Leti, a research institute at CEA Tech, Transdev and IRT Nanoelec announced a pilot program to characterize and assess LiDAR sensors to increase performance and safety of autonomous vehicles.
In the pilot program, Leti teams will focus on perception requirements and challenges from a LiDAR system perspective and evaluate the sensors in real-world conditions. Vehicles will be exposed to objects with varying reflectivity, such as tires and street signs, as well as environmental conditions, such as weather, available light and fog. In addition to evaluating the sensors performance, the project will produce a list of criteria and objective parameters by which various commercial LiDAR systems could be evaluated.
