OPTIS, a global virtual prototyping company, and LeddarTech have announced a partnership enabling the industrial simulation of advanced LiDAR solutions.

This collaboration allows transportation companies to virtually test and integrate their next generation of LiDAR developed around the LeddarCore integrated circuit (IC) before its actual release.

Perception of the environment is key to enabling autonomous driving capability. OPTIS simulation solutions are leveraged to virtually recreate cameras and LiDAR operations on autonomous cars and simulate their use in real life scenarios, allowing for safer, more cost-effective virtual tests of LiDAR systems developed with LeddarCore ICs.

LeddarTech’s advanced optical sensing technology is highly complementary with OPTIS’s SPEOS and VRX simulation capabilities. Using real material measurements, OPTIS can validate the LiDAR model and simulate the correct response from the LiDAR in real-time through a virtual closed loop simulation with automated driving functions.
