Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, is in the spotlight. Cepton CEO and cofounder Dr. Jun Pei was a guest during a recent Proactive Investors interview. During the interview, Pei and Proactive Investors host Steve Darling discussed the importance of lidar technology and eye safety. Pei specifically talked about lidar impact on human eyes and eye safety, explaining Cepton’s commitment to safety and its approach to ensuring safety standards are met. He noted regulations require that any devices placed on vehicles adhere to eye safety standards and also explained that many people have misconceptions regarding the impact of different wavelengths on the eye. According to Pei, Cepton uses 905nm wavelengths for its lidar technology for safety as well as lower power consumption and reduced heat generation, which also effectively address safety concerns. Pei also noted that third-party certification and data-driven evidence ensure safety.
Finally, Pei talked about lidar’s performance in various weather conditions, explaining that because the technology operates in the near-infrared range, visibility extends slightly beyond that of cameras. While lidar can penetrate rain and fog to some extent, he states that in extreme weather conditions, automation should not be solely relied on. “We actually picked 905 laser as the fundamental laser wavelength just because of its maturity, its cost and many other benefits,” said Cepton cofounder and CEO Dr. Jun Pei during the interview. “And then the eye safety comes into the design by limiting how much light you can emit out. Very naturally, when it’s actually not very bright outside, what do you do? You open your eyes bigger, so you have a bigger receiver lens to capture the photons that come into the devices. So basically, I’m describing to you the entire design logic of our lidar that captures one of the bigger design wins out there.”
