Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN) is a Silicon Valley innovator of lidar-based solutions for autonomous vehicle (“AV”) and advanced driver assistance system (“ADAS”) sectors. “Cepton leads the way in enabling the world’s leading automotive companies to integrate lidar at scale and transition to an increasingly adaptive, safety-centric future. Safety is at the forefront of ADAS/AV technology concerns, and the industry’s success hinges on the availability of perception solutions that accurately identify objects under various conditions… Dr. Jun Pei, CEO and co-founder of Cepton, believes lidar brings unparalleled vehicle perception by ‘seeing’ things in 3D instead of the standard 2D view produced by cameras. By being able to perceive depth, lidar provides additional information critical to maintaining vehicle safety and protecting pedestrians, structures and other objects within the vehicle’s surroundings,” a recent article reads. “Cepton is taking lidar mainstream by engaging with leading global automotive OEMs such as Ford Motor Company to make it a standard safety feature in all vehicles. According to a 2021 article by Ford, CPTN engaged with the company over several years for research, development and small-scale deployments. In addition to delivering custom lidar solutions for R&D on advanced ADAS features, Cepton also helped Ford deploy lidar solutions on select smart city projects.”
