to integrate advanced LiDAR products from Cepton


Cepton Technologies, Inc., a provider of 3D LiDAR solutions for automotive, industrial and mapping applications, has announced a partnership with May Mobility, the first developer of autonomous driving technology to replace an existing transportation solution with self-driving fleet vehicles on public roads.

May Mobility will integrate Cepton LiDAR products in their self-driving vehicle fleets. A successful pilot was completed in 2017, with the May Mobility fleet transporting riders on public roads in downtown Detroit.

May Mobility has created a comprehensive autonomous vehicle technology stack that is accelerating the availability of fleet vehicles to corporate and public partners. Leveraging this technology stack, May Mobility brings communities closer together with fleets of self-driving vehicles that make short distance travel safe, personal and effortless. From business districts to educational campuses to residential areas, May provides a fully-managed, right-sized microtransit service that helps people engage more fully in the places where they live and work.

May chose to work with Cepton and support Cepton LiDAR solutions because of the combination of advanced technology, the rapid pace of innovation and the culture of customer success that has been evident in all the interactions between the two companies.

Since founding the company in 2016, Cepton has already launched and shipped three LiDAR solutions that are disrupting the market. Cepton LiDAR solutions deliver cost effective, high performance, high resolution products at scale today. The company designs solutions around proven automotive-grade, high-performance components, rather than trying to base core technology on immature, expensive parts, or manufacture components that are not ready for commercial deployment.
