LeddarTech, a leader in ADAS and sensing technology, has been been selected by France’s MILLA Group as the supplier for LiDAR sensors for its autonomous shuttle.
The company’s Leddar Pixell is a solid-state LiDAR that provides a 180-degree horizontal field of view (FoV) and can offer 360-degree coverage of a vehicle.
Since 2019, MILLA’s POD shuttles are rolling daily on open roads at the speed of 30 km/h in autonomous mode.
Éric Gendarme, Managing director of the MILLA Group, says: “MILLA has engaged with LeddarTech on the robust Leddar Pixell for our MILLA POD. The POD is an innovative autonomous shuttle that has been deployed throughout Europe and North America. The radical changes we implemented in the POD related to the design lend themselves well to the Leddar Pixell; this LiDAR enables us to have a 180-degree field of view, which increases safety and overall reliability of our autonomous shuttle.”
Frantz Saintellemy, President and COO of LeddarTech, adds: “The MILLA Group represents a forward-thinking organization that tackles autonomous shuttle technology with a new and innovative approach; we are proud that our Leddar Pixell contributed to MILLA’s technical certification with the RATP Group.”
Founded in 2007, LeddarTech has over 95 patented technologies (granted or pending) enhancing ADAS and autonomous driving capabilities.
