Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, is collaborating with NVIDIA to incorporate its Vista-X120 Plus lidar into DRIVE Sim, an end-to-end simulation platform built on Omniverse. The company noted that the announcement builds on previous integrations of its automotive lidar models that were used for the development of autonomous driving algorithms, sensors and software. In fact, the announcement noted that Cepton was one of the first lidar companies to showcase a 360-degree-coverage, dual-range lidar simulation; this tech was key in developing near-range blind spot elimination and long-range obstacle detection. The collaboration involves Cepton providing simulated sensor data from its award-winning adaptive lidar for use in a variety of ways. The addition of the Vista-X120 Plus lidar model to NVIDIA Omniverse “provides greater flexibility to AV developers, accelerating technology development and reducing cost,” said a NVIDIA representative. “Our Vista-X120 Plus enables adaptive 3D perception capabilities that can truly help vehicles focus on what matters on the road,” said Cepton chief technology officer Dr. Dongyi Liao in the press release. “Requirements on a lidar’s range, resolution and power consumption vary across different use cases, for example, highway cruising and navigating a busy neighborhood. With a software-definable ROI, Vista-X120 Plus provides an extremely flexible and versatile solution for assisted and autonomous driving.”
