Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a developer of lidar-based solutions that help enable Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (“ADAS”), autonomous vehicles (“AVs”), smart cities, connected spaces, and smart industrial applications, is ideally poised as expert opinions concerning AV safety lean in favor of using lidar technologies in addition to HD cameras. “The safety of AVs and ADAS hinges on the ability of vehicle’s systems to sense surrounding objects. Both HD cameras and lidar have their benefits and drawbacks; however, lidar is coming out ahead as the technology advances and costs come down. Industry experts like Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess confirm the growing consensus that lidar is an essential solution. According to Diess, Level 3 driving automation is safer with lidar because it offers redundant perception to 360-degree camera systems,” a recent article reads. “Cepton is leading the way in scaling up lidar for mass-market deployments. In addition to its significant ADAS lidar series production award with Koito on the General Motors business, Cepton has expanded its lidar use cases across smart infrastructure… Cepton is also engaged with the other top 10 global automotive OEMs with the aim of making lidar a standard safety feature in all vehicles.”
