In recent advancements within the automotive sector, LeddarTech Holdings Inc., a pioneer in artificial intelligence (AI) based sensor fusion and perception software for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving (AD), and parking applications, is making headlines once more. This time, it’s through its strengthened collaboration with Arm Holdings plc, a leading technology provider for the semiconductor industry. The partnership is set to be a focal point at the Embedded World 2024 exhibition and conference scheduled from April 9-11 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The collaboration emerges on the back of a strategic announcement made on March 13, 2024, spotlighting LeddarTech’s integration of its illustrious LeddarVision technology with Arm’s latest Automotive Enhanced (AE) technology. This partnership is not just a meeting of technological minds but a union aimed at accelerating the impetus of the automotive industry towards more AI-enabled ADAS and autonomous driving functionalities. The synergy created between LeddarTech’s sensor fusion capabilities and Arm’s AE compute technology promises to offer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 suppliers an accelerated path towards implementing cutting-edge, AI-driven automotive solutions.

At the heart of this collaboration is the LeddarVision Front Entry (LVF-E), an award-winning front-view fusion and perception stack designed specifically for entry-level SAE Level 2/2+ highway assist ADAS applications. This revolutionary product also meets the compliance standards of 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022, showcasing the commitment of both corporations to not only innovation but safety and regulatory adherence. The LVF-E is powered by the Texas Instruments’ TDA4VM-Q1 processor, illustrating the seamless integration between the hardware and software components which form the backbone of modern ADAS solutions.

What makes this collaboration and its showcase at Embedded World 2024 significant is the demonstration of what can be achieved when two industry leaders join forces. The automotive sector is at a critical juncture, with ADAS and autonomous driving technologies not just seen as enhancements, but essential tools in the quest for safer, more efficient, and sustainable mobility. Innovations such as the LeddarVision technology, especially when paired with Arm’s processing capabilities, are crucial in navigating the complex landscapes of modern vehicular systems and traffic environments.

LeddarTech’s presence at Embedded World 2024 is not limited to demonstrations alone. Heinz Oyrer, the company’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, is scheduled to deliver a presentation focused on overcoming ADAS challenges through strategic partnerships with companies like Arm. This discussion is especially pertinent, considering the myriad of challenges faced by the automotive industry—from stringent safety regulations to the technological demands of autonomous driving.

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Quebec City, Canada, LeddarTech has grown into a global software company with additional R&D centers in Montreal, Toronto, and Tel Aviv, Israel. Its commitment to providing AI-based sensor fusion and perception software solutions has positioned it as a critical player in the advancement of global mobility solutions.

As the Embedded World 2024 approaches, the automotive industry eyes will be on LeddarTech and Arm, eager to witness the future of ADAS and autonomous driving technology. Their partnership not only highlights the limitless potentials within the realm of automotive technology but underscores a shared vision for a future where driving is safer, more accessible, and far more intelligent.
