Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator of high-performance lidar solutions, today announced the unveiling of its groundbreaking new lidar, the Vista(R)-X120 Plus. The world’s slimmest software definable, top-end automotive lidar for real-time adaptive 3D perception, the Vista-X120 Plus embodies the automotive industry’s biggest trends – safety, autonomy, software definability and electrification – and packs Cepton’s next-generation innovations. “The Vista-X120 Plus’ upgraded scanning mechanism enables extremely dense point clouds, while simplifying software algorithms for efficient sensor calibration and dynamic perception,” said Cepton’s CTO and Co-Founder Dr. Mark McCord. “Our proprietary ASIC chip enables optimal signal processing to further maximize lidar efficiency and performance. The tunable ROI helps the vehicle perception better focus on potential hazards across different driving scenarios. In spite of its significantly elevated performance and flexibility, the Vista-X120 Plus consumes less than 18 W of power, which is exceptional for long-range lidars and will be important for integration into electric vehicles.”
