Cepton Launches New LiDAR Products with NVIDIA AI Computing Platform for Autonomous Driving Applications

Cepton Technologies, a provider of 3D LiDAR solutions for automotive, industrial and mapping applications, announced that it has release two new LiDAR products, Vista-M and Vista-X, to its product portfolio.

The Vista series LiDAR solutions are built with Cepton’s patented Micro-Motion Technology (MMT™) and run on the NVIDIA DRIVE in-vehicle AI computing platform—providing high resolution and long-range imaging to enable all levels of autonomous applications.

The Vista-M LiDAR packs a 120-degree field of view (FOV) with 150-meter range into a sensor the size of a typical box of crayons. This compact design enables LiDAR integration with a vehicle’s headlights, tail lights and side view mirrors, giving designers more freedom to bring intelligence and autonomy into vehicle designs. Currently, Cepton is providing this miniaturized solution to its automotive partners for different integration approaches.

The Vista-X LiDAR supports an expanded 200-meter range capability at a 10 percent reflectivity target to 120-degree FOV. This wide FOV enables object detection, tracking and localization in a much wider area. The uniform 0.2-degree spatial resolution across the entire FOV eliminates the complexity and safety risk in run-time FOV configurations enabling the design flexibility to integrate Vista-X into the front, back or inside of the vehicle.

“High performance and cost efficient LiDARs, such as Cepton’s Vista solutions, are important developments that will help bring self-driving vehicles to market,” said Glenn Schuster, senior director, technical marketing, NVIDIA. “By leveraging the NVIDIA DRIVE platform’s high-performance computational capabilities for processing Cepton LiDAR data, vehicles can get an accurate representation of their surrounding environment to autonomously navigate.”
