Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, has been awarded a multimillion sales contract from one of the leading U.S. highway tolling systems in the country. The company announced that its exclusive, state-of-the-art lidar solution will be deployed nationwide; the contract is designed to improve and enable accurate and intelligent tolling applications. According to the announcement, the large-scale contract calls for CPTN’s Sora series lidar sensors to be positioned on several major tollways located in the Tri-State area and Northern California in what is projected to be the largest commercial lidar deployment in the tolling sector to date. The company noted that the partnership has potential for future projects, perhaps even outside of the United States. “We’re proud to announce our new contract win with one of the largest tolling system operators in the U.S. and contribute to the infrastructure rebuilding initiative,” said Cepton cofounder and CEO Dr. Jun Pei in the press release.
“In addition to superior performance, our Sora lidars were designed using the same auto-grade building blocks that have been validated by OEMs through our flagship automotive lidar program, and are reliable, embeddable, scalable and energy efficient, which are key advantages for tolling applications. . . . Lidar has tremendous potential to transform the tolling industry, and I am very proud that Cepton has become a pioneer in commercializing lidar with real-world, large-scale deployments. Our multimillion-dollar contract with the customer is a testament to the high quality and scalability of our lidar solutions, as well as to our commitment to improving everyone’s mobility experience across automotive and smart infrastructure applications. I look forward to seeing our lidar solutions serving millions of drivers this year. I am also confident this win, and subsequent deployments, will advance the use of lidar across multiple smart infrastructure sectors.”
