As the automotive industry evolves, our lidar innovations never cease to advance. This new product is an extension of Cepton’s vision since 2016, which is building capable, reliable and affordable lidar solutions to enable safe and autonomous transportation for everyone. We can’t wait to introduce Vista-X120 Plus to our customers, partners and visitors at CES 2023.”

In addition, Cepton announced a collaboration with Exwayz to demonstrate a new lidar-based perception solutions for mobile robotics applications. According to the announcement, Exwayz’s plug-and-play perception software enables lidar-based 3D mapping, localization and relocalization, and object detection and classification. Through the partnership, Cepton anticipates enhancing its existing perception solutions and offering new possibilities that streamline the development and demonstration of lidar-integrated robotic systems. “Cepton’s automotive-grade lidar sensors have demonstrated the quality and reliability necessary for mobile robotics solutions,” said Cepton director of product management, marketing and business development Henri Häfner in the press release. “Our core lidar technology enables an optimal combination of high performance, ruggedness and unrivaled embeddability.

We are now pleased to be working with Exwayz to also deploy Cepton’s award-winning Nova Lidar for near-range applications. Nova is designed to address perception blind spots, with its miniature size that’s ideal for smaller unmanned systems.”
