- Accelerated automotive sensing solutions through two acquisitions:
- Phantom Intelligence: This acquisition advanced LeddarTech’s strategy to aggregate and consolidate automotive sensing technologies, enabling the company to offer comprehensive solutions to our customers at lower cost.
- VayaVision: This acquisition added a vital building block by combining sensor fusion and perception technology with LeddarTech’s proven LeddarEngine™ platform. The LeddarEngine platform built on an open software architecture combined with LeddarVision™ enables LeddarTech to address customers’ need for sensing solutions that are hardware agnostic, scalable, and adaptable to any vehicle and sensor configuration.
