Trilumina logoTriLumina, a developer of solid-state illumination modules for LiDAR, has announced that it will be demonstrating a new 256-pixel 3D LiDAR solution at CES2017. Powered by TriLumina’s illumination modules, the solid-state LiDAR solution is designed to enable next-generation Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles. Built in collaboration with LeddarTech, the LiDAR platform provides a high-performance, low-cost system for OEMs of mass-market ADAS applications.

TriLumina-powered 3D automotive LiDAR units will also be showcased at CES2017 at the Renesas Advanced and Autonomous Track Experience at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

TriLumina’s new illumination modules accelerate the development of low cost LiDAR sensor systems for a wide variety of applications on any vehicle platform. The modules replace expensive, bulky scanning LiDARs with high resolution and long-range sensing in a small and robust package.

According to Brian Wong, CEO of TriLumina, “TriLumina’s illumination modules address some of the most difficult technical hurdles facing solid state LiDAR development. At TriLumina, we are building complete illumination modules with our patented, back-emitting, flip-chip VCSEL arrays and driver circuits to provide the highest efficiency and most powerful illumination solutions available. The 3D solid-state LiDAR solutions presented at CES will demonstrate the incredible capabilities of our laser solutions and how they can be rapidly deployed to enable new signal processing capabilities such as those in the LeddarCore ICs.”
