Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance MMT(R) lidar solutions, today announced that its CEO Dr. Jun Pei will speak at TechCrunch’s signature annual event TC Sessions: Mobility 2022 in San Mateo, California, taking place on May 18-20, 2022. Cepton is scheduled to present at 11:45 a.m. PT on May 19. In the session titled “Breaking the luxury spell: A journey to commercializing safe autonomy for all,” Dr. Pei will address common misconceptions about liar technology and discuss how Cepton’s Micro Motion Technology (MMT(R)) enables scalable lidar solutions for everyday consumer vehicles. “The lidar industry is at an inflection point where we are truly confident in the pivotal role lidar plays in changing the future of mobility,” said Dr. Pei. “Last year, General Motors introduced Ultra Cruise as a solution that ultimately enables ‘door-to-door hands-free driving.’ This aligns with our vision to bring safe, autonomous transportation to everyone. While lidar is a key enabler of autonomous driving, we also believe that safety should be the standard for all levels of autonomy, and lidar is essential to the enhancement of automotive safety. With that, we are dedicated to commercializing lidar for everyday passenger cars. I look forward to sharing Cepton’s journey to the industry’s largest ADAS lidar series production award, and to discuss the work that has been done at Cepton to make safe autonomy accessible to all.”
