LeddarTech's high-performance, multi-element LiDAR sensors will be incorporated into full machine control and monitoring systems used in industrial applications worldwide
LeddarTech, provider of a versatile and scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platform, announced that Flodraulic Group will utilize its LiDAR sensor integrator in full machine control and system monitoring.
Flodraulic, a leader in the design and manufacture of custom control system solutions, chose LeddarTech’s technology because of its ability to deliver high-performance, cost-effective, detection and ranging solid-state LiDAR sensors engineered for any environment. LeddarTech’s Leddar IS16 LiDAR sensors provide both distance and angular positioning while performing fast, continuous, and accurate analysis of an area of operation. As a result, the weather-resistant solid-state sensors can reliably detect, locate, and measure a wide range of objects, making it an ideal solution for deployment in harsh environmental conditions.
Deployed 22 full machine control and monitoring systems
Flodraulic recently deployed 22 full machine control and monitoring systems to Marcrest, an agricultural machinery manufacturer based in Ontario, Canada. Marcrest’s Swing-Max power hitch with Auto Guidance is equipped with the first fully automated steering system for in-field baling and on-road travel. By leveraging Flodraulic’s system, and LeddarTech’s LiDAR sensor, agricultural operators using Marcrest’s power hitch can instantly double their small bale productivity. “Flodraulic is proud to be a pioneer in LiDAR technology as a system integrator in the design and manufacture of custom solutions for the mobile, oil & gas and industrial markets by adopting LeddarTech’s innovative LiDAR solutions,” states Chris Passmore, director of technologies at Flodraulic. “With over a decade of expertise in LiDAR technology and developing solutions based on their LeddarEngine, LeddarTech is the perfect partner for us to meet the needs of our diverse customer base.”
“We are honored that our solid-state LiDAR sensors were selected and trusted by Flodraulic to be part of their solutions to deliver highly-efficient industrial applications to market,” stated Adrian Pierce, VP of global sales & business development at LeddarTech. He went on to say, “Flodraulic’s strong Engineering team continues to successfully support their OEM partners through the concept, design, prototyping, and production stages of autonomous solutions using LiDAR technology.
